Tom Morrissey will captain Limerick in place of Declan Hannon for Sunday's Allianz Hurling League Division 1 semi-final versus Dublin at Nowlan Park (throw-in 1.30pm).

With the Treaty County's Liam MacCarthy Cup winning skipper Hannon on the bench, Morrissey has been given the honour of captaining the side in Kilkenny.

Regular full-forward Seamus Flanagan will also have to make do with a place on the bench which is notable for the return of Na Piarsaigh defender Mike Casey following injury.

Limerick (Allianz HL v Dublin): Nickie Quaid; Tom Condon, Sean Finn, Richie English; Diarmaid Byrnes, Dan Morrissey, Paddy O’Loughlin; Cian Lynch, Darragh O’Donovan; Gearoid Hegarty, Kyle Hayes, Tom Morrissey; Aaron Gillane, Peter Casey, Graeme Mulcahy.

Subs: Barry Hennessy, Mike Casey, David Dempsey, Shane Dowling, Seamus Flanagan, Robbie Hanley, Declan Hannon, Barry Murphy, Barry Nash, William O’Meara, Colin Ryan.
