Kerry concern for midfielder O Sé

All-Star midfielder Darragh O Sé has emerged as an injury doubt for Kerry's Munster SFC final clash with Cork on Sunday week.

O Sé, who has made closer to 90 championship appearances for the Kingdom, damaged his groin during a challenge match against Meath in Templemore on Monday night. He limped off after ten minutes' play.

If the An Ghaeltacht clubman fails to recover in time, Kerry manager Pat O'Shea could revert Kieran Donaghy to a midfield role for the Pairc Ui Chaoimh encounter.

Donaghy has been hampered by a knee injury this season but he came on a substitute in Kerry's recent championship win over Clare and also impressed in Monday's victory over Meath.

O'Shea is already planning for the Cork game without the suspended Paul Galvin and injured former captain Declan O'Sullivan, who has a cartilage problem.

Cork boss Conor Counihan also has a lengthy injury list to contend with.

Alan O'Connor (knee) and Diarmuid Duggan (foot) remain doubtful for the Munster decider, but John Miskella (AC joint), Kevin McMahon (dislocated elbow), Paudie Kissane (broken arm) and Noel O'Leary (AC joint) are definitely ruled out for the Rebels.
