O’Sullivan makes his Kingdom debut

KERRY have named 10 of the side that failed to Armagh in last year’s All-Ireland final for Sunday’s Munster SFC semi-final with Tipperary in Tralee.

Into the team at full-forward for his championship debut comes 20-year-old Declan O’Sullivan, while Seamus Scanlon will partner Dara Ó Sé at midfield and Johnny Crowley returns for his first start since 2001.

O’Sullivan was a former colleges star with Coláiste Na Sceilge, with whom he won Corn Uí Mhuirí championship medals in 2001 and 2002.

Mike Frank Russell, Aodán MacGearailt, Eoin Brosnan and Dara Ó Cinnéide, all of whom are recovering from injury, are included among the subs.

The team is notable for the inclusion of Eamon Fitzmaurice at full-back, which allows Seamus Moynihan to man the centre-back position.

Gone off the team completely are Marc Ó Sé, who is ill, and Donal Daly.

The Tipperary team shows one change from the side which defeated Waterford in round one. Tony Doyle comes in at right corner-forward for Peter Lambert, who will be out of action for some time following a recent cruciate knee ligament operation.

Clare coach John Kennedy gives championship debuts to goalkeeper Dermot O’Brien, left corner-back Dara Blake, right half-forward Michael O’Dwyer and left corner-forward Rory Donnelly for the Munster semi-final with Limerick in Cusack Park.

Alan Malone makes his first championship appearance in two years after being out through illness .

Despite the fact that they trounced Louth by 11 points in their previous outing, the Dublin selectors have seen fit to make three changes for Sunday’s Leinster semi-final against Laois.

Paul Casey comes in for David Henry at right half-back, Tom Mulligan takes over from Senan Connell at right half-forward while Liam Óg hEineacháin is preferred to John McNally at left corner-forward.

Mick O’Dwyer won’t name the Laois team until tomorrow at least in order to give Tom Kelly every chance to prove his fitness. Kelly broke a finger in the replay against Offaly.

Paul McDonald has been ruled out after he received a four-week suspension following his sending off against Offaly.

The Kildare selectors have named the team which started against Longford in the previous round for their Leinster semi-final clash with Meath in Croke Park on Saturday night.

Barry McKenzie-Smyth and Eddie McCormack, both of whom were replaced in that 1-14 to 2-6 victory, get the nod to start again.
