Kerry’s James O’Donoghue and Johnny Buckley will miss the Munster SFC semi-final against either Clare or Waterford on 22 June.

In-form forward O'Donoghue, is facing a four-week absence after he sprained the AC joint in his left shoulder during training. 

Buckley picked up an ankle injury during Dr Crokes' shock Kerry SFC first round loss to Rathmore on Sunday weeks and won’t make the last-four clash.

Both players will be targeting a return for the Munster final on 6 July should Kerry, as many expect, reach the decider.
