WATCH: Two changes as Finn & O’Donovan return to Limerick’s starting 15

Limerick senior hurling manager John Kiely has made two changes to the Limerick side that will take on Kilkenny in the All Ireland quarter final this Sunday afternoon.

Sean Finn will come back in for Richie McCarthy while Darragh O’Donovan replaces William O’Donoghue. Aaron Gillane retains his place at corner forward with Shane Dowling is on the bench.

Limerick head into the game on the back of a straightforward win over Carlow while Kilkenny faced two energy sapping Leinster final clashes with Galway.

The treaty men are looking for their first win over the Cats since the 1973 All Ireland Final and know that they will have to be at their very best to get one over Brian Cody’s side.
