Knocknagree v Dromid Pearses in Munster JAFC Final in Mallow on Sunday week.

Quote from John Fintan Daly in The Examiner today -

“Dromid Pearses will be a tough test. It is another Cork v Kerry final and we carry the county’s hopes with us. Cork haven’t beat Kerry in I think 20 visits including the Mallow v An Ghaeltacht game last week. This will be number 21 and we will try to change what has been a very boring pattern.”

I assume he means no Cork victory in twenty meetings with Kerry opposition at Junior & Intermediate level.

In fairness, the way the Kerry championships are structured, with so few senior clubs, it's little wonder they're so successful at intermediate & junior level. They're not exactly competing like with like once they reach Munster/All Ireland level.

That said, there's no reason Knocknagree shouldn't give a good account of themselves, seeing as Dromid were pushed to the pin of their collar by both Naomh Eoin & Galtee Gaels.

They are right though, we have far too many senior clubs. Only a fraction of them are senior standard

Agreed, the problem is on our side, not theirs.

What kind of bugs me though, is that their senior hurling champions are allowed to play in the Munster Intermediate Championship. This is a nonsense for me when you see some of the hammerings the Kerry teams dish out in the football.

If we examine the number of people our neighbours have in positions of influence in Croke Park and more importantly in the
national media, it's no wonder they can get things organised to suit their own ends.
On top of that, they have at least four or five lads reffing every match. Not literally of course, but note the 'gang bang' on
poor Sean Lonergan last Sunday when he gave a 50/50 decision to Nemo.
I have never seen any other county players do what Kerry players do in relation to contesting decisions that go against them. Invariably
this will give them an edge at some stage in a game cause referees are only human after all. ( Yes I know that sounds stupid :lol: )

Knocknagree win the Munster Championship, 1-17 to 2-11 against Dromid Pearses. This is quite unusual - 2 wins in a row against Kerry opposition.
Well done to them
