Six Limerick representatives named to face Ulster in Junior Interpro clash

Four Limerick clubs are represented in the Munster team to play Ulster in the opening round of the 2017/18 Interprovincial Series this Saturday.

The side is captained from the second row by Galbally’s Brendan Childs, Munster’s Player of the Series last year. His club mate, Oisin Walsh is named in the back-row.

Meanwhile, Derry O’Connor from Abbeyfeale starts at full-back while Newcastlewest’s Sean Herlihy is named at scrum-half.
