There are four Kerry GAA teams out, flying the flag, in various parts of the country this weekend. We wish them all well of course.
However, we have a special interest in the Kerry junior football team as they prepare to take on Cavan in the All-Ireland final in O’Moore Park in Portlaoise at 3pm today.
The team is captained, from his corner-forward berth, by the dynamic Desmonds clubman, Thomas Hickey.
The brave boys of Cordal are represented by Philip O’Connor at No. 10 on the half-forward line and the bench includes the talented keeper, Seán Óg Ó Ciardubháin and Knocknagoshel’s Edmund Walsh.
Good luck to the Kerry minor and senior football teams in Croke Park tomorrow and to the Kerry U-21 hurlers as they travel to Ennis today to take on Roscommon in the Bord Gais Energy All Ireland B Hurling Championship Semi Final at 2pm in Cusack Park, Ennis.
The Kerry Junior Football team is scheduled to line out as follows:
1. Shane Murphy, Kilcummin; Fionán Clifford, Waterville; 3. Kevin O’Dwyer, Waterville; 4. Danny Wrenn, Tarbert; 5. Greg Gibson, Waterville; 6. Denis Daly, St. Mary’s; 7. Gavin Crowley, Templenoe; 8.
