GAA Team News: Kildare keep faith with starting side that vanquished Cork

Jason Ryan has named an unchanged Kildare team for this weekend’s All-Ireland SFC quarter-final against Kerry.


The manager is keeping faith with the starting XV that saw off Cork in Semple Stadium last weekend.

Kildare face Kerry eight days after knocking Cork out of the Championship.

The Kingdom are hot favourites for the match in Croke Park on Sunday, despite needing a replay of the Munster final to overcome the same opposition.

Kerry named their side, and made one change to their starting 15. Johnny Buckley is replaced in the half-forward line by Stephen O’Brien, who received a red card late on in Kerry’s Munster final replay win.

Kildare team: 1. Mark Donnellan Maynooth; 2. Ciaran Fitzpatrick Kilcock, 3. Mick O Grady Celbridge, 4. Ollie Lyons Celbridge; 5. Kevin Murnaghan Moorefield, 6. Eoin Doyle Naas, 7. Emmet Bolton Eadestown; 8. Tommy Moolick Leixlip, 9. Paul Cribbin Johnstownbridge; 10. Eoghan O Flaherty Carbury, 11. Niall Kelly Athy, 12. Padraig O Neill St Laurences; 13. Eamon Callaghan Naas, 14. Alan Smith Sarsfields, 15. Cathal McNally Johnstownbridge.
