Ahead of Sunday's All-Ireland final clash against Galway in Croke Park, John Kiely has named the starting Limerick XV charged with bringing home the county's first championship since 1973.
After their extra-time defeat of Cork in the All-Ireland semi-final, Kiely has trusted in the same players that started that day to begin Sunday's final.
With many suspecting that Limerick's bench could be of essential importance if they wish to halt Galway's two-in-a-row bid, Kiely will be hopeful that the likes of Shane Dowling will play a vital role in Sunday's final.
