Mickey Harte has kept faith with the team that beat Derry for Sunday's Ulster SFC semi-final against Cavan.

Limerick manager has opted to include four members of last year's All-Ireland U21 winning squad in his starting team for Sunday's Munster SHC semi-final against Tipperary.

Left corner-back Richie English, right half-back Diarmaid Byrnes and wing-forwards Gearoid Hegarty and Barry Nash will all make the championship bows for the Treaty County at Semple Stadium, while Dan Morrissey starts his first championship match at full-back.

In total there are six changes from the side that started the Allianz Hurling League quarter-final defeat to Waterford with Tom Condon, Seamus Hickey, Shane Dowling, Graeme Mulcahy and Declan Hannon all coming into the side to face Tipperary.

Callum Mullan-Young is named in goal for the injured Thomas Mallon, while Brendan Rogers comes into centre-back with Ciaran Mullan starting at full-back.

There is just one change to the Mayo team that overcame London for Saturday's COnnacht SFC semi-final against Galway.
