Two U20 All-Ireland winners from last year, Paddy Cadell and Bryan O’Mara, get the nod, as does 2018 U21 All-Ireland winner Mark Kehoe.

TIPPERARY HAVE NAMED three league debutants in their team to face champions Limerick in Thurles on Saturday (5:15pm).

Liam Sheedy has selected 2019 All-Ireland U20 winner Paddy Caddell in his midfield alongside Michael Breen while Bryan O’Mara, who also starred in The Premier’s U20s last year, starts in the half-forward line.

Mark Kehoe makes his league bow at corner-forward. The Kilsheelan-Kilcash man featured for Tipp during last year’s championship having won an All-Ireland U21 medal a year prior.

Tipp are shorn of panel members who were involved in last weekend’s All-Ireland club final, while 2019 Hurler of the Year Seamus Callanan will begin his Saturday evening on the bench and John ‘Bubbles’ O’Dwyer misses out altogether.
