Players from 10 different counties have been selected on the 24-man panel for this Saturday’s Inter-Provincial football semi-final against Munster.

Leinster football manager Sean Kelly and his selectors Johnny Doyle from Kildare and Vinny Claffey from Offaly were unable to access the Dublin squad who are currently away on their All-Ireland winners’ holiday.

But Royal County native Kelly has still assembled an experienced squad of players and boasts some quality talent. John Heslin (Westmeath), Donie Kingston (Laois), Graham Reilly (Meath) and Niall McNamee (Offaly) will offer a serious attacking platform.

The match will also feature Navan O’Mahony’s star Stephen Bray who announced his retirement from inter county duty in recent weeks but will make his inter county swan song in the Inter Provincial clash, having played a prominent role in guiding O’Mahony’s to the 2015 Meath title

Leinster meet Munster in Pairc Esler in Newry at 4pm on Saturday for the right to play either Connacht or Ulster in the final in Crossmaglen on Sunday.
