WATCH – Limerick name side for first All Ireland final in eleven years

Limerick unchanged for All Ireland final.

John Kiely has named the same starting 15 from the semi-final win over Cork for this Sunday’s decider at Croke Park.

Limerick have also stuck with the exact same match day 26 for their encounter with reigning All Ireland champions Galway.

The likes of Shane Dowling and Pat Ryan who made a massive impact off the bench in the extra-time win over the rebels will have to be satisfied with trying to do the same again in this weekend’s showpiece.

Sunday will be a first All Ireland final appearance since 2007 for the treaty who are hoping to bring the Liam MacCarthy Cup back to the county for the first time since 1973.
