Garvey’s SuperValu Senior County Championship
This year’s County Final which is fixed for Saturday week in Austin Stack Park, Tralee at 7pm will be an all-district affair featuring East Kerry and Mid Kerry.
East Kerry were first to secure their place in the final with a win over St Brendan’s. On the night, St Brendan’s never really got going. Towards the end, Diarmuid O Connor was moved which made them more of a scoring threat but it just wasn’t their night. East Kerry had to contest the semi-final without David Clifford but in his absence up stepped Evan Cronin, Paudie Clifford and Dara Moynihan among others. They put on a strong display and with David back, they will be confident going into the final.
The second semi-final was one for the ages and will live long in the memory. It was end to end stuff and full credit to Mid Kerry and Dr Crokes for going at it and leaving everything on the field. It was tense and competitive but was played in the right spirit. With all the twists and turns, it was very difficult to call a winner. With minutes left in additional time, Gavin O Grady got the equalising goal and Jack O’Connor’s point was the winning score.
The County final will be live-streamed on the Kerry GAA website. There will be interviews and special guests along with full live coverage and commentary from Gary O’Sullivan and Seán O’Sullivan. The game can be purchased for 10 Euro and can be watched worldwide.
We wish the best of luck to both sides in what promises to be a thrilling encounter!
