LIMERICK MANAGER LEO O’Connor has named an unchanged team for Sunday’s Electric Ireland Munster minor hurling final against Tipperary.

O’Connor has kept faith with the starting 15 that narrowly saw off Cork in a dramatic semi-final at the Gaelic Grounds.

Meanwhile, Tipperary boss Liam Cahill has made two changes to the side that beat Clare by four points.

The Kiruane MacDonaghs pair of Cian Darcy and Darragh Peters come in at right half-forward and left half-back respectively, the injured Stephen Quirke the one to miss out in attack.

With Peters pulling on his customary number seven shirt, Kevin Hassett who started in his place in the semi-final, switches to the right side for Sunday’s encounter at Semple Stadium.

Throw-in is at 2pm.
