Ian Kenny has been handed his full championship debut for Waterford in the All-Ireland SHC quarter-final tie against Munster rivals Clare at Pairc Ui Chaoimh tomorrow (throw-in 3.45pm).

The Ballygunner clubman comes into the full back line as a replacement for the injured Shane Fives, whom he replaced in the Munster final defeat to Limerick six days ago.

The Deise will take plenty of positives from the 0-25 to 0-21 loss last weekend as they enter the All-Ireland series, going level at the second water break only for the holders to pull clear in the final stages.

Waterford (All-Ireland SHC v Clare): Stephen O'Keeffe; Ian Kenny, Conor Prunty, Shane McNulty; Calum Lyons, Tadhg De Burca, Kevin Moran; Jamie Barron, Jake Dillon; Stephen Bennett, Kieran Bennett, Jack Fagan; Dessie Hutchinson, Austin Gleeson, Jack Prendergast.

Subs: Billy Nolan, Peter Hogan, Mark O'Brien, Mikey Kearney, Patrick Curran, Colin Dunford, Ciaran Kirwan, Darragh Lyons, Neil Montgomery, Iarlaith Daly, Conor Gleeson.

It's a bumper weekend of inter-county championship matches with football deciders in Leinster, Munster and Ulster, two All-Ireland hurling quarter-finals, two Joe McDonagh Cup ties and the Christy Ring and Nicky Rackard Cup finals. Be sure to follow all of the action live on the match tracker.
