Two Limerick stars included in GAA hurling TOTW.

Diarmuid Byrnes and Aaron Gillane have been named in the GAA.ie hurling team of the week following their performances in Saturday’s All Ireland preliminary quarter-final win over Carlow.

Gillane turned in a top attacking display hitting 1-6 (0-2 from frees) on his return to the starting fifteen while Byrnes rounded off a composed defensive display with a goal in the 65th minute.

Limerick powered passed Carlow at Dr Cullen Park to set up an All Ireland quarter final clash with Kilkenny next weekend.

Players may be picked in positions they may not have been selected in for the match programme.
