QUIZ | Can you name the players that started in Limerick’s Last Five U21 All-Ireland Finals?

Limerick take on Kilkenny in the U20 All-Ireland final this Sunday.

The start of the current millennium brought with it the all conquering Limerick who U21 sides who claimed three successive All-Ireland titles that seemed to usher in a new age for Limerick hurling.

However, while an All-Ireland senior final was reached five years after the last success, they weren’t able to get over the line in the Liam MacCarthy race.

It was not until the crop of 2015 and ’17 who won two titles in three years that Limerick were backboned by an underage side that eventually ended the All-Ireland famine as John Kiely, who led the ’15 U21 side, managed the senior team to senior honours in 2018.

This Sunday, Diarmuid Mullins will look to emulate Kiely and most recently Pat Donnelly by leading the Limerick U20s to All-Ireland honours as they take on Kilkenny in FBD Semple Stadium on Sunday.

Ahead of that game, we want to test your knowledge of the five sides who claimed U21 titles for Limerick this century by naming the starting XVs from the 2000, ’01, ’02, ’15 and ’17 games.

There are four men who claimed three titles while 39 different players in total have won a championship with Limerick since 2000.

See how you get on below.
