GAELIC GAMES

David Clifford looks set to be available for Kerry for this Sunday's All-Ireland football quarter-final against Mayo.

Their star forward is back in training according to manager Jack O'Connor.

Clifford missed the Munster final win over Limerick due to a calf injury.

Dylan Casey, however, is out for the rest of the inter-county season having undergone surgery on an ankle injury.

Galway's Gearóid McInerney will have his knee injury assessed again later in the week.

The centre back limped off in Saturday's win over Cork in Thurles and is in danger of missing for their semi-final against Limerick.

Manager Henry Shefflin says McInerney won't need surgery, but conceded he's a "serious doubt" for the game on Sunday week.
