JOHN KIELY HAS made two changes to his side for Saturday’s meeting with Kilkenny in the All-Ireland senior hurling qualifiers at Nowlan Park (7.00pm).

The Limerick senior hurling boss will start Darragh O’Donovan in midfield instead of James Ryan, while Gearoid Hegarty gets the nod in attack ahead of Graeme Mulcahy.
