Top of Group 1!
Kerry Supporters had a smile on their face making the long trip back to Kerry last Saturday night as the U-20 Kerry Hurlers had retained the Richie McElligott Cup and the Senior football team topped the Group 1 table.
While the Seniors’ performance may not have reached the heights of previous Group 1 games, their fight and determination were particularly evident in the second half. In the final 10 minutes, Kerry pulled away and finished up 2-18 to 1-13 winners over an impressive Meath side.
At the press briefing on Monday night, Senior Manager Peter Keane was high in his praise and gratitude to the Kerry fans who travelled in large numbers to Navan and also to the Kerry fans who sent the team warm wishes in the lead up to all the Super 8 games. Peter reinforced the point that the support was needed more than ever next Sunday!
As we finished winners of Group 1, we are down to play the runners up of Group 2 on Sunday.
The Kerry V Tyrone All Ireland semi final will throw in at 3.30pm in Croke Park on Sunday. Referee for this all important fixture is Maurice Deegan.
The game is preceded by the All Ireland Minor semi-final between Kerry and Galway at 1.30pm. Our record at Minor level is rather impressive but very few of this panel have experienced Intercounty Minor success in Croke Park and it is a very proud day for these young men as they represent their club, family and county on Sunday.
