Allianz Football League leaders Cork have included all three O’Driscoll brothers for Sunday’s table-topping clash with Mayo.
Defender Brian O’Driscoll comes into the first team and joins siblings Kevin and Colm who are named in the wing-forward positions.
Boss Brian Cuthbert has made four changes in all with experienced goalkeeper Ken O’Halloran, corner-back Noel Galvin and centre-forward Paul Kerrigan also drafted in.
Opponents Mayo have similarly overhauled their side after being hammered by Dublin. They make six changes with three of them enforced due to injury and suspension.
David Clarke returns in goal, Ger Cafferkey is at corner-back while there’s an all new midfield of Barry Moran and Tom Parsons. Up front, Alan Dillon and Danny Kirby start.
All-Ireland champions Kerry have made three alterations for Monaghan’s visit. Brian Kelly is in goals for the first time since the All-Ireland win. Shane Enright replaces Paul Murphy (back) while debutant Alan Fitzgerald is in for Brian Sheehan (rib). Marc O Se and Darren O’Sullivan return to the bench after injury. Monaghan have recalled Kieran Duffy and Owen Duffy in defence and attack.
Meanwhile, the Cork hurlers have drafted in William Kearney, Killian Burke and Anthony Spillane for Sunday’s league quarter-final clash with Wexford.
Kilmallock duo Paudie O’Brien and Graeme Mulcahy return to the Limerick side to face Dublin at Croke Park tomorrow evening. But Clare will be without Brendan Bugler for their relegation clash with Kilkenny. His appeal against the red card picked up in the win over Dublin was rejected.
