KERRY ARE SET to have to shake up their defence for next Sunday’s Munster senior football final with experienced full-back Aidan O’Mahony having been ruled out of the game with an elbow injury.

O’Mahony dislocated his elbow in an in house training game on Saturday and is now set to miss the Fitzgerald Stadium showdown against Cork as a result.

Manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice now has a selection dilemma on his hands but the return of Eoin Brosnan to club action for Dr Crokes over the weekend could boost his defensive options.

Brosnan would likely be included in the half-back line which could lead to Killian Young or Peter Crowley reverting to the full-back line and Marc O Se manning the edge of the square.

The alternative option for Kerry is to name Mark Griffin, who is a specialist full-back and has lined out in that position for Kingdom underage teams as well as the county senior side during this year’s league, as a replacement for O’Mahony.

Kerry are set to name their team later in the week for a game which has a throw-in time of 2pm and will be preceded by the meeting in the minor final of Kerry and Tipperary.
