Kerry go all guns blazing with team to play Kildare

While the world celebrates St Patrick, Kerry and Kildare will go to war.

The focus of the GAA world may be on Croke Park on Saturday, but the game between Kerry and Kildare may turn some heads too.

Austin Park will host the Allianz League Division One clash as the Kingdom look to bounce back from their heavy defeat to Dublin last weekend.

Eamon Fitzmaurice has made three changes from the side that were well-beaten by the Sky Blues. Fionn Fitzgerald replaces Shane Enright, Dáithí Casey comes in for Sean O’Shea and Barry John Keane slots in instead of Adrian Spillane.

David Moran and Johnny Buckley make the bench. This is the first time this season they have been in the squad. The big names missing include Kieran Donaghy, James O'Donoghue and Darran Sullivan.
