JOHN KIELY HAS unveiled the Limerick starting line-up and substitutes for their All-Ireland semi-final against Kilkenny.

A place in this year’s decider will be at stake when the teams meet at Croke Park on Saturday evening (6pm).

Kiely has opted to stick with the same line-up that started Limerick’s impressive Munster final victory over Tipperary last month.

Declan Hannon will again captain the All-Ireland champions as they aim to reach back-to-back finals for the first time in 45 years.

Kilkenny, who saw off Cork in their quarter-final, are expected to unveil their team tomorrow evening.
