Kerry’s opponents still unknownA game that was largely forgettable up to then sprung to life in the final ten minutes or so as Mayo staged a remarkable comeback to deny Dublin a passage to the All Ireland final against Kerry in the second semi final at Croke Park on Sunday last. Indeed Dublin were fortunate enough not to lose the game as Mayo, who had all the momentum in those hectic final minutes, failed to close out the deal. They both return to headquarters on Saturday next...

Place in All Ireland Final at Stake as Kerry take on Tyrone in All Ireland Semi FinalAfter a Championship that has hardly set the world alight, we are down to the final four teams in the competition and I think that it is true to say that there is little doubt but the best four teams remain. Munster champions Kerry, take on Tyrone on Sunday next in Croke Park (3:30) for a place in the All Ireland Final and the stakes could hardly be higher. Kerry were hardly over impressive in their...

Kerry Retain their Division 1 status Kerry retained their Division 1 status in the Allianz Football League following a pulsating draw with Tyrone in Omagh on Sunday last (1-14 to 0-17). While the point gained was more than enough to stay up, on the other hand, the point lost saw them pipped for a semi final place on scoring difference by Donegal after Kerry, Donegal and Mayo all finished on 7 points. Still Kerry I am sure will feel happy enough with the point gained...
