Kerry manager Jack O'Connor has made four changes for tomorrow night's Munster U-21 final clash with Cork, with senior player Brian Ó Beaglaoích amongst those drafted in.

The An Ghaeltacht man lined out in the Championship for Kerry last year but has struggled with injury this term. However, he is named in the half-back line, having appeared as a sub in the semi-final win over Waterford.

Gavin White, who won an All-Ireland title with Dr Crokes on St Patrick's Day, also comes into the side. Brandon Barrett and Matthew O'Sullivan are also given the nod by O'Connor.

Jack Morgan, Cormac Coffey, Barry O'Sullivan and Lee O'Donoghue are the players to make way as the Kingdom look to avenge last year's final defeat to the Rebels.

Kerry (U-21 FC v Cork): S Ryan; T (Leo) O'Sullivan, J Foley, B Sugrue; B Ó Beaglaoích, T O'Sullivan, G White; A Barry, B O Seanachain; B Barrett, S O'Shea, M Flaherty; K Spillane, M O'Sullivan, C Bambury.
