Kerry have dropped two-time All Star Kieran Donaghy from their team to take on Cork in Sunday’s Munster final.

In what will be seen as a big gamble by manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice, Darran O'Sullivan comes in to replace Donaghy in the full-forward line for Sunday’s showdown.

Donaghy scored a point against Tipperary and a goal against Waterford in his two previous starts.

The Kerry boss has made changes elsewhere as he hands Mark Griffin his Championship debut, replacing the injured Aidan O'Mahony at fullback. Shane Enright returns to the corner back position, forcing Fionn Fitzgerald to the bench.

Kerry team to play Cork: Brendan Kealy, Marc Ó Sé, Mark Griffin, Shane Enright, Tomás Ó Sé, Killian Young, Peter Crowley, Anthony Maher, Johnny Buckley, Paul Galvin, Colm Cooper, Donnchadh Walsh, Darran O’Sullivan, Declan O’Sullivan, James O’Donoghue

Substitutes: Brian Kelly Killarney, Kieran Donaghy, Fionn Fitzgerald, Bryan Sheehan.Eoin Brosnan
