Well done Corofin. Did Liam Silke play the second half?
No didnít come out after half time.
Not too surprised given the belt he took.

Yes its a pure football academy. Defenders know how to defend and forwards can score.

I much prefer Corafins style of football. More attractive

Strange that Kerry cannot replicate the success at Senior of their Intermediate and Junior teams on the All Ireland stage?

How come?

Did they not win it as recently as a couple of years ago?

One title in 22 years! Kerry intermediate and Junior Champions win Club All Irelands nearly every year! Surely when they have different clubs at such a high level winning AI's at the lower grades their Senior teams should be unbeatable.  It's a mystery? What's going on?

Their junior and intermediate representatives from kerry aren't actually junior or intermediate clubs?

How could that be? Did they not win their respective titles in Kerry?

And remarkably they're the last Kerry club other than Crokes to win the senior club All Ireland. Fallen a long way since.

Have Waterville fallen badly in recent years?  I remember Micko giving a talk at our club centenary a few years back and he was talking about Waterville being senior and division 1 yet made up of only three families.
