Limerick's Iain Corbett who returns to centre back this evening

Billy Lee has named his side to take on Mayo in today's All Ireland football qualifier at the Gaelic Grounds. (6pm throw in) There are three changes to the side that lost to Clare in the Munster championship.

David Connolly, Pat Begley and Gordan Browne all drop out of the side as Iain Corbett, Josh Ryan and Jim Liston come into the starting XV. 

Iain Corbett is set to start at centre back for Limerick having recently returned from overseas duty with the Irish army. The side is captained by Donal O'Sullivan from Monaleen and sees Josh Ryan named at full forward and Jim Liston named at half forward to take on last season's beaten All Ireland finalists. 

Mayo are 1/50 to win this tie, but Limerick manager Billy Lee has asked his side to 'enjoy the experience' See here for Lee's full thoughts on the game.
