Limerick host Cork City in their Airtricity League clash at Thomond Park this afternoon, and the match, which marks Limerick’s return to top-flight action after 19 years, will be broadcast live on RTÉ Two.

It will also be Stuart Taylor’s first competitive game in charge of the home side, but he must operate without Pat Purcell and Shaun Kelly, both of whom are suspended, while Jeffrey Judge is still recovering from suspension.

Tommy Dunne’s Cork City, whose pre-season form included a semi-final spot in the Setanta Sports Cup, have just two players unavailable.

Brian Lenihan is a long-term absentee with a groin injury, while John Dunleavy will miss today’s game.

Kalen Spillane returns after a suspension picked up in the Setanta Cup, while Colin Healy, Dan Murray and Darren Dennehy, all of whom missed their latest clash against Crusaders, are available once more.

The match is due to kick off at 5.15pm.
