David Clifford has been included in the Kerry team for Sunday’s All-Ireland SFC quarter-final against Mayo, but absent from the matchday 26 is midfielder Jack Barry.
There had been speculation this week that Barry was struggling with a knock, his midfield spot going to David Moran who will make his first start for the county since last August’s extra-time All-Ireland semi-final defeat to Tyrone.
The return of Clifford and Moran to the Kerry starting line-up are two of three changes manager Jack O’Connor has made from the side that overcame Limerick in the Munster final earlier this month.
Dara Moynihan is also returned to the first 15 which will be hist first start since the league final in April.

Subs: S Murphy, T Brosnan, K Spillane, P Murphy, M Burns, J O'Connor, J Savage, G Crowley, D Roche, J O'Shea, S Okunbor.
