Defending champions Dublin have named an unchanged side from the team that beat Monaghan for their All-Ireland SFC semi-final with Donegal.

The Ulster champions, who had an intensive five-day training camp in Johnstown House hotel in Meath last week and reportedly have a clean bill of health, are not expected to name a team until just before throw-in.

Mayo, like opponents Kerry, have named an unchanged team for today's semi-final replay in Limerick, even though Andy Moran and Tom Parsons made strong claims to start after replacing Alan Freeman and Jason Gibbons, who were late inclusions themselves before throw-in last week.

DUBLIN (SF v Donegal) - S Cluxton; M Fitzsimons, R O'Carroll, P McMahon; J McCarthy, J Cooper, N Devereux; MD Macauley, C O'Sullivan; P Flynn, K McManamon, D Connolly; A Brogan, E O'Gara, B Brogan.

MAYO (SF v Kerry)- R Hennelly; T Cunniffe, G Cafferkey, K Higgins; L Keegan, C Boyle, D Vaughan; J Gibbons, S O'Shea; K McLoughlin, A O'Shea, J Doherty; C O'Connor, A Freeman, A Dillon.
