THE Limerick hurling team to play Carlow in Division 1B of the Allianz Hurling League in the Gaelic Grounds on Sunday shows five changes from the side that beat Antrim the last day out.
Na Piarsaigh duo Alan Dempsey and Cathal King make their debuts in defence while their clubmate David Breen is recalled to the forward line alongside Niall Moran and Sean Tobin.
Those to lose out are Stephen Walsh, Wayne McNamara, James Ryan, Shane Dowling and Kevin Downes. Nickey Quaid is still injured so Aaron Murphy deputises in goals once again.
The game throws in at 12.45pm and is a curtain raiser to the Allianz Football League Division 4 game between the same counties.
