LIMERICK have confirmed a 32-man panel for the 2021 Munster minor hurling championship.

Limerick play Cork in the Munster MHC semi final on Tuesday July 27 in Thurles at 7.30.

Limerick are the defending champions and face a Cork side who defeated Clare in the quarter final.

The prize on offer will be a Munster final spot against Tipperary or Waterford on August 9. Limerick are bidding to reach an eighth minor final in nine years.

Indeed a hat-trick of minor titles is on offer for the Limerick teenagers - a fate never accomplished by Limerick, who have one nine Munster MHC title ever.

This Limerick minor (U17) hurling team will be captained by Cian Scully with Joe Fitzgerald as vice-captain.

Both are survivors from last year's winning panel, along with Tomas Lynch, Vince Harrington, Shane O'Brien, Liam Dennehy and Con Hayes.

Limerick are under new management for 2021 - the manager is Kevin O'Hagan (Mungret St Pauls) with coach Ger Barry (Killeedy) and coach-selectors Liam Reale (Hospital-Herbertstown), Mark Keane (South Liberties) and Liam Hammersley (Cappamore).

The S&C coach is Darragh Droog (Mungret St Pauls) with goalkeeper coach Aaron Murphy (Hospital-Herbertstown).

LIMERICK: Mark Field, Joe Fitzgerald, Darragh Langan (all Monaleen); Pierce Connery and Shane O'Brien (both Kilmallock); Ewan Dillon and Ryan O'Neill (both Effin); David Fitzgerald and Ciaran McMahon (both Kildimo-Pallaskenry); Cian Scully and William Dore (both Dromin-Athlacca-Banogue); Vince Harrington and Wayne Kearns (both Na Piarsaigh); Con Hayes and John Whelan (both Newcastle West); Killian Quaid and Euan Sheridan (both Murroe-Boher); Tomas Lynch and Kevin Maher (both Doon); Killian Ahern (Blackrock), JJ Condon (Knockaderry), James Connolly (Staker Wallace), Liam Dennehy (Glenroe), Mike Fitzgibbon (Cappamore), Harry Fox (Hospital-Herbertstown), Mikey Gavin (Ballybrown), Paddy Kennedy (Garryspillane), Rian O'Byrne (Crecora-Manister), Cian O'Carroll (Croagh-Kilfinny), Michael O'Riordan (Bruff), Mark Riordan (Castletown-Ballyagran), Gavin Rowsome (Ahane).
