Seán O'Shea will return to the Kerry football team for tomorrow's trip to Tyrone after missing out on the home win over Galway last weekend because of what boss Peter Keane said was a bug.

O'Shea was a late withdrawal and was replaced by Micheál Burns, who holds to his place now at the expense of Gavin O'Brien as Kerry make three changes. The other Kerry change sees Killian Spillane come in for James O'Donoghue who came off at half-time. Keane said there was no injury to O'Donoghue last week.

Tadhg Morley, who was also named last weekend but didn't start, is recalled as Shane Enright loses out.

Dessie Farrell, meanwhile, has made three changes and a number of positional switches for Dublin's home game against Monaghan today. Paul Mannion, Paddy Andrews and Paddy Small are all recalled to attack as Conor McHugh, Rory O'Carroll and Dan O'Brien lose out.

O'Carroll's place in defence goes to Brian Howard who drops into centre-back as Ciaran Kilkenny switches to a midfield partnership with Brian Fenton.

Kildare also make three changes, introducing Kevin Flynn, Jimmy Hyland and Keith Cribbin ahead of their trip to Armagh. Armagh manager Kieran McGeeney has kept faith in 14 of the 15 players that started against Laois last week.

Aaron McKay steps aside as Joe McElroy comes in for the visit of Kildare in a reshuffled defence.

Jamie Clarke has again been left on the bench after missing the opening game through suspension.

Laois manager Micheal Quirke has named the same starting 15, while Offaly have recalled Shane Horan for their visit to Drogheda to play Louth.
