Limerick travel to Cork with place in Munster U20 Football Final on offer

The XV for Cork does have two personnel changes to the team that beat Waterford with Diarmuid Ryan and Ciaran O’Sullivan come in from the start.

Limerick will seek a first Munster U20 Football Final berth since 2005 this evening when they travel to Pairc Ui Chaoimh to take on Cork in the provincial semi-final.

Throw in is at 7pm with the sides meeting for the second successive season at the same stage. Last year, Cork were comfortable 2-15 to 0-5 winners in Ballyagran.

They would go on to lose to Kerry in the provincial final but the trip to the decider was enough to secure safe passage directly into this year’s semi-finals.

Limerick on the other hand had to navigate a quarter-final with Waterford where goals from David O’Shaughnessy and Aaron Neville helped see off a spirited Deise outfit last Monday.

Both O’Shaughnessy and Neville were named from the start in the meeting of the sides twelve months ago with Shane Kelly’s side for this evening’s clash containing five of the last year’s XV. Eoin McGrath, Darragh Murray and Emmet Rigter were all also named in the starting side for the 2022 outing.

The XV for Cork does have two personnel changes to the team that beat Waterford. Diarmuid Ryan and Ciaran O’Sullivan come in from the start with Sean Ryan and Tommy Ryan dropping to the bench.

Cork will be looking to win back the title they relinquished to Kerry last year while Limerick have never won at the U20 grade, their only ever U21 success coming back in 2000.

Kelly’s team will be big outsiders to move into the final for the first time since 2005 but will have had the advantage of the Deise game under their belt. Still, it looks like a tall order with the 20s season on the line with no back door system in operation at the grade.

The game will be streamed live on TG4 YouTube.
