THE Limerick senior hurling team to play Antrim in Sunday’s Allianz League shows four changes from the side that drew with Waterford last weekend.

Back into the team come Shane Dowling (after illness), James Ryan and Morrissey brothers Dan and Tom - all three were introduced as sub against Waterford in the Gaelic Grounds last Saturday.

The start will be a first for teenager Tom Morrissey, who joins 2014 Munster minor championship winner Cian Lynch in the attack.

Two of the changes were forced upon manager TJ Ryan and his selectors with Gavin O’Mahony returning to his club Kilmallock to prepare for their All Ireland club final and Niall Moran announcing his retirement.

The others departing the line-up are Cathal King and Patrick Begley.

Captain Donal O’Grady moves from wing back to centre forward.

Declan Hannon, David Breen, Kevin Downes and Seanie Tobin all miss out due to injury, while Kilmallock trio of O’Mahony, Paudie O’Brien and Graeme Mulcahy are club-tied.

LIMERICK; Nickie Quaid; Stephen Walsh, Richie McCarthy, Seamus Hickey; Tom Condon, Wayne McNamara, Dan Morrissey; Paul Browne, James Ryan; David Reidy; Donal O’Grady, Cian Lynch; Tom Morrissey, Shane Dowling, Adrian Breen.
