Cork are monitoring the fitness of Mark Ellis and Tim O'Mahony ahead of Sunday week's Munster SHC final against Clare.

Ellis is troubled with a groin injury, while O'Mahony has a virus.

Cork boss John Meyler explained to the Irish Examiner: "We're looking at Mark Ellis at the moment, he didn't play against Waterford last Sunday and he's doubtful for the match against Clare.

"We'll monitor that situation over the next few days and we're hoping he'll be okay for the next day. We just have to monitor him, to see him come through this week so that he's ready for Sunday week.

"Tim O'Mahony didn't play in the U21 match Wednesday night against Waterford, he has a virus. Hopefully he'll be able to get back training - we have training on Saturday and hopefully he'll be able to participate in that."

Meyler also revealed that Robbie O'Flynn is back in contention for a starting place after recovering from a concussion he sustained against Clare in the first round of the round robin series.
