It follows a severe accommodation shortage in the capital. 

The Kerry hurling panel are the latest group to be impacted by the shortage of hotel beds in Dublin.

They're due to face Antrim in the Joe Mc Donagh Cup final in Croke Park on June 4th.

However, they've been unable to book rooms at a hotel ahead of the game.

It's unlikely the players will endure the near five-hour commute on the day of the match.

Former Kerry footballer Darragh Ó Sé says players would normally have a routine they would follow for a major final.

"It takes a lot from the whole event. They're not really sure what they're going to do," he said.

"Will they go up halfway up the country, then you're getting back on a bus, taking up the second half of the country."

"It's very difficult for the players because, the current Kerry hurling team, they've been in finals before, they're used to that routine."
