Kenmare District will meet Dr Crokes in Kerry county final

EX-Dr Crokes stalwart John Galvin will face his old club in next Sunday's Kerry SFC final after guiding Kenmare District to a thrilling 0-20 to 0-19 victory over Rathmore in Sunday's semi-final.

Kenmare District will meet Dr Crokes in Kerry county final

The Kenmare division led 0-18 to 0-12 with 20 minutes remaining but had to withstand an admirable comeback from Rathmore before edging home.

Galvin was an All-Ireland winning midfielder with Dr Crokes in 1992, and will face his old Killarney friends in the decider after Dr Crokes saw off Dingle 1-15 to 0-15 in Sunday's other semi final in Killarney.

The deciding goal was poked home by Eoin Brosnan in the 38th minute, and it was nip and tuck until the final few minutes when Micheal Burns, Colm Cooper and keeper Shane Murphy, with a 45, pointed Crokes into the final.

Kenmare's joy at reaching their first final since 1987 was tempered by late injuries to Brian Crowley (collarbone) and Adrian Spillane (hamstring) which could rule them out of the final.
