THE GAME IN 60 SECONDS
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.
