SHANE O’DONNELL HAS been included in Clare’s starting line-up for Sunday’s Munster SHC opener against neighbours Waterford in Walsh Park. 

O’Donnell, who scored 3-3 in the 2013 All-Ireland hurling final, wasn’t part of the Clare squad for the league due to his studies in Harvard.

He’s since returned and will start in the full-forward line alongside John Conlon, who has successfully fought back from injury. 

Paraic Fanning’s Waterford team sees Kevin Moran named at wing-back and Austin Gleeson at wing-forward, with the Bennett brothers Shane and Stephen starting in the full-forward line.
