Tipperary name their team for first All-Ireland semi-final in 81 years

The Tipperary footballers will, as expected, line-out unchanged for their first All-Ireland semi-final in 81 years, writes Stephen Barry.

Liam Kearns has kept the faith in the same starting 15 since defeating Cork in the Munster semi-final, although there is a positional switch in attack.

Michael Quinlivan will wear the number 11 jersey and can operate as a kick-out and scoring option.

Kevin O’Halloran, Conor Sweeney and Philip Austin make up the full-forward line.

Mayo named their team earlier today for what will be a first meeting of the sides since the westerners’ four-point victory in a round four qualifier 14 years ago.

Their only other previous Championship meetings were the 1918 and 1920 All-Ireland semi-finals, both of which were won by Tipp.

The Tipperary team lines out as follows:

1. Evan Comerford - Kilsheelan-Kilcash

2. Colm O’Shaughnessy - Ardfinnan

3. Alan Campbell - Moyle Rovers

4. Ciarán Mc Donald - Aherlow

5. Bill Maher - Kilsheelan-Kilcash

6. Robbie Kiely - Carbery Rangers

7. Jimmy Feehan - Killenaule

8. Peter Acheson (Capt.) - Moyle Rovers

9. George Hannigan - Shannon Rovers

10. Josh Keane - Golden-Kilfeacle

11. Michael Quinlivan - Clonmel Commercials

12. Brian Fox - Éire Óg Annacarty

13. Kevin O’Halloran - Portroe

14. Conor Sweeney - Ballyporeen

15. Philip Austin - Borrisokane
