Kerry make three changes ahead of Clare clash

Peter Crowley returns to the half back line in place of Aidan O’Mahony. David Moran starts in midfield in place of Bryan Sheehan and up front, James O’Donoghue returns for his first start since last year’s All Ireland final replacing the injured Colm Cooper. The substitutes list includes three of this year’s Under 21 side namely Tom O’Sullivan, Barry O’Sullivan and Tony Brosnan, who all make the championship match day squad for the first time.
