The Laois senior hurlers have announced their starting team for this weekend’s meeting against Kerry.
There is one change on the team which started in the round two game against Antrim.
Aaron Dunphy comes onto the team at wing-forward, while Cha Dwyer is named at midfield alongside John Lennon.
Jack Kelly slots into the wing-back role in place of Lee Cleere.
What will come as a relief to Laois supporters is that Mark Kavanagh, who picked up an injury at training on Monday evening, is down to start on Eddie Brennan’s side this weekend.
Laois play Kerry in Austin Stack Park, Tralee, on Saturday June 8 at 3pm.
LAOIS: Enda Rowland (St Lazerian’s Abbeyleix); Donnacha Hartnett (Mountmellick), Matthew Whelan (Borris-Kilcotton), Joe Phelan (Camross); Jack Kelly (Rathdowney-Errill), Ryan Mullaney (Castletown), Padraig Delaney (The Harps),; John Lennon (Rosenallis), Cha Dwyer (Ballinakill); Aaron Dunphy (Borris-Kilcotton), Willie Dunphy (Clough-Ballacolla), Paddy Purcell (Rathdowney-Errill); Mark Kavanagh (Rathdowney-Errill), Eanna Lyons (Ballyfin), Ross King (Rathdowney-Errill).
