THERE is one change to the Limerick minor hurling team to play Tipperary in the Munster Championship.

The make-or-break final round group game in the Munster SHC has a 12noon start in Thurles on Sunday and into the Limerick team comes Patrick O'Donovan for Diarmuid Hegarty.

There are also positional changes in the Limerick line-up for a game, where victory would see the Shannonsiders reach a sixth Munster final in seven years at minor level.

Ahead of the Sunday, the Limericks (U17) have beaten Clare and drawn with Cork and Waterford. They face a Tipperary side that beat Waterford and lost to Clare and Cork.
