Limerick name minor hurling team for Clare clash | TEAM NEWS

Diarmuid Hurley is named at 14, joined by Danny Sheehan and Malachy McKenna in the inside-forward line.

Limerick Minor hurling manager Shane Dowling has named his side to take on Clare in their second game of the Electric Ireland Munster Minor Hurling Championship on Thursday evening.

The tie is scheduled to start at 7pm in Sixmilebridge, with Limerick needing a win to keep any hope of a Munster final alive, having lost to Cork last time out.

Clare enjoyed a comfortable win over Waterford in their most recent game, winning 0-22 : 0-13.

Dowling has made just one change to the side that lost to Cork, with Castletown/Ballyagran man Paul Murphy coming in at wing-back for Gearoid Enright. He joins a shuffled half-back line, that sees Eoin Brosnan switch to six, Gavin Dorgan taking his spot on the flank.

Cathal Dennehy is set to start in goal, with Daithi Dennehy just ahead at full-back. He is joined by Ahane’s Dennis Blackwell and Adare’s Conor Ryan in the full-back line.

Brosnan starts at six, flanked by Dorgan and the incoming Murphy.

Liam O’Connor partners joint-captain Jack Cosgrave in midfield, with Eoghan Maher named just ahead at centre-forward.

The Monaleen man is supported by Patrick Kearney and Patrick Cagney, who is the only Feohanagh/Castlemahon representative in the match day squad.

Diarmuid Hurley is named at full-forward, joined by Danny Sheehan and Malachy McKenna in the inside-forward line.
