The Tipperary team to play Armagh in Round 3B of the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship in Semple Stadium, tomorrow afternoon, July 15th at 5pm, has been announced by manager Liam Kearns.

There are two changes to the side that lined out last weekend with championship debutant Willie Connors (Kiladangan) coming into the back line while up front there is a welcome return to the starting fifteen for Philip Austin (Borrisokane) following his hugely impressive second half introduction last Saturday.

  1. Ciarán Kenrick - Moyle Rovers
  2. Willie Connors - Kiladangan 
  3. Alan Campbell - Moyle Rovers
  4. Emmet Moloney - Drom & Inch
  5. Bill Maher - Kilsheelan-Kilcash
  6. Robbie Kiely - Carbery Rangers
  7. Jimmy Feehan - Killenaule
