David Treacy has been ruled out of the Dublin team for their crucial Allianz NHL Division 1 clash with Limerick at Parnell Park tomorrow (throw-in 2.30pm).

The Cuala forward has failed to recover from a hamstring injury picked up in training last week.

Paul Ryan will replace Treacy in the Dublin attack and has been named at right half-forward with Liam Rushe moving to full-forward.

With Tomas Brady unavailable due to suspension - he was red carded against Galway - Ronan Fallon will start at centre-back with skipper Stephen Hiney moving to full-back.

Anthony Daly's men must at least get a draw from this game as if they lose to Limerick, they will be relegated on the head-to-head rule.

DUBLIN (NHL v Limerick): Gary Maguire; Niall Corcoran, Stephen Hiney (capt), Oisín Gough; Joey Boland, Ronan Fallon, Maurice O'Brien; Johnny McCaffrey, Shane Durkin; Paul Ryan, Peter Kelly, Simon Lambert; David O'Callaghan, Liam Rushe, Alan McCrabbe.
