MANAGER John Kiely has announced his strongest selection of 2024 for Saturday evening’s National Hurling League tilt with Dublin at Croke Park, 5.15pm.

It’s a side that includes plenty of regulars who hadn’t started so far this season, including Nickie Quaid, Mike Quaid, Kyle Hayes, William O’Donoghue and Gearóid Hegarty.

Unbeaten from two starts, title-holders Limerick are comfortably expected to win at headquarters and move a step closer to qualification for the semi-finals.

Limerick: Nickie Quaid; Fergal O’Connor, Mike Casey, Barry Nash; Diarmaid Byrnes, David Reidy, Kyle Hayes; William O’Donoghue, captain, Darragh O’Donovan; Gearóid Hegarty, Cathal O’Neill, Conor Boylan; Donnacha Ó Dálaigh, Shane O’Brien, Adam English.
