TOM Condon is the only Limerick injury concern ahead of Sunday's Munster SHC tie with Cork in the LIT Gaelic Grounds.

This Tuesday evening manager John Kiely addressed media before team training at the Ennis Road stadium.

"Tom Condon has a bit of a groin strain but that is all we got and it's great," said Kiely.

Limerick will of course be without cruciate ligament injured Richie McCarthy for the entire Munster Championship but are bolstered by the return to full training of Paul Browne and William O'Donoghue, who both missed the entire Allianz League before returning to action during the April club championship games.

"We are in good shape - we have had a really clean run of things. Hopefully we will come clean through tonight and that's us out the gap at that stage," he said ahead of leading Limerick into a third championship as manager.

"We have been very fortunate (with injuries) and that is testament to the work that Joe O'Connor has done with them off the pitch during the last four years that he has been involved. Their bodies are strong in that respect and we don't get soft tissue injuries very often. The injury prevention over the last few Winters has been very effective," outlined the manager.

Limerick's team to face Cork will be announced at 9pm on Friday with a number of tight decisions for Kiely and his selectors.

"I said to the players last Sunday that they have given us a really challenging task of not only picking the team but to pick the matchday 26 as well, which is brilliant."
