WATCH: Limerick name team for Munster Championship opener with Cork

Limerick senior hurling manager has made one change from the team that landed All-Ireland glory last August for Sunday’s Munster Championship opener against Cork at the LIT Gaelic Grounds.

Peter Casey coming in for Seamus Flanagan is the solitary switch on the starting 15. Casey comes in at corner forward, with Aaron Gillane moving to full forward.

Elsewhere, Nickie Quaid continues in goals, with Sean Finn, Mike Casey and Richie English in the full back line.

The solid half back line of Diarmaid Byrnes, Declan Hannon and Dan Morrissey remains in place, as does the duo of Cian Lynch and Darragh O’Donovan in midfield.
