Ó Sé answers the Kingdom call
KERRY veteran Tomás ó Sé has answered the call and returned to competitive action much earlier than expected to beef up their side to take on Dublin on Sunday, WRITES CLIONA FOLEY.
New boss Eamonn Fitzmaurice had given the Gaeltacht star leave to ease himself back gently and he was not expected to return until round three.
ó Sé's return sees Peter Crowley moving to corner-back to replace Shane Enright. Bryan Sheehan replaces club-tied Johnny Buckley at midfield and Barry John Keane comes in at corner-forward for Conor Cox.
Cork have brought in Michael Shields, Graham Canty, Alan O'Connor and Ciaran Sheehan to start against Kildare at Pairc Ui Rinn.
