There are returns to the starting side for Seán Finn and Cian Lynch, while the impressive Donnacha Ó Dálaigh gets a second start at this level. Ó Dálaigh, Tom Morrissey and Colin Coughlan are all listed to start having been introduced during last Sunday’s facile victory over Wexford.

There are previous five-star winners on an impressive looking subs bench. Kyle Hayes, Gearoid Hegarty and Seamus Flanagan are all likely to feature as Limerick chase a third league title under Kiely.
