Jimmy Lee announces squad for Munster Championship opener | TEAM NEWS

Limerick lost back to finals in 2009 and 2010, as well as in 2003 and 2004. They have never won the championship, and are priced at 150/1 to win it this year.

Limerick football boss Jimmy Lee has named his starting XV as his side prepare to take on Cork in the quarter-final of the Munster Championship this Sunday.

The action is set to kick off at 2pm in SuperValu Pairc Ui Chaoimh, with the Shannonsiders still in search of their first victory of 2024.

Lee’s men fell to defeats to Antrim, Sligo, Down, Westmeath, Clare, Wicklow and Offaly as they were relegated to Division 4 of the Allianz League.

This Sunday, Cillian Fahy captains the side from centre-back with Iain Corbett not named in the squad.

Josh Ryan is set to start in goal while Darren O’Doherty, Sean O’Dea and Brian O’Sullivan complete the full-backline in front of him.

Captain Fahy starts at centre-back, with Cormac Woulfe and Paul Maher either side of him. Tommy Childs partners Emmet Rigter in midfield.

James Naughton is named at half-forward, lining out alongside Cathal Downes and Bryan Nix, while Peter Nash and Danny Neville complete a full-forward line that sees Robbie Childs named at 14.

Limerick’s reward for getting over the Rebels would be a semi-final meeting with Kerry, who are overwhelming favourites for the championship at 1/14.

The Kingdom have won the last three Munster titles in a row, beating Limerick in 2022 in Fitzgerald Stadium. Kerry have been involved in 10 of the last 11 Munster finals, winning them all.

Limerick lost back to finals in 2009 and 2010, as well as in 2003 and 2004. They have never won the championship, and are priced at 150/1 to win it this year.
