I may be a week late, but its better than never.
Kerry were impressive, Mayo were so shoite it was embarrassing for them. Match was over in 8 minutes, the Mayo goals before half-time only ensured Kerry would come out fighting in the second half.
Galvin was immense, Darragh O’Se practically non-existent, Cooper looked back to some of his old form, Donaghy caused havoc until his knock, O’Sullivan justified his recall, Moynihan had one of his best days in a Kerry Jersey (its sad to see him retire, but he went out at the top). Brosnan played well when introduced for the ineffectual Tomas O’Se
MacDonald, Nallen, Heany were brutal, that Aidan O’Mahony (MacDonalds marker) got two points to MacDonalds none, sums up Mayo’s day.
The highlight of the Day was the minor match, it was one of the finest football matches I have ever seen, the fielding, pointtaking, tackling, running and all round play was a joy to behold. In my opinion it was a better match than the Dublin-Mayo senior semi-final. It was pure proper football and should be required viewing for any young footballer. Alas we lost the replay on Saturday but deserved to too. At least 3 of the minors should be Kerry seniors in a few years, Walsh, Curran and Moran. The future without Moynihan and possible Darragh O’Se may not be so bleak after all.
