Limerick have named a strong starting XV for their Division 1B opener against Cork in Páirc Uí Rinn tomorrow evening.
The biggest surprise comes at full-forward where Shane Dowling makes an immediate return to inter-county action.
The youngster had been involved with Na Piarsaigh up until last weekend when they were beaten in the AIB All-Ireland Club SHC semi-finals.
Cork named their side earlier this week, showing 10 of the side which started the All-Ireland final replay defeat against Clare last September.
Throw-in is at 7pm.
