The Limerick U17s play Cork in the provincial semi final in Thurles at 7.30 this July 27 - the game will be streamed live by TG4.

Indeed five remain in situ in the starting line-up from the delayed 2020 All-Ireland semi final loss to Galway earlier this month - Tomas Lynch, Joe Fitzgerald, Vince Harrington, Cian Scully and Shane O'Brien. Two more Liam Denney and Con Hayes were also involved in the 2020 panel.
