Changes Aplenty for Cork And Kerry Ahead Of Munster Final Showdown

Dara Moynihan Kerry

Dara Moynihan is set to make his championship debut on Saturday evening when Kerry face Cork in the Munster Senior Football final. 

The Spa club man is one of four changes made by manager Peter Keane from the team that beat Clare in the semi-final earlier this month.

He comes into the forward line in place of James O’Donoghue who picked up an injury during the 1-15 to 0-12 win in Ennis.

There are two changes in defensive with Gavin White, who captains the side, and Paul Murphy named in the half-back line with Gavin Crowley and Shane Enright dropping to the bench.

The final change comes in midfield with Jack Barry named in place of Adrian Spillane.

Meanwhile, injuries have forced Cork into making three changes for Saturday’s clash with Tom Clancy, Eoghan McSweeney and John O’Rourke all missing out.

In their places come Sean White, Kevin O’Driscoll and Stephen Sherlock while Peter Murphy and Paul Walsh have been added to the replacements.

Kerry travel to Pairc Ui Chaoimh on Saturday evening in the hope of winning a seventh Munster title in a row. Throw-in is at 7pm and the game will be broadcast live on RTE.
