Useful Information


In the last 3 Munster championship meetings between Cork and Kerry at Fitzgerald Stadium, Kerry won the 2011 and 2013 finals and drew the 2010 semi-final.

Cork’s last championship victory over Kerry in Killarney was the 1995 Munster Final on a scoreline of Cork 0-15 Kerry 1-9.

Kerry have never beaten Cork in the Munster Senior Football Championship at a neutral venue (it happened 3 times!). Cork have never beaten

Kerry in the All-Ireland Championship at Croke Park.

“Points win games”!! - Or so you would think looking at the recent record of Cork and Kerry. Neither County has recorded more than 1 goal in

Munster Senior Football Championship meetings since the 2000 Munster Semi-Final which Kerry won by 2-15 to 1-13. During the 16 subsequent

Munster Championship matches between the counties, they have combined to score a total of just 14 goals between them.

The highest score by an individual team in a Cork vs. Kerry Munster Senior Football Championship match was the 1976 Munster Final replay at

Pairc Ui Chaoimh which Kerry won by 3-20 to 2-19.

The highest margin of victory between the teams was in the first round match in 1937 played at Killarney with Kerry winning by 6-7 to 0-4 – a margin of 21 points.

In the 1890 Munster Senior Football Final, Laune Rangers (Kerry) and Midleton (Cork) were the finalists. The game was 57 minutes old, with the sides scoreless, when the ball burst and as there was no replacement ball the game could not continue and was abandoned.

In the 1893 Final, Laune Rangers (Kerry) and Dromtarriffe (Cork) were fixed on two occasions to play this final in Millstreet but the Kerry side did not travel. The game was fixed for a third time in Mallow but there was still no show from the Kerry side and Cork received a walkover.

Since 2000, Kerry have drawn as many matches in the Munster Senior Football Championship than they have lost, 5 draws (4 v Cork & 1 v Limerick) as compared to 5 defeats (all v Cork) in 41 matches played.

The average number of scores per game in the Munster Senior Football championship since 2008:
2008 - 21 scores per game; 2009 – 24; 2010 – 28; 2011 – 33; 2012 – 27; 2013 – 30.8, 2014 – 28.6; 2015 so far: 29.

The referee for the final is Pádraig Hughes from Armagh. Both semi-final referees also came from Ulster – Joe McQuillan (Cavan) for Clare v Cork and Ciaran Branagan (Down) for Kerry v Tipperary. Two Munster referees were in charge of the Ulster semi-finals – Páraig O’Sullivan
(Kerry) for Monaghan v Fermanagh and Rory Hickey (Clare) for Donegal v Derry.
