Ó Sé and Galvin back to bolster Kingdom

2009 All-Star duo Tomás Ó Sé and Paul Galvin have been drafted straight into the Kerry team for Sunday's All-Ireland SFC quarter-final against Limerick.

2009 All-Star duo Tomás Ó Sé and Paul Galvin have been drafted straight into the Kerry team for Sunday's All-Ireland SFC quarter-final against Limerick.

Ó Sé will be making his second appearance of the 2011 Championship after seeing out his eight-week ban for a red card offence in May's win over Tipperary.

His return at right half-back sees Killian Young revert to the right corner back position and Shane Enright drop to the substitutes bench.

Galvin, who has been troubled by a hamstring injury this season, impressed during a challenge match against Roscommon last weekend. He earns a start in the half-forwards for the Croke Park encounter (throw-in 2pm).

Kieran O'Leary is the player to make way, with former captain Darran O'Sullivan moved to top of the left, forming a formidable-looking full-forward line with current skipper Colm Cooper and Kieran Donaghy.

O'Sullivan sustained a foot injury in the victory over Roscommon but was only taken off as a precaution. The Glenbeigh/Glencar clubman will be hoping to continue his fine goal-scoring form of late - he netted against both Limerick and Cork in the Munster Championship.

The teams will be wearing their alternate strips for Sunday's provincial derby. Munster champions Kerry will don blue jerseys and Limerick will be in white shirts.

The Kingdom have reached the All-Ireland quarter-finals every year since a new Championship system was introduced in 2001. Their only defeat came last year when they lost to Down by six points.

KERRY (SFC v Limerick): Brendan Kealy; Killian Young, Marc Ó Sé, Tom O'Sullivan; Tomás Ó Sé, Eoin Brosnan, Aidan O'Mahony; Anthony Maher, Bryan Sheehan; Paul Galvin, Declan O'Sullivan, Donnchadh Walsh; Colm Cooper (capt), Kieran Donaghy, Darran O'Sullivan.

Substitutes: Tomás Mac a t'Saoir, Shane Enright, Kieran O'Leary, Daniel Bohane, Michéal Quirke, Barry John Keane, Brian Maguire, Séamus Scanlon, Padraig Reidy, Niall O'Mahony, James O'Donoghue.
