LIMERICK MANAGER JOHN Kiely has kept the changes to a minimum ahead of Sunday’s Munster SHC final in Thurles [throw-in 4pm].

David Reidy comes into the team with Darragh O’Donovan dropping out, in the only change to the side that saw off Tipperary in the semi-final.

Having made his debut in 2015, Reidy has lined out for his county 10 times in championship action but this comes as his first start having impressed off the bench in recent weeks.

The 28-year-old Dromin-Athlacca man comes into the side at centre half-forward, while Richie English is named among the substitutes as Limerick look to retain the Munster title for the first time since 1981.

Meanwhile, Déise boss Liam Cahill has unveiled an unchanged Waterford team after they beat Cork in the last four. Mount Sion star Austin Gleeson is down to start at full-forward, but anything could happen come throw-in on Sunday.
