Limerick have named an unchanged team for their All Ireland Hurling Final clash with Kilkenny this weekend.
It means there’s no place on the panel for injured captain Declan Hannon.
Will O’Donoghue started at centre-back for the win over Galway and retains his place in the half-back line alongside Diarmuid Byrnes and Kyle Hayes.
The side also contains 12 of the players that started last year’s final victory over the Cats.
On the Kilkenny side of things, manager Derek Lyng has opted against changing the side that came through a tough semi-final win over Clare two weeks ago.
Kilkennys team contains 11 of the players that started last year’s final loss to the Treaty County.
