LIMERICK HAVE NAMED their team to start against Clare in Sunday’s Munster senior hurling quarter-final in Thurles.

Barry Hennessy, Seanie O’Brien and Cian Lynch are all handed championship debuts.

Manager TJ Ryan has given Hennessy his chance in goal in light of the vacancy created by Nicky Quaid’s absence through injury.

O’Brien, who has caught the eye for Limerick IT in the Fitzgibbon Cup, is named at left half-back and his Patrickswell club mate Cian Lynch, the captain of last year’s Limerick minor team that qualified for the All-Ireland final will start at corner-forward.
