ALL-IRELAND CLUB champions Dr Crokes will face last year’s county intermediate winners Kenmare Shamrocks at the quarter-final stage of this year’s Kerry senior football championship.

The draw was made this afternoon and will see Dr Crokes, who won the All-Ireland club title on St Patrick’s Day last against Derry’s Slaughtneil, going up against Kenmare Shamrocks, who can call upon current Kerry senior panellists Stephen O’Brien and Sean O’Shea.

The remainder of the draw saw all of the divisional sides kept apart. David Moran and Barry John Keane’s Kerins O’Rahilly’s team will take on East Kerry.

2014 Kerry and Munster club champions Austin Stacks, who will be spearheaded by Kieran Donaghy, will face West Kerry.

The matches will take place when Kerry’s All-Ireland senior football campaign concludes with Eamonn Fitzmaurice’s side gearing up for a semi-final against Mayo or Roscommon on 20 August.
