Limerick boss John Kiely has named an unchanged starting 15 for Saturday’s All-Ireland SHC semi-final with Kilkenny at Croke Park.

Not surprisingly, Kiely has resisted any temptation to dig into his vast reserves, opting to select what has looked like his strongest available team all summer.

Kilkenny will announce their team on Friday but they've made changes in the recent past so it remains to be seen if Cillian Buckley will be restored after sitting out the Leinster final, having made his season comeback after injury in the drawn Wexford Park game.

Limerick (SH v Kilkenny): N Quaid; S Finn, M Casey, R English; D Byrnes, D Hannon, D Morrissey; C Lynch, W O'Donoghue; G Hegarty, K Hayes, T Morrissey; A Gillane, G Mulcahy, P Casey.
