Dara Moynihan will make his Kerry championship debut in Saturday’s Munster SFC final against Cork, replacing the hamstrung James O’Donoghue. 

All told, Kerry boss Peter Keane makes four changes from the team that started in their underwhelming six-point win over Clare, giving call-ups to Moynihan in attack, a fit-again Paul Murphy and Gavin White in the half-back line, and Jack Barry at midfield. 

Former Footballer of the Year O'Donoghue appeared back close to his best before limping off after 52 minutes in Ennis, having scored 1-1. 

He isn't listed in the Kerry match-day 26 whereas Gavin Crowley, Adrian Spillane and Shane Enright all drop to the bench. 

Sean O'Shea has recovered from a collision with Clare’s Kevin Hartnett, late on in the game, and is set to take his place on the '40' as Kerry go chasing a seventh consecutive Munster title. 

KERRY (SFC v Cork): S Ryan; J Foley, T Morley, T O’Sullivan; P Murphy, J Sherwood, G White; D Moran, J Barry; D O’Connor, S O’Shea, S O’Brien; D Clifford, P Geaney, D Moynihan.
