Limerick face Cork in inaugural U17 hurling Competition tonight

 

After the minor hurlers narrowly lost out to an impressive Tipperary side last Wednesday evening, attention now turns to the Munster u17 Hurling Competition. This is the first year of the competition as from 2018, the minor grade will change from u18 to u17.

The tournament is being played this year as to give a chance to those who miss out on the opportunity to represent Limerick due to a change in the age structure.

Limerick manager Dave Cuddy has named a strong 24 man panel for the game against Cork this evening. The panel consists of players from no less than 17 clubs.

However, Cuddy will have to plan without any players that featured against Tipperary last week. This means players such as Dylan O’Shea, who scored 2-2 in the minor game will not feature for Limerick. yet, this gives more players the opportunity to make a name for themselves.

The game against Cork has a 7pm throw in on Tuesday evening in the Gaelic Grounds.

Limerick team to face Cork:

LIMERICK: Louis Dee (Mungret/St Pauls); Liam Griffin (Kildimo/Pallaskenry), David Mulqueen (Bruff), Paul Power (Monaleen); Sean Long (Na Piarsaigh); Paudie O Connor (Kilmallock), Josh Considine (Patrickswell); Seanie O Connor (Granagh/Ballingarry), Liam Barry (Na Piarsaigh); Sean O’Leary (Dromin/Athlacca), Shaun Barry (Kildimo/Pallaskenry), James O Brien (Croagh/Kilfinny); Calum Sheehan (Garryspillane), Frank Costello (Adare), Mark McCarthy (Templeglantine).
