Dr Crokes will play in Mun­ster as O’Rahillys face rel­e­ga­tion play-off

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - SPORT -

REIGN­ING pro­vin­cial and All-Ire­land champions, Dr Crokes, will rep­re­sent Kerry in the Mun­ster Club Cham­pi­onship at the end of the month re­gard­less of how they do in next week’s County SFC fi­nal against South Kerry.

As the club team to sur­vive the fur­thest into the county cham­pi­onship, Dr Crokes will get the chance to de­fend their Mun­ster and All-Ire­land ti­tle, start­ing with a quar­ter-fi­nal against the Tip­per­ary champions on Oc­to­ber 29.

Crokes will play South Kerry in Sun­day week’s county fi­nal in Tralee after the for­mer beat West Kerry and the lat­ter saw off Kerins O’Rahillys in last Saturday’s semi-fi­nals.

After be­ing so close to reach­ing the SFC fi­nal O’Rahillys must now play Kil­cum­min in a rel­e­ga­tion play-off with the loser drop­ping down to the Intermediate cham­pi­onship next year.

In a painful twist, O’Rahillys will fea­ture on the county fi­nal day billing as the rel­e­ga­tion play-off will be the cur­tain-raiser to the Dr Crokes ver­sus South Kerry fi­nal.
