KERRY MANAGER EAMONN Fitzmaurice has made three changes to his side ahead of Roscommon’s visit to Fitzgerald Stadium on Sunday.

After being dismantled by the Dubs in GAA HQ in their league opener, Fitzmaurice has resisted any urge to make wholesale alterations.

Instead, he has switched goalkeepers, Brian Kelly taking over from Brendan Kealy, veteran Aidan O’Mahony comes into the half-back line in place of Fionn Fitzgerald and on the other side of midfield, Jonathan Lyne replaces Philip O’Connor.

Tommy Walsh has once again been named on the edge of the square but where he actually operates on Sunday, having played at midfield for considerable spells last week, remains to be seen.

Castlegregory’s Alan Fitzgerald is among the substitutes, as is Dingle’s Barry O’Sullivan who won an All Ireland minor medal with Kerry in 2014.
