Gillane gets starting berth as Limerick show their hand for semi-final


Share this article


Limerick hurling manager John Kiely has made a pair of alterations to his starting XV for Saturday's All Ireland semi-final with Waterford.

Aaron Gillane is handed a start at corner-forward following his game-changing substitute appearance in the Munster final win over Tipperary.

A 30th minute substitute for Graeme Mulcahy, the Patrickswell man's four frees helped the reigning All Ireland champions wrestle control of the game.

Mulcahy is named among a stacked substitutes bench.

Kiely sticks by another of his first-half changes last month at Páirc Uí Chaoimh. Richie English was forced off injured in the Tipp game, replaced by Dan Morrissey. Morrissey has been entrusted with the full-back slot against the Deise.

English is fit enough for a place on the bench.
