  • Kerry have made one change in the side that won the Munster SFC final, as they prepare to face Mayo in their Super 8s opener tomorrow at Fitzgerald Stadium.


    Micheál Burns comes in to replace Jack Barry after coming on in the provincial decider against Cork where Kerry managed to hold on for a Munster seven-in-a-row.

    Burns will take up his position in the Kerry half-forward line while Diarmuid O’Connor filters back to pair up with David Moran in midfield.

    Kerry manager Peter Keane has also named two other positional changes ahead of the Mayo showdown.

    Paul Murphy and Tom O’Sullivan swap places in defence while Dara Moynihan moves into the full-forward line as Stephen O’Brien takes up a half-forward position.

    Paul Geaney was sent off in the second half of the Munster final, but he has been named to start at full-forward again on Sunday.

    The Kerry team in full is as follows:


    1. Shane Ryan (Rathmore)

    2. Jason Foley (Ballydonoghue)
    3. Tadhg Morley (Templenoe)
    4. Tom O’Sullivan (Dingle)

    5. Paul Murphy (Rathmore)
    6. Jack Sherwood (Firies)
    7. Gavin White (Dr Crokes)

    8. David Moran (Kerins O’Rahillys)
    9. Diarmuid O’Connor (Na Gaeil)

    10. Micheál Burns (Dr. Crokes)
    11. Sean O’Shea (Kenmare)

    13. David Clifford (Fossa)
    14. Paul Geaney (Dingle)
    15. Dara Moynihan (Spa, Killarney)

  • Kerry forward James O'Donoghue will be fit for the Super 8's showdown against Mayo in Killarney on Sunday.

    The Legion player missed the Munster final win over Cork with a hamstring injury.

    Sean Hurson has been confirmed as the referee for this crucial Super 8’s tie.

    Elsewhere, Roscommon will host Tyrone in Dr Hyde Park at 5 on Saturday evening as part of a triple header, with David Coldrick confirmed as the referee.

  • Kildare are reportedly refusing to move their third round qualifier with Mayo to Croke Park.

    GAA officials today announced a double-header at H-Q for Saturday, with that game preceded by the all-Ulster clash of Cavan and Tyrone.

    But it's been reported that the Kildare County Board are refusing to concede home advantage and want the game played in Newbridge.

  • The Mayo v Kildare game will be played in St Conleth’s Park in Newbridge on Saturday evening.

    While the GAA has yet to confirm this, Mayo GAA has issued a statement this afternoon confirming the venue change.

    The game will be played at 7pm on Saturday evening in Newbridge.

    It follows three days of a standoff between Kildare GAA and Croke Park.

    Kildare were first out of the hat on Monday morning and understood they would have a home draw.

    However later on Monday, the GAA confirmed that the game would be played in Croke Park, as a double header with Cavan and Tyrone, because of health and safety issues with St Conleth’s Park.

    Kildare manager Cian O’Neill said that his team would not be travelling to Croke Park and they would be in Newbridge, regardless of where the game was fixed for.

    Reports begun to emerge this morning that the ticket sales for the game, which only went live this morning, had been suspended and the game could be switched to Newbridge.

    This afternoon Mayo GAA says it is awaiting full details from the GAA in relation to tickets for this fixture. The statement says that they expect that all Mayo GAA season ticket holders will get access to a ticket for this game. There may also be a very limited number of tickets on sale to the general public through SuperValu and Centra outlets.

    In relation to supporters who had purchased tickets for the game in Croke Park on Saturday evening, we are awaiting details from Croke Park, who handle all ticket arrangements for this game.

    The statement concludes by saying the Mayo team and management have this week been preparing to play Kildare on Saturday and look forward to having a passionate Mayo support in Newbridge on Saturday evening.
