Barrett included in Tipp team to face Limerick in Munster decider
The defender limped off against the same opposition two weeks ago.

CATHAL BARRETT HAS been included in Liam Sheedy’s starting Tipperary team to face Limerick at the Gaelic Grounds in Sunday’s Munster Senior hurling final (throw-in 2pm).

The Holycross-Ballycahill man has been named to line out at right corner-back, while Dan McCormack replaces the injured Patrick ‘Bonner’ Maher in the Premier half-forward line.
