So how many ‘clubs’ could represent Kerry in Munster?

Im PRO with lancashire GAA. We hosted Kerry in the All Ireland Semi-Final in 2016. We held them to a draw at half time. They got three goals at start of second half to pull away. Adrian spillane got man of the match. . Jason Foley also played that day.

Two Kerry clubs, Skellig Rangers and brosna have beaten the Lancashire Champions, John mitchels twice, in All-Ireland’s junior Championship Final by narrow margins.

One of the 8 senior clubs represents Kerry in Munster senior championship.

Kerry have 16 intermediate, 16 premier junior (the winner of which represents Kerry in the Munster junior championship), 16 junior teams and 12 novice teams.

That's 68 stand-alone clubs.  Only senior, intermediate and premier junior winners go on to Munster, so technically 40 clubs are eligible to represent Kerry.

A good footballer from any of the 60 non-senior clubs will be able to play in the county championship with one of the 9 divisional sides, which is the whole point of having divisions.

They (Templenoe) played Ardnaree in the final that year and gave them a horrible embarrassing beating.  As an area Templenoe were/are punching above their weight in the Kerry League and Championship. But to let what is essentially a Intermediate B team into the All Ireland Junior series is a farce.

Beat lancashire and British champions, John Mitchels of Liverpool 2- 08 v 0-06. Tadgh morley was the captain. Gavin Crowley Player as did the  spillanes if I remember rightly. They brought some support. I got to interview pat Spillane.  Got

And it got them 37 All Irelands.

The Kerry boys will tell you it's 38.  ;)

15 Dec results in Kerry divisions:

North Kerry final:  St. Senan's 2-6 Brosna 0-5

East Kerry final:  Killarney Legion 1-18 Dr. Crokes 3-6

South Kerry semi-finals:  St. Mary's 2-6 Valentia 1-8; Dromid Pearses 1-8 Renard 0-8

Remaining fixture:

South Kerry final: St. Mary's v Dromid Pearses next Sunday 22 Dec in Portmagee 2pm.



EDIT:  Today in Rathmore, Austin Stacks beat Rathmore in the County League Div 1 final on penalties (4-3) after extra time.  From next year onward, there will be no Div 1 final...team with most points after 11 games wins the league.  Play-off if teams tied on points (no score difference rule).

I'll be down in Portmagee next Sunday at the Dromid game, hoping they can spring the upset. The Marys will be favourites, but they scraped by Valentia.

I may have missed this so apologies if I have. My question relates to the Kerry Divisional championships. Do all clubs in a Divisional area, regardless off status (senior/intermediate/junior/novice) enter? Are the championships a straight knockout competition?

All clubs are in the divisional championship Seanie.  Straight knock-out (no back door), but there is often some sort of seeding involved.  In East Kerry, as I recall, the four semi-finalists one year get a bye to the quarter finals the following year and are kept separate in the quarter-final draw.  That may or may not still be in place, but most divisions have some sort of seeding to allow a few preliminary games earlier in the year.

Thanks for that.

Draw in Portmagee:  St. Mary's 1-6 Dromid Pearses 0-9. 

Awaiting Az's report...seems there was some after game activity on this one.  No details so far, but could the photoshopped arm make a Christmas return for Dromid?

Edit:  Replay on 19 January due to Kerry team holiday in the meantime.

So as far as I can see Divisional winners 2019:
North Kerry: St Senans
East Kerry: Legion
South Kerry: Dromid
West Kerry: Dingle
Mid Kerry: Milltown/Castlemaine

Are there divisional championships for Tralee, Kenmare and St Brendan's Districts?

Fantastic win for Dromid. I was at the drawn game, when Dromid started brightly, but fell behind against the wind and looked like they were in big trouble, only for Mary's to withdraw into their shell, and invite Dromid on. A couple of late frees forced the replay.

The replay looked like a very nip and tuck affair on twitter, and from reports. Extra time, though, and Dromid seemed to be the ones with the legs and with the possession. Great win for my brother in law at 43 or 44 years of age, came off the bench :)
