Eamonn Fitzmaurice wants Kerry to stay cool

Last week, the Kingdom gained their second win in a row in an ill-tempered clash with Donegal, which saw two red cards and both counties fined €7,500 by the GAA after a number of skirmishes.

Fitzmaurice, who welcomes Colm Cooper back from injury for the game in Castlebar, is keen to move on from last week.

“Sometimes matches can take on a life of their own,” he said, “and the match last Sunday was a match that took on a life of its own but we’re moving on.

“We have to be disciplined now this weekend against Mayo. I think, looking back, Kerry never raised a hand at any stage, the scenes weren’t great but at the same time I think there seems to have been an awful lot made out of it.”

Cooper had been unavailable in the early part of the year after shoulder surgery but he is chosen as Alan Fitzgerald is suspended following his red card against Donegal. The other two changes see the goalkeeping rotation continue, with Brendan Kealy in for Brian Kelly, and Johnny Buckley replacing Denis Daly.

Meanwhile, Donegal have submitted a request for a hearing for full-back Neil McGee.

The CCCC proposed a one-game suspension for McGee, who was cited for a category 3 infraction fur the incident which led to Fitzgerald’s sending-off, with McGee understood to have suffered a broken nose.

The Donegal County Board have confirmed that they are fighting the ban and have also appealed the €7,500 fine received.

Mayo have two changes from their win over Monaghan, with Chris Barrett and Jason Doherty in for Michael Hall and Conor Loftus.

Cork, who host Monaghan, have named the same team which started the four-point loss to Dublin last weekend. Goalkeeper Stephen Cluxton, Michael Fitzsimons, John Small, Shane Carthy, Kevin McManamon all come into the Dublin team to face Down.
