KERINS O’RAHILLY’s are sweating on the fitness of Barry John Keane and David Moran ahead of their round 3 senior football championship match against East Kerry at home on Saturday.

The Strand Road club’s manager, Barry O’Shea, said Barry John Keane’s ankle is swollen after last week’s victory against Milltown/Castlemaine.

“It happened just before half time, Barry John did remarkably well in fairness to him in the second half considering he couldn’t run well,” O’Shea told TraleeToday.ie on Wednesday.

“We’ve a lot of injuries, with only a six day turnaround we don’t have a lot of time to be getting fellas right,” said O’Shea.

David Moran is suffering from back and hamstring injuries. He was introduced in the second half last Sunday but struggled to really get going and is also a doubt to start against East Kerry.

Corner back, Shane Brosnan, has had to go for an x-ray for a suspected broken arm after sustaining a fall in Saturday’s game.

Adding to the injury woes, the side will most likely be without corner forward Kieran O’Mahony who got a straight red in the first half against Miltown/Castlemaine. However, the club are appealing the decision.

• Kerins O’Rahilly’s v East Kerry will have a thrown in time of 5pm, this Saturday at Strand Road.
