Following their 0 - 13 to 0 - 8 win over Meath last Saturday in Round 3 of the Allianz Hurling League, Division 2A, the Kerry senior hurlers will have another long away trip to on this Saturday when they face Wicklow in Round 4. Venue is Joule Park in Aughrim where there will be a 2.00p.m. throw in time. Kerry are currently of the table with full points and a win this weekend would almost certainly ensure them of a place in the Final.
Kerry will finish out the League stages of the competition with a home game against Antrim on Sunday, 1 March at Austin Stack Park, 12.30p.m. The Division 2A Final is scheduled for Sunday, 8 March.

Sympathy is extended to the families of 2 former inter county players who died recently. The late Joe O’Sullivan of Dingle was a former Kerry & Austin Stacks hurler. He played for fifteen years with the Stacks hurlers (1966-1980), playing in 3 losing Co. Hurling Finals – 1968, 1969 & 1974 and played with Kerry in the 1960/70’s. The late Brendan O’Connell of Causeway played with his local club and was a member of the Kerry hurling team that won the All-Ireland Junior Hurling Championship in 1972 [they defeated Warwickshire in the Final by 5-5 to 2-9]
