The inaugural Munster U25 Championship kicks off this Sunday as a curtain raiser for the senior clash between Clare and Limerick.
The U25 competition replaces the Intermediate championship and pits Limerick against Clare with throw in at 2pm.
The management team consists of manager Pat Donnelly (South Liberties), coach-selectors: Mikey Kiely (Ballybrown), Brian Foley (Adare) and Maurice O’Brien (Garryspillane) with strength and conditioning coach Eoin O’Donnell (Rathkeale).
The squad is the extended U21 panel without the 9 U21s who are part of the senior set up.
Cork and Tipperary have resisted entering squads so the winner of this clash will play Waterford in the Munster final.
The 30 man squad is captained by Na Piarsaigh’s Thomas Grimes, while there will be a number of the panel missing this weekend as they sit their Leaving Cert in the coming weeks.
U-25 PANEL: Eoghan McNamara and Barry Murphy (both Doon), Cian Hedderman, Josh Adams, Luke Doran (all Ballybrown), Paudie Ahern and Cian Magner Flynn (both Killeedy), Jack Cagney (Granagh-Ballingarry), Darragh Carroll (Newport, Tipperary), Kyle Dillion (Bruff), Darragh Fanning (Pallasgreen), Seamus Flanagan (Feohanagh), Thomas Grimes and Conor Boylan (both Na Piarsaigh); Robbie Hanley, Dan Joy, Oisin O’Reilly (all Kilmallock); Sean Hogan, Mike Mackey, Eoin Ryan (all Adare), Andrew La Touche Cosgrave and Lorcan Lyons (both Monaleen), Conor McSweeney and Brian Ryan (both South Liberties); Cian O’Brien (Mungret St Pauls), Jack O’Grady (Knockainey), Darragh Cotter (Castletown-Ballyagran), Willie O’Meara (Askeaton), Finn Hourigan (Murroe-Boher), Conor O’Grady (Hospital-Herbertstown)
