All-Ireland SFC semi-final: Mayo v Tipperary

Throw-in: 3.30pm, Sunday. Venue: Croke Park. How to follow: The Irish Times liveblog will begin at 3pm. On TV: Live on RTÉ2 and Sky Sports Mix. Referee: David Gough (Meath).

Tipperary manager David Power gives a vote of confidence to the side that won the Munster football title for Sunday’s All-Ireland semi-final against Mayo. It is the county’s first semi-final as provincial champions since 1935 when they were lost narrowly to eventual winners Cavan. The side will be captained by Conor Sweeney and features Colin O’Riordan, who plays in the AFL with the Sydney Swans but who has been given permission by the club to play for his county.

Mayo have also remained unchanged from the team that got them to the semi-finals with manager James Horan sticking with the 15 that saw off Galway in the Connacht final. Goalkeeper David Clarke is set for his 55th championship appearance while Lee Keegan, Patrick Durcan, Kevin McLoughlin, Diarmuid O’Connor, Aidan O’Shea and Cillian O’Connor all played alongside Clarke in the All-Ireland semi-final in 2016 when Mayo saw off Tipp.
