Kerry trio lose spots in first 15.
BY RONAN MCMANUS KERRY boss Eamonn Fitzmaurice has shaken the Kingdom by making three changes for Sunday's All-Ireland final.
Fitzmaurice hasn't been afraid to shuffle his pack all season and on the biggest day of the year he will bench his captain Kieran Donaghy as well as All-Star defenders Marc O Se and Paul Murphy (all above).
Fionn Fitzgerald and Aidan O'Mahony come into the full-back line while Kerry's Championship top-scorer Paul Geaney takes over from Donaghy in the full forward line. Rumours were rife in the Kingdom all week that injury concerns would keep the longserving O Se and 2014 final man-of-the-match Murphy out of the reckoning but both are named on the bench.
The powerful O'Mahony is at full-back with Fitzgerald in the corner.
Up front Geaney is rewarded for a superb contribution when introduced against Tyrone in the semi-final and starts alongside Colm Cooper and James O'Donoghue in a lethal full-forward line.
In the absence of Donaghy, midfielder David Moran will lead the Kingdom out against Dublin on All-Ireland final day - 37 years after his father Ogie did the same thing.
Fitzmaurice's starting 15 has 11 survivors from last year's final win over Donegal. KERRY: B Kealy; F Fitzgerald, A O'Mahony, S Enright; J Lyne, P Crowley, K Young; A Maher, D Moran; S O'Brien, J Buckley, D Walsh; C Cooper, P Geaney, J O'Donoghue.
