Kerry Reign SupremeKerry made it two titles on the trot when overwhelming Cork in Páirc Uí Chaoímh (0-24 to 0-12) in front of an attendance of 21,028 that scarcely could believe what they were seeing - in fact you have to go all the way back to 1977 to see a bigger Kerry victory over their biggest rivals at provincial level.
