Cooper and Galvin back in Kerry squad and 3 changes to team for Tyrone clash

The sides meet in Omagh next Sunday.

Paul Galvin and Colm Cooper return to the Kerry squad.

PAUL GALVIN AND Colm Cooper are back on bench for Kerry this weekend as they head to Omagh desperate to avoid relegation when they face Tyrone.

Kerry need to avoid defeat to preserve their Division 1 status and manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice has added Galvin and Cooper to his squad.

There are also three changes to the Kerry team that lost to Monaghan last Sunday with Brendan Kealy named in goal, Paul Murphy coming in at corner-back and Bryan Sheehan selected at centre-forward.

Brian Kelly and Pa Kilkenny drop to the bench while injury rules out Paul Geaney.
