The semi-finals in the M Donnelly Interprovincial Football Championship will take place under lights when Munster take on Connacht in Ballyforan on Friday night and Leinster begin their title defense against Ulster at Kingspan Breffni Park in Cavan on Saturday night. Leinster overcame Ulster in a thrilling final in Parnell Park in 2005 and both provinces now hold 27 Interprovincial titles.
