CORK AND LIMERICK have named unchanged starting XVs for Sunday’s All-Ireland semi-final clash, but both panels have added fresh faces to the bench.

Mark Ellis returns from injury for the Rebels, who have also recruited Munster U21 winners Ger Collins and Billy Hennessy to their squad – the former due to an injury suffered by Cork sub keeper Patrick Collins.

Na Piarsaigh’s Kevin Downes is part of Limerick’s matchday squad for the first time this season, and he’ll be joined by Tom Condon who returns following his red card against Clare.

Throw-in at Croke Park on Sunday is at 3:30pm.
