Preview: Laois v Limerick
Saturday January 27
Allianz Football League Division Four
Laois v Limerick, O'Moore Park, 7pm
Limerick have been disrupted by the retirements of the long serving Johnny McCarthy and Seanie Buckley.
McCarthy and Buckley are exactly the type of players and required to face a Laois outfit that has surprisingly dropped into the bottom tier. There is still decent talent at new manager John Sugrue's disposal.
LAOIS: Graham Brody; David Holland, Shane Nerney, Ruaidhri Fennell; Trevor Collins, Stephen Attride, Finbarr Crowley; John O'Loughlin, Daniel O'Reilly; Alan Farrell, Paul Kingston, Brian Glynn; Eoin Lowry, Gary Walsh, Aaron Dowling.
LIMERICK: Donal O'Sullivan; Gareth Noonan, Sean O'Dea, David Connolly; Paul White, Cillian Fahy, Jim Liston; Darragh Treacy, Brian Fanning; Daniel Daly, Peter Nash, Danny Neville; Tony McCarthy, Padraig Scanlon, James Lee.
