John Greene and Alan Callanan, both of whom came on in that game, etain their places at centre and left half forward, respectively, with Francis Kerrigan and Shane Howley dropping to the bench.
The selectors have also made two positional changes.
Kevin Coen, who played at right half forward in the semi-final, moves out to partner Andrew Keary at midfield, while Sean Glynn moves from centre-forward to right half forward.
Limerick and Galway last met in the minor final back in 1958 and, on that occasion, victory went to the Shannonsiders.
Galway are the defending champions and have won the title six times while Limerick have won three, the last in centenary year (1984) when they beat Kilkenny in a replay in Thurles.
