All Ireland Football Winners get their Medals

Kerry’s All Ireland Winning Minor and Junior Players were presented with their All Ireland and Munster medals by guest of honour Eamonn Fitzmaurice at a function in the Gleneagle Hotel before 300 last evening.

Minor Manager Jack O’Connor in his speech, made specific reference on more than one occasion to the heart stopping Munster semi final with Cork in Tralee, a game that went to extra time and one which defined their season. After that, the rest of the jig-saw fell into place. While he felt that it may be unfair to single out any specific player, he must he said, give credit to Mark O’Connor for his leadership throughout the year. He also gave due recognition to his backroom team all of whom were presented with a memento of the occasion.

Junior Manager, Stephen Wallace complimented his players for the attitude they had shown in relation to the Junior Championship. They had been under pressure on a couple of occasions, particularly against Cork in the 2nd quarter and Wexford in the semi final but on each occasion they had raised their game and they were convincing winners in the final against Mayo. The Junior backroom team also received presentations to mark the occasion.
