Kerry boss Jack O’Connor has made four changes to his starting XV for Sunday’s qualifier with Westmeath at Cusack Park, throw-in 3:00pm.

Bryan Sheehan will partner Anthony Maher in midfield as the St Mary’s clubman has recovered from a knee injury that ruled him out of the Munster semi-final defeat to Cork.

Seamus Scanlon started in midfield against the Rebels but drops to the bench as Sheehan returns.

Donnchadh Walsh starts in place of the injured Darran O’Sullivan, however, the Glenbeigh/Glencar forward will be fit enough to take his place on the bench.

Listowel Emmett’s Brian Maguire starts on Sunday in place of Peter Crowley, while James O’Donoghue comes in for Kieran O’Leary.

Colm Cooper will start against Westmeath at full-forward, having played at corner forward against Cork, while Kieran Donaghy is set to play a more roving role out the field.

Kerry XV to play Westmeath on Sunday 15 July, Cusack Park, throw-in 3:00pm: Brendan Kealy, Marc Ó Sé, Aidan O’Mahony, Killian Young, Tomás Ó Sé, Eoin Brosnan, Brian Maguire, Anthony Maher, Bryan Sheehan, Paul Galvin, Declan O’Sullivan, Donnchadh Walsh, James O’Donoghue, Colm Cooper (captain), Kieran Donaghy.
