KILDARE BOSS JACK O’Connor has revealed his starting line-up for their Leinster Senior Football Championship semi-final against Meath.

The teams are due to clash for a place in the provincial decider at Croke Park on Sunday afternoon (1pm, RTÉ News Now).

O’Connor’s selection shows one change from last weekend’s quarter-final victory over Offaly.

Matty Byrne of Sarsfields comes in on the right side of the half-forward line, with Celbridge’s Fergal Conway dropping out.

Sunday’s game is the first part of a double-header, with Dublin taking on Laois in the second semi-final (also live on RTÉ News Now) at 3.30pm.
