Kevin Martin names Offaly team to play Limerick

Kevin Martin, Damien Fox, Aidan Hanrahan and Cathal Murphy have selected their Offaly team to play Limerick in the 2nd Round of the Allianz National Hurling League on Sunday, February 4 at 2pm in Bord na Mona O'Connor Park.

Offaly hurling is on a high after Martin's charges made light work of Dublin in their first league game last weekend. 

That 13-point win in Croke Park has buoyed confidence that Offaly can challenge Limerick who will be missing some of their stars due to continued club involvement. 

The top performers from last week return with Oisin Kelly once more cutting an imposing figure in the full forward line, and Dermot Shortt maintaining his role at wing back.

Shane Kinsella continues alongside David King in midfield, while veteran and Kilcormac-Killoughey captain Dan Currams is named in the half forward line.
