Munster SFC final replay.

Kerry v Limerick, Killarney, 3.30pm

Kerry and Limerick renew rivalries today in the Bank of Ireland Munster football final replay at Fitzgerald Stadium, as the Kingdom look to make home advantage count following last week’s draw at the Gaelic Grounds.

However, Kerry are without stalwart Seamus Moynihan in defence, as his ankle injury continues to sideline him. There are also injury doubts surrounding Aidan O'Mahony, who picked up a thigh injury in last week’s encounter.

Marc Ó Sé has expected to retain his place as Moynihan’s deputy. Declan O'Sullivan remains on the treatment table with a collarbone injury.

Meanwhile, in spite of an injury scare surrounding centre-forward Muiris Gavin, Limerick have emerged unscathed from last week's game.

The Monaleen man, who kicked four points from placed balls last week, passed a fitness test and Limerick manager Liam Kearns has included him in the starting 15, which is unchanged from last week.

Limerick put it up to Kerry last week, and led the Kingdom at half-time, despite playing into the wind in the first-half.

However, a second-half fightback, inspired by midfielder Dara Ó Sé, saw the Kingdom notch up the scores to level the game, but neither side could get the score to win the game.

Kerry are expected to retain their title this weekend and send Limerick to the draw for Round 4 of the qualifiers.

LIMERICK (SF v Kerry): S O'Donnell; M O'Riordan, J McCarthy, T Stack; C Mullane, S Lucey, S Lavin; J Quane, J Galvin; S Kelly, M Gavin, J Stokes, C Fitzgerald, O Keating, M O'Brien.
