KERRY MANAGER ÉAMONN Fitzmaurice has made just one change to his Munster final starting side as they prepare to face Galway in their Super 8s opener at Croke Park on Sunday (throw-in 4pm, live on RTÉ).

The Kingdom made it six provincial titles in-a-row last month as they beat Cork on a scoreline of 3-18 to 2-4.

But all attention now switches to the business end of the All-Ireland championship and the challenge of the Connacht kingpins at HQ this weekend.

Kilcummin’s Kevin McCarthy starts in place of Míchéal Burns in the half-forward line, while Kerry have stuck to their guns elsewhere.


1. Shane Murphy (Dr Crokes)

2. Jason Foley (Ballydonoghue)
3. Peter Crowley (Laune Rangers)
4. Brian Ó Beaglaoich (An Ghaeltacht)

5. Paul Murphy (Rathmore)
6. Tadhg Morley (Templenoe)
