Paul Geaney and Conor Cox combined for nine points, as UCC defeated Carbery in the previous round, but Geaney misses out here through injury.
Michael Walsh was also excellent at midfield in that game and Tomás Clancy and Kerry panellist Jack McGuire and Kieran Histon give them a solid look in defence.
Attacker David Harrington, from Adrigole, misses out against his home division, though, as he is in China as part of his course.
Beara scored four goals in beating Seandun and will look for the same kind of attacking thrust here. Gary Murphy and Dave Fenton give them a presence inside and at midfield Andrew O’Sullivan and Brian T O’Sullivan should impose themselves.
UCC manager Dr Con Murphy is a son of 1945 All-Ireland medallist PA ‘Weeshie’ Murphy, a native of Bere Island.
