Tipperary boss Liam Sheedy has added Pa Bourke and Ryan O'Dwyer to his squad.

The addition of the pair will increase Sheedy's attacking options as he prepares for the All-Ireland SH qualifier against Wexford in Semple Stadium on July 3.

Bourke was one of six players dropped from Sheedy's squad in April, but impressive club form with Thurles Sars has earned him a recall. Dual player O'Dwyer has previously been part of the hurling squad, but did not feature last season.

Opponents Wexford will be without captain Diarmuid Lyng for the game after he failed in his appeal to the GAA Central Hearings Committee to overturn the four-week ban he received for his dismissal in their Leinster SHC quarter-final defeat to Galway.
