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.
