Galway senior camogie manager Tony O’Donovan has made four changes from the team that beat Tipperary two weeks ago for this Sunday’s Littlewoods Ireland National League meeting with Offaly.

The game is part of a double header with the Galway hurlers who also face Offaly on Sunday (2pm).

Craughwell’s Shauna Burke returns to goal instead of Caitriona Daly and Ballinderreen’s Emma Helebert is named at corner back after another cruciate injury struck her club mate Siobhan Coen.  Roisin Black moves to the half back line.

Fresh off scoring 1-2 for the footballers against Mayo last Sunday, Cappataggle’s Caitriona Cormican is named in the half forward line.  And there’s a first ever start for Clarinbridge’s Carrie Dolan who captained the under 16s to All-Ireland glory in 2015.

Galway will start as favourites against the Faithful County who suffered defeats to Tipperary and Wexford.  And should the Tribeswomen prevail, it’ll set up a winner-takes-all showdown away to the Slaneysiders seven days later.

It’s a busy week for Galway camogie teams with five sides in action.  Lorraine Larkin’s minors begin their All-Ireland title defence when they travel to Kilkenny on Sunday (1pm Pilltown).

St. Brigid’s College, Loughrea welcome St. Mary’s Secondary School, New Ross on Saturday (3pm Killimor) in the All-Ireland PPS Junior A semi-final.

And the Connacht GAA Centre in Bekan hosts a double header on the same day.

Clarin College, Athenry meet Heywood Community School, Laois in the Junior D semi-final at 12pm.  And St. Cuan’s College, Castleblakeney will hope to avenge their seniors defeat last week when they meet CNC Kilcormac in the Junior C penultimate stage at 1.30pm.

Galway Senior Camogie Team vs Offaly (Sunday, 12pm Pearse Stadium):

Shauna Burke; Emma Helebert, Sarah Dervan (C), Heather Cooney; Roisin Black, Shauna Healy, Lorraine Ryan; Ann Marie Starr, Finola Keely; Aoife Donohue, Rebecca Hennelly, Caitriona Cormican; Ailish O’Reilly, Niamh Haniffy, Carrie Dolan.
