LIMERICK captain Donal O'Grady will lead his troops into battle against Kilkenny in Sunday's All-Ireland SHC semi-final after recovering from the calf injury that forced him to miss their quarter-final victory over Wexford. Thomas Ryan is the man to lose out in an otherwise unchanged team.

Dublin have made two changes to the team that beat Meath in the Leinster final for tomorrow's All-Ireland SFC quarter-final against Monaghan. Fit-again Jonny Cooper returns to defence, with Jack McCaffrey losing out, while Eoghan O'Gara has been named at full-forward in place of Paul Mannion.

Monaghan manager Malachy O'Rourke has named the same team that started against Kildare last Saturday. Whether that team will actually line out against the Dubs remains to seen as O'Rourke often makes adjustments before throw-in.

He made three late changes last week, introducing Conor Boyle, Chris McGuinness and 20-year-old Thomas Kerr for Ryan Wylie, Stephen Gollogly and Dermot Malone.

Gollogly did well when he came off the bench but, with McGuinness top-scoring last Saturday, it is no surprise that he has retained his place.
