WATCH: Kiely Makes Two Changes for Waterford Clash


John Kiely has made two changes for this Sunday’s crucial Munster Hurling championship game against Waterford.

After defeat to Cork, Limerick need a result from this game if they are to have any chance to progress to the All-Ireland series.

Into the team comes Paddy O’Loughlin in the place of Diarmuid Byrnes. O’Loughlin, who will be making his debut, replaces Byrnes who started each of Limerick’s games in the championship last year on way to the All-Ireland triumph.

The other change comes in midfield with Darragh O’Donovan moving to the bench with William O’Donoghue starting in his place.

Onto the subs bench come Aaron Costello, Paul Browne, Tom Condon and Pat Ryan who didn’t make the matchday squad last time out.
