The Rockies are fare from the only club with new personnel.

Also new to the grade are Dromin-Athlacca - 2018 Limerick IHC winners.
They continue with clubman Mark Moynihan as manager.
Bruff were beat by the TJ Ryan managed Garrysillane in the county final of this championship last October. Bruff continue with largely the same management - managed by clubman Dan Moloney (manager) and coached by John Hadnett from Dundrum. A selector is 2017 Limerick minor hurling manager John Mulqueen.
Mungret lost out at the semi final stage last year. 2018 manager Diarmuid Mullins is now the Limerick minor hurling manager. Mungret have clubman Gerry O'Brien now as manager with Denis Barry as coach and the experienced Liam O'Donoghue as selector.
