Limerick wield axe

Shane Dowling and Kevin Downes are surprise omissions from the Limerick team to face Tipperary in Sunday's Munster SHC showdown.

Dowling and Downes are two of the promising generation who are injecting so much hope into the county, but with Seamus Hickey retaining his place from the Division 1B league final and Seanie Tobin recalled, they both lose out.

Declan Hannon is the only current U-21 player selected and will play at full- forward. Captain Donal O'Grady also returns to midfield, one of two changes from the league final.

Tipperary will name their team tomorrow night with the possibility that Lar Corbett will be on the bench.

Limerick (SH v Tipperary) – N Quaid; S Walsh, R McCarthy, T Condon; P O'Brien, W McNamara, G O'Mahony; P Browne, D O'Grady; D Breen, J Ryan, S Hickey; G Mulcahy, D Hannon, S Tobin.
