A motion tabled this week by Dr Crokes to change the method used by Kerry in deciding which senior club represents the county in the Munster Senior Club Championship found little favour with delegates at a county board meeting and was withdrawn.
The big crowd created a wonderful atmosphere in Ovens today, and while there was disappointment for the home fans in the 1,777 attendance, they couldn’t but be impressed with what Templenoe served up in this Munster club IFC semi-final.
They’ve produced legendary All-Ireland winning captains in Paidi Ó Sé, Tommy Doyle, Mickey Ned O’Sullivan and Pat Spillane, and forged special bonds in the process, but fabled Kerry football divisions like Kenmare and West Kerry may soon become redundant.

These are exciting times for Pat Spillane’s native Templenoe and the surrounding Kenmare District. But the Kingdom legend fears for the future of rural GAA areas like this corner of Kerry.
Nobody saw this coming, holders Kerry totally overwhelming Cork in the second half at Páirc Uí Rinn last evening to win back-to-back Munster junior football titles for the first time since 2002-’03, and record the Kingdom’s first championship win at the venue since their minor success seven years ago.
