Kerry will be missing a couple of players due to injury and illness when they face Antrim in this weekend’s opening round of the Joe McDonagh Cup.

Paud Costello won’t be available until the Westmeath game and Jason Diggins will miss the trip up north with a virus.

Manager Fintan O’Connor says the busy month of club activity in April was factored into the preparations for the Joe McDonagh Cup.

Kerry versus Antrim will get underway in Dunloy at 5pm on Saturday.
