JOHN Galvin will make his first start of his 16th season for the Limerick senior footballers in Sunday’s National League game against Fermanagh.

The introduction of Galvin to midfield is one of five changes from the side which just snatched a last grasp victory over Wexford last weekend.

Sunday’s game now takes place in Newcastle West at 2.00 after the Gaelic Grounds was ruled out due to pitch damage due to the double-header last Sunday and the current weather conditions.

While John Galvin is returning to the team for another season, there is a first ever start for Ballysteen’s Danny Neville and Monaleen’s Colm Moran. Neville has seen league action this season as a sub but for Moran it will be a first ever competitive senior appearance for Limerick.

Also coming returning to the team are Pa Ranahan and Eoin Hanrahan, who both impressing as subs against Wexford.

Ranahan replaces John Riordan - who is absent as he plays with his club Templeglantine in the All Ireland JBHC final on Sunday.

Also out of the team are Lorcan O’Dwyer, Mark O’Riordan, Darragh Teacy and John Mullane.

LIMERICK - Donal O’Sullivan; Paudie Browne, Johnny McCarthy, Colm Moran; Iain Corbett, Stephne Lucey, Pa Ranahan; John Galvin, Tom Lee; Eoin Hanrahan, Micheal Brosnan, Seanie Buckley; Danny Neville, Ger Collins, Ian Ryan.
