No Galvin as Kerry name side for All-Ireland decider

Kingdom boss Jack O’Connor leaves Finuge man on the bench in favour of Donnchadh Walsh for much-anticipated Dublin showdown.

DONNCHADH WALSH HAS won his personal battle for an All-Ireland final starting berth.

The Cromane man gets the nod from Jack O’Connor ahead of former Footballer of the Year, Paul Galvin.

Walsh has evidently impressed Kingdom bosses since returning to full training in the past fortnight, having recovered from a groin injury.

Eoin Brosnan is marked to start too against Pat Gilroy’s Dubs, having recovered from an ankle sprain.
