The Kingdom is Back

After a five year barren spell Kerry on the weekend before Kilkenny took the all-Ireland Hurling final won a 37th title at Croke Park. In a tightly fought match in which Donegal hit the post in the dying seconds while going for goal, which would have levelled the contest, the men from the Kingdom overcame the tournament favourites and ensured the return of Sam to its Kerry 'home.'





With a new manager and a team considered to be in the rookie division, few gave the Kerry men much chance when they set out on their challenging journey to Croke Park. However with some help from the Donegal keeper who had a disastrous day between the sticks this Kerry side edged in front and held on to secure victory.
