Limerick name three debutants for Munster championship clash with Clare

Meanwhile, the Banner have made one change from the side who overcame Kildare to win the Division 3 final last month.

LIMERICK MANAGER JOHN Brudair has named three debutants in his starting 15 for Sunday’s Munster SFC quarter-final against Clare at the Gaelic Grounds (2pm).

Paul White has been selected in the half-back line while Garrett Noonan and Brian Donovan will line out in the forwards for the Treaty men.

Star forward Ian Ryan will captain the side with Iain Corbett missing due to injury.

Brudair has made three changes from the side that lost to Offaly in Division 3 of the league last time out — White, O’Donovan and Seanie Buckley coming into the side in place of Michael Donovan, Cillian Fahy and Corbett.

Clare, meanwhile, have made one change from their side that overcame Kildare to win the Division 3 title in Croke Park at the end of last month.

Gordon Kelly comes into the side at centre-back with his St Joseph’s Milltown club-mate Sean Malone making way.

There is no space in the starting 15 for dual star Podge Collins although he is expected to feature on the bench, which has yet to be named.
