Connacht manager John O'Mahony has selected a 23-man squad for tomorrow night's floodlit M Donnelly Interprovincial semi-final clash with Leinster at Parnell Park (throw-in 7.35pm).

O'Mahony, who ended his long tenure as Galway boss in August of last year, has included seven players from his former county.

Declan Meehan, Barry Cullinane, Paul Clancy, Kieran Fitzgerald, John Devane and Sean Armstrong, who struck 3-1 in last May's All-Ireland Under-21 final win, have all been selected.

Former dual star Alan Kerins, who played for the Galway hurlers during last summer's championship, is the seventh Tribesman named.

Kerins, along with Fitzgerald, Meehan and Clancy, won a 2001 All-Ireland SFC medal under O'Mahony.

2004 All-Star James Nallen heads the five players chosen from Mayo, while Roscommon and Sligo boast three representatives each.

Michael McGuinness, Dermot Reynolds, John McKeon, Barry McWeeney and Declan Maxwell make up Leitrim's five-man contingent.

School teacher O'Mahony famously led Leitrim to their first Connacht SFC title for 67 years back in 1994.

CONNACHT (SF v Leinster): D Meehan, B Cullinane, A Kearns, P Clancy, K Fitzgerald, S Armstrong, J Devane (Galway), M McGuinness, D Reynolds, J McKeon, B McWeeney, D Maxwell (Leitrim), D Clarke, J Nallen, P Gardiner, A O'Malley, A Dillon (Mayo), G Heneghan, J Kiernan, D Casey (Roscommon), M Brehony, J Davey, P Green (Sligo).
