Limerick senior hurling manager John Kiely has decided against any changes to the team from the Munster Final for this Saturday’s All-Ireland semi final with Kilkenny at Croke Park.
The Galbally clubman has kept faith with the 15 that saw off Tipperary by 2-26 to 2-14 at the LIT Gaelic Grounds on June 30.
Nickie Quaid is selected in goals, with Sean Finn, Mike Casey and Richie English named in front of him in the full back line.
Declan Hannon once again captains the team from centre back and will be flanked on either wing by Diarmaid Byrnes and Dan Morrissey.
Cian Lynch will again be partnered by William O’Donoghue in midfield, with Gearoid Hegarty, Kyle Hayes and Tom Morrissey named in the half forward line.
Aaron Gillane, Graeme Mulcahy and Peter Casey also keep their places in a very strong Limerick full forward line.
The game with Kilkenny has a 6pm throw in at Croke Park and will be refereed by Galway’s Alan Kelly. The game is live on RTÉ and Sky Sports.
