The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - SPORT -


As al­ways, Bryan Shee­han was a huge in­flu­ence for South Kerry and pro­vided much of the mo­men­tum for them. Gra­ham O Sul­li­van’Mark Grif­fin and Niall O’Shea also had their mo­ments for the losers, as did, such as Pa McCarthy, Shane O’Cal­laghan and Greg Ho­ran for the win­ners. How­ever, not sur­pris­ingly, the player who in­flu­enced the out­come most of all, once again was Kieran Don­aghy.


A save from point blank range at his near post by Rob­bie Mur­phy late on in pro­ceed­ings from Niall O’Shea was cru­cial, but ul­ti­mately it was Conor Jor­dan’s golden goal which im­pacted most on the out­come. At that par­tic­u­lar junc­ture Stacks were hang­ing on to a slen­der one point lead and com­ing as it did in the fi­nal few min­utes of nor­mal time, it was in the fi­nal anal­y­sis cru­cial to the fi­nal re­sult.


A Cham­pi­onship en­counter al­most in­evitably at­tracts a size­able crowd and with so much neg­a­tiv­ity about Gaelic foot­ball at the mo­ment last week­end’s crack­ing en­counter was money well spent for all those who trav­elled to the venue. But then it’s also about more than just the game. A trip down South is an op­por­tu­nity to take in the beau­ti­ful scenery on route and to en­joy the won­der­ful hospi­tal­ity of the host club.
