Jimmy Barry-Murphy has made three changes to the Cork side that beat Wexford in the National League quarter-final for Sunday's meeting against Ger Cunningham's unchanged Dubs at Nowlan Park.

Alan Cadogan, Mark Ellis and Stephen McDonnell all come into the side for the Rebels with William Kearney, Killian Burke and Anthony Spillane relegated to the bench.

Dublin boss Ger Cunningham keeps fate with the Dublin XV that recorded a comfortable win over Limerick last time out.

In the other semi-final, Seamus Callanan keeps his place at corner-forward for Tipp after his red card was rescinded late last night.

Darren Gleeson and John O'Dwyer have recovered from recent injuries while Conor O’Brien and Shane McGrath replace injured duo Cathal Barrett and Kieran Bergin.

Derek McGrath makes two changes to his Waterford side from the Galway win, Stephen O’Keeffe replaces  Ian O’Regan, while Tom Devine comes in for Stephen Bennett.
