Daithi Burke will be unavailable to Corofin for Sunday's All-Ireland club SFC quarter-final against Fulham Irish in Ruislip.

The Galway All-Ireland winning hurling full back has opted instead to travel to Singapore for this year's All-Star hurling tour. Burke, a three-time All Star, was part of a 70-strong party that departed Dublin Airport earlier this week for the tour that will include an exhibition match tomorrow between 2016 and 2017 All-Star selections.

Burke's involvement with Corofin has been limited this year due to his hurling commitments. He came off the bench in their county final victory over Mountbellew/Moylough and also made substitute appearances against St. Brigid's and Castlebar Mitchels in the Connacht club SFC, scoring what proved to be the winning goal in extra-time against the former.

The back-to-back provincial winners will also be without experienced defender Ciaran McGrath due to a knee injury.
