Defender John McKeon has been declared fit to start for Leitrim in Sunday's Connacht SFC semi-final against Galway (Pairc Sean Mac Diarmada, throw-in 2pm).

McKeon went over on his ankle during a training session last week but in a considerable boost, manager Dessie Dolan snr has been able to include the Drumreilly clubman in his side.

Dolan's line-up for the televised clash shows one change to the team that accounted for London last time out by 1-12 to 2-5.

Barry McWeeney comes in at left corner back for Ciaran Kennedy.

There is also a positional switch in the half forwards with Michael Foley now stationed at centre-forward and Declan Maxwell moving to the left flank.

Sunday's game marks the official opening of Leitrim's new 3,000-capacity stand at their Carrick-on-Shannon home.

GAA President Nickey Brennan will be on hand to perform the ceremonial duties.

The winners of Sunday's encounter will face Sligo in the Connacht final on July 8.

Leitrim, who have not reached the final since 2000, have lost their last seven championship matches against Galway - their last win over the Tribesmen was back in the 1994 season when they were last crowned Connacht champions.

LEITRIM (SFC v Galway) - N Gill; D Reynolds, M McGuinness, B McWeeney; B Prior, J McKeon, S Foley; G McCloskey, M Duignan; C Regan, M Foley, D Maxwell; D Brennan, J Glancy, C Duignan.
