Cork name team to face Kerry in Páirc uí Chaoimh
Cork have named their team to face Kerry in the Munster Football Championship semi final clash in Páirc uí Chaoimh on Sunday.
The big surprise is that Mark Keane has been named in the panel – the Mitchelstown native has been playing AFL for Melbourne side Collingwood and only recently signed a new two year deal.
Keane made his debut for the club in August, and has been in Australia for the past two years – Keane is named among the substitutes for Sunday’s game.
