QUIZ | Name the players who started in Limerick’s last five U21 All-Ireland finals

Adam English, Patrick Reale, Brian O'Meara and Ethan Hurley celebrate Limerick's Munster Final win over Tipperary in the under-20 championship.

Limerick take on Kilkenny in the Under-20 All-Ireland final this Sunday.

The start of the current millennium brought with it the all conquering Limerick U21 sides who claimed three successive All-Ireland titles that seemed to usher in a new age for Limerick hurling.

However, while an All-Ireland senior final was reached five years after the last success, they weren’t able to get over the line in the Liam MacCarthy race.

It was not until the crop of 2015 and ’17 who won two titles in three years that Limerick were backboned by an underage side that eventually ended the All-Ireland famine as John Kiely, who led the ’15 U21 side, managed the senior team to senior honours in 2018.

This Sunday, Diarmuid Mullins will look to emulate Kiely and most recently Pat Donnelly by leading the Limerick U20s to All-Ireland honours as they take on Kilkenny in FBD Semple Stadium on Sunday.
