Kerry boss O'Connor rings the changes for Westmeath tie

Midfielder Bryan Sheehan is one of four new faces to the Kerry team after their provincial championship loss to Cork with the injured Darran O’Sullivan amongst those to make way.

JACK O’CONNOR HAS shaken up his starting fifteen for next Sunday’s All-Ireland SFC round two qualifier against Westmeath in the wake of their Munster semi-final defeat to Cork last month by making four changes in personnel.

Hamstring injury victims Peter Crowley and Darran O’Sullivan will both start on the bench for the game in Mullingar. Brian Maguire deputises for Crowley at left half-back while Donnchadh Walsh makes his return after a long spell sidelined with injury to replace O’Sullivan at centre-forward.

Bryan Sheehan makes his expected return to the starting fifteen at midfield as he replaces Seamus Scanlon while James O’Donoghue comes into the attack at corner-forward instead of Kieran O’Leary with Colm Cooper shifting inside to full-forward.
