LIMERICK HURLING MANAGER John Kiely has named an unchanged starting side for their All-Ireland senior hurling championship final against Galway on Sunday (throw-in 3.30pm, live on RTÉ / Sky Sports).

The same fifteen who started against Cork in their thrilling semi-final are due to take to the field at Croke Park as they face the reigning champions.

This means there’s no room for Shane Dowling, who was sprung from the bench to hit 1-4 the last day, while fellow extra-time goal-scorer Pat Ryan is also named among the subs.

Sunday comes as the Shannonsiders’ first All-Ireland final appearance since 2007 and they’re bidding for a first title since 1973.
