CLARE HAVE KEPT faith with the same XV who beat Galway in the All-Ireland hurling championship quarter finals.
Davy Fitzgerald and his selectors have decided to follow Limerick’s lead and not mess with the winning formula that saw them into the last four.
Unlike Limerick, the Clare management had no real injury concerns ahead of the game so that Fitzgerald and his fellow selectors have stuck with their mix of youth and experience is no real surprise.
The semi final in Croke Park throws in Sunday at 3.30pm with the winners to face Cork.
Clare (SH v Limerick): Patrick Kelly (Inagh-Kilnamona); Domhnall O’Donovan (Clonlara), David McInerney (Tulla), Cian Dillon (Crusheen); Brendan Bugler (Whitegate), Patrick Donnellan (O’Callaghan Mills), Patrick O’Connor (Tubber); Colm Galvin (Clonlara), Conor Ryan (Cratloe); John Conlon (Clonlara), Tony Kelly (Ballyea), Colin Ryan (Newmarket-on-Fergus); Pádraic Collins (Cratloe), Darach Honan (Clonlara), Conor McGrath (Cratloe).
