The Kerry Juniors, U20s & Minors
Kerry meet Galway in the All Ireland Junior final which will be played on Saturday July 21st at 2pm in Cusack Park Ennis. The referee is Brendan Cawley and extra time will be played if necessary. Jimmy Keane will name his team on Thursday on the Kerry GAA website. We wish the Panel, Jimmy and his Management team every success on Saturday!
Last Saturday, Kildare booked their place in the U20 All Ireland final after beating Kerry by the narrowest of margins. While things didn’t go according to plan on the day, one must credit the Kerry U20s for the brave fight back in the last 10 minutes. With a little bit of luck, Kerry would have most likely snatched a draw but the final whistle sounded and Kerry exited the competition on a scoreline of 1-14 to 1-13. Our sincere thanks to these young men who gave it their all in the pursuit of the inaugural U20 Cup. Thanks also to Jack O’Connor, Eamon Whelan, John Crowley, Micheál Ó Sé and all the backroom team for their meticulous dedication to the U20 campaign.
The Kerry Minors now know their opposition in the All Ireland Quarter Final following last Friday’s Connacht Final. We always knew we were due to play the Connacht Runners Up so following Roscommon’s defeat to Galway, our meeting with Roscommon is confirmed for the last weekend in July.
