Joe Kernan has been confirmed as the new Ireland International Rules manager.

The former Armagh manager succeeds Paul Earley for the one-off Test with Australia at Croke Park on November 21st.

International rules veterans Darragh Ó Sé, Padraic Joyce and Dermot Earley will assist Kernan, as Ireland look to regain the Cormac McAnallen trophy, having lost to the Aussies last November.

Kernan says there's little chance of negative play from his side.
