Here's the Limerick minor team aiming to reach first Munster final in 18 years
There’s one change to the side that saw off Waterford in the play-offs.

LIMERICK’S MINOR FOOTBALLERS are hoping to reach their first Electric Ireland Munster final in almost 20 years when they tackle Cork on Thursday evening.

Limerick’s last final appearance was back in 1998, and they haven’t won the provincial title in this grade since their one and only victory in 1956.

But hopes are high on Shannonside that this crop of players can do something special.

Having started their campaign with a narrow loss to Clare, Limerick then shocked last year’s Munster and All-Ireland finalists Tipperary, before defeating Waterford by eight points.

On the form we’ve seen from both counties to date, Limerick will travel to Cork tomorrow evening with a fair degree of optimism.

There’s one change to the team that started against Waterford, as Jason Kiely comes in for Conor O’Grady in attack.

Throw in at Páirc Uí Rinn is at 7pm.
