Kilkenny make five changes for the Division One A visit of Dublin in Sunday’s last round of regulation matches in the Allianz Hurling League.

Captain Shane Prendergast drops to the bench with Brian Kennedy taking over at left corner back.

Conor Fogarty is still injured after last week’s match against Cork and Lester Ryan continues as his replacement. Colin Fennelly is also injured whereas Conor Martin and Kevin Kelly, who started in Páirc Uí Rinn, are named on the bench. Into the team come James Maher, Jonjo Farrell and John Power.

Cork, who gave their best display of the season when narrowly losing to Kilkenny, make just one changes. Damien Cahalane is replaced by Conor O’Sullivan. On the bench a couple of forwards are available again. Patrick Cronin and Alan Cadogan, who was suspended for last week’s match, are both named.

Tipperary give James Barry his first start at full back during the league campaign. He comes in for Tomás Hamill who drops to the bench. Also replaced are the injured Michael Cahill, Kieran Bergin and Dan McCormack with Conor O’Brien, John O’Dwyer, who started on the bench last week, and debutant Kieran Morris.

Séamus Callanan, named on the bench, has yet to play this season.

Limerick bring in goalkeeper Nickie Quaid, Richie English, Dan Morrrissey, Cian Lynch and Declan Hannon for the vital match in Ennis on Sunday. Whoever wins between Clare and Limerick will be promoted to next season’s Division One A.
