Tipperary have recalled goalkeeper Darren Gleeson and corner-back Michael Cahill for Sunday's All Ireland semi-final with Galway.

Gleeson is back in goal for the clash with the Tribesmen, replacing Daragh Mooney, while the experienced Cahill gets the nod in a reshuffled full-back line.

Tomás Hamill drops out of the team that started against Clare, with James Barry moving across to full-back to accommodate Cahill's return in the left corner.

Galway have made one change in attack, with fit-again Cathal Mannion replacing Jason Flynn.

Mayo have named an unchanged team, with Lee Keegan due to start at midfield.
