It’s Kerry V Limerick in the Munster Junior Football Semi final
The curtain raiser to the senior game on Sunday will see Kerry Juniors play Limerick in the Munster semi final. Kerry are of course the reigning Munster and All Ireland Junior Champions, and as such, the Kingdom have to field a whole new team this year. In keeping with policy over the last few years, the Kerry management are concentrating mostly on players who have left the U21 ranks in the last year or so making the lineout an U23 team for all intents and purposes.
Manager, Stephen Wallace (Ardfert), and his selectors, Timmy O’Sullivan (Kerins O’Rahillys), P.J. Reidy (Kenmare) and Brian Hickey (Skellig Rangers), have been restricted with the amount of time afforded to them to prepare the squad given the concentration on the senior and club championships over the last two months or so but that situation is par for the course at this level. Opponents, Limerick, have had the very obvious advantage of a game under their belt from the first round when they defeated Clare by 2-13 t0 1-13 at the Gaelic Grounds, but knowing Kerry manager Stephen Wallace, he will no doubt relish this latest challenge on the Kingdom’s home patch of Fitzgerald Stadium.

Throw-in for the game is at 1:30 with James Bermingham of Cork the referee. Cork and Tipperary play in the other semi final with the final fixed for June 30th.
