DAVID CLIFFORD HAS been recalled to the Kerry starting line-up as they prepare to take on Tyrone in the All-Ireland SFC semi-final on Sunday at Croke Park [throw-in, 3.30pm].

The Fossa star missed his side’s final Super 8s clash with Meath last weekend due to a back injury.

Peter Keane’s charges secured a win to book their place in the All-Ireland semi-finals, and despite some concerns about Clifford’s availability, the Kerry boss confirmed that he would be fit to line out against Tyrone.

The talented 20-year-old has been named to start at corner forward in place of Micheál Burns as the Kingdom prepare to battle for a place in the decider against either Dublin or Mayo.

Keane has made just one other change to the starting team, with Shane Enright coming into the Kerry defence while Brian Ó Beaglaoích makes way.
