Two Limerick stars included in GAA hurling TOTW

Diarmuid Byrnes and Aaron Gillane have been named in the GAA.ie hurling team of the week following their performances in Saturday’s All Ireland preliminary quarter-final win over Carlow.

Gillane turned in a top attacking display hitting 1-6 (0-2 from frees) on his return to the starting fifteen while Byrnes rounded off a composed defensive display with a goal in the 65th minute.
