MANAGERS JOHN KIELY and Kieran Kingston have both shuffled their packs as Limerick and Cork get set to face off in tomorrow’s Co-Op Superstores Munster hurling league final.

Fitzgibbon Cup commitments rule out players on both sides with the respective managers afforded the chance to recall some experienced figures to their team.

From the Limerick side that defeated Clare in Sixmilebridge last Sunday, Kiely has brought in the defensive pair of Richie English and Diarmuid Byrnes, midfielder Cian Lynch – who will captain the side – and the attacking pair of David Dempsey and Graeme Mulcahy.

Cork booked their spot in the decider with a victory over Waterford with Colm Spillane, Eoin Cadogan, Sean O’Donoghue and Seamus Harnedy all returning to start here. Spillane endured a campaign wrecked by injury in 2019 but made his comeback on Tuesday night for Cork in the Canon O’Brien Cup and will get further gametime in this clash.
