Kerry manager Eamon Fitzmaurice has handed two players their debuts for this weekend's Munster Championship semi-final with Clare.

Brian Ó Beaglaoich from An Ghaeltacht and Templenoe's Tadhg Morley will take up both wing-back berths in a team that shows five changes from the side that lost to Dublin in the Allianz League final for Sunday's match.

Ó Beaglaioch is making his Championship debut having made his League debut against Dublin in the AFL Round 1 earlier this year. He has won an All Ireland Minor medal with Kerry in 2014 in the full back position and has two Hogan Cup (2014 & 2015) and three Munster Colleges Corn Uí Mhuirí medals.

Morley played Minor for Kerry in 2010 and 2011 and Under 21 for the county in 2012 and 2013. He was centre back on the Kerry team that won the All Ireland Junior title last year.
