The Limerick footballers will be looking for their second win in the National Football League Division 3 when they take on Tipperary in Thurles at 2pm today.

The game will now actually go ahead in Semple Stadium after all after it was initially switched to Templetuohy - from Thurles - because of expected frost. But that decision has been reversed and Limerick will be looking to keep up their winning start following on from last weekend’s win over Sligo.

Limerick manager John Brudair has named an unchanged side while Tipp have made one change - Donagh Leahy replaces the suspended Robbie Kiely at wing-back. Tipp were unlucky to lose to Armagh in the opening round last week, conceding two late points to go down by the narrowest of margins.
