JOHNNY BUCKLEY AND Jack Barry are both back in the Kerry team for this weekend’s All-Ireland quarter-final at Croke Park.

The Kingdom face Galway at GAA HQ on Sunday (2pm) and Eamonn Fitzmaurice has made two changes to the team that saw off Cork in the Munster final.

Captain Buckley comes into the forward line for his first game of the season — replacing the injured Kevin McCarthy — while Jack Barry starts in midfield with Anthony Maher dropping to the bench.

Meanwhile, Jack Savage and Brian Ó Beaglaoich return to the matchday squad to take their place among the substitutes.
