East Kerry are Champions after a 20 year wait!

Congratulations to all involved with East Kerry on becoming the Garvey’s Senior Football Champions for 2019! While it wasn’t the tight game that we were expecting, it was a still a tremendous game to watch with moments of individual footballing brilliance on both sides. Dr. Crokes are a superb side and were bidding for their 8th title this decade, which is some feat but on Sunday they were beaten by a well drilled youthful side. Austin Stacks will contest the Munster Club Championships as the County Championship was won by a divisional side.

Last Sunday’s final was very well attended with over 8000 people making their way to Austin Stack Park. ‘Man of the Match’ was Paudie Clifford (Fossa) and he was presented with a trophy and a voucher for the beautiful Dingle Skellig Hotel sponsored by the Garvey Group. The Bishop Moynihan Cup was presented to winning East Kerry Captain Dan O’Donoghue (Spa, Killarney) by County Board Chairman Tim Murphy.

The Curtain Raiser was the U15 Post Primary Munster Final between CBS Tralee and St Brendans Killarney. The Colm Taft Cup was presented by Colm Hayes to the winning Tralee CBS captain. It was a wonderful opportunity to showcase the talent and skill of our post primary students on County Final Day.

The County Executive wish to thank the following people who made the occasion a great success – our fantastic sponsors Garvey’s SuperValu, the Austin Stack Park Committee, Ger O’Mahony the groundsman, the match officials, the highly talented Killorglin & District Pipeband, the Gardaí & Stewards, the medical personnel, Coiste na nÓg for the production of a superb programme, the media and of course all four participating teams.
