Sean Walsh fails in his bid to become Uáchtarán Tofa CLGThere was a buzz in the air at the Croke Park Convention Centre on Friday evening last as delegates gathered from all parts of the globe to choose a new President elect of the GAA. There was only one topic doing the rounds as the voting strengths of each of the candidates were dissected over and over again. Aogán Ó Fearghaíl was the popular choice as favourite and when the votes were cast later in the evening that...

Kerry Fail to take chances and pay the priceWell Kerry are pointless after the second round of the Allianz League and one would have to concede that Sunday’s game turned out to be a deserved victory (0-16 to 0-14) for visitors Derry at Killarney’s Fitzgerald Stadium, simply because Derry took the majority of chances that came their way.It had all started so well for the home-side being three points up inside the opening five minutes and indeed there should have been more...

Dubs Down KerryKerry will certainly be disappointed with leaving at least a point behind them in Croke Park in the opening round of the Allianz League against Dublin on Saturday night last when they came out the wrong end of a 2-8 to 1-10 scoreline. Still, there were plenty positives for the Kerry Management given some fine displays by some of the newer players in particular. The final third of a game is never a good time to have a score drought and so it proved again on Saturday last...

Kerry face Dublin in Croke ParkFollowing the McGrath Cup action of recent weeks, attention now firmly turns to the Allianz League and Kerry could hardly be faced with a tougher task than taking on the All Ireland champions under lights in their home ground of Croke Park on Saturday evening next at 7pm. No doubt, the magical game between the sides in early September last will be recalled many times before throw-in on Saturday, but these are two different lineouts from that...

McGrath Cup Qtr FinalKerry eased their way into the semi finals of the McGrath Cup with a 0-17 to 0-8 victory over local rivals IT Tralee at the splendid John Mitchels complex in Tralee on Sunday afternoon. The match was played in horrendous weather conditions on a pitch that afterwards hardly showed any evidence of a game. While the final scoreline may suggest that Kerry had it all their own way, this was far from the case as IT Tralee were competitive to the end with their...

McGrath Cup Final“Job done” would probably be one way of describing Kerry’s McGrath Cup victory over Tipperary in poor conditions in Tipperary Town on Saturday last. With Darran O’Sullivan helping himself to 1-3, Kerry made all the running to run out comfortable winners 1-12 to 1-7. The four games in this competition have been ideal preparation for both management and players ahead of the commencement of the National League on Sunday next. This...

McGrath CupEamonn Fitzmaurice got his Kerry managerial career off to the perfect start when The Kingdom proved too strong for IT Tralee in the Munster GAA McGrath Cup preliminary round before a fine crowd in Fitzgerald Stadium on Saturday evening (4-22 to 0-10). Once Paul Geaney struck for the first of his two goals in the 5th minute the writing was on the wall for the students. Two further goals from the Geaneys, Michael and Paul, saw Kerry lead by 3-9 to 0-4 at...
