Limerick name unchanged fifteen for All Ireland U21 Final

Pat Donnelly has named the same starting fifteen that overcame Galway last time out to take on Kilkenny in the All Ireland U21 Hurling Championship Final.

Following the last round of senior club fixtures there were fitness doubts over Dan Joy and Cian Lynch but both have been selected in the starting lineup.

Limerick: 1 Eoghan McNamara (Doon), 2 Sean Finn (Bruff), 3 Darragh Fanning (Pallasgreen), 4 Dan Joy (Kilmallock), 5 Ronan Lynch (Na Piarsaigh), 6 Kyle Hayes (Kildimo/Pallaskenry), 7 Thomas Grimes (Na Piarsaigh), 8 Colin Ryan (Pallasgreen), 9 Robbie Hanley (Kilmallock), 10 Aaron Gillane (Patrickswell), 11 Barry Murphy (Doon), 12 Cian Lynch (Patrickswell), 13 Peter Casey (Na Piarsaigh), 14 Tom Morrissey (Ahane)(Captain), 15 Barry Nash (South Liberties).

Kilkenny have also named their team with Eddie Brennan’s side looking to claim a first U21 crown since 2008. The sides are familiar foes as Kilkenny have 8 survivors from the 2014 All Ireland Minor Final while Limerick have 10.
