Brosna team manager Jimmy Keane lauded the individual display of star forward Adam Barry, the former Kerry minor who captivated the large Mallow attendance with a masterclass of shooting.

Keane lauds shooting masterclass of star forward Barry

Keane, who double-jobs as chairman, described Barry’s performance as “brilliant” but was also fulsome in his praise of the Brosna panel who’ve managed to pull off a Munster title having played for six consecutive Sundays.

“Adam was absolutely brilliant for us today,” beamed Keane. “The points he kicked would grace any arena or any All-Ireland final. Anyone who was here today to witness his display were the lucky ones.

“I’m delighted for Adam. He’s absolutely a 100% genuine guy, never misses training, and puts in a whole lot of effort. Today is a fantastic day and I’m delighted for Adam.” He added: “It’s an absolutely unbelievable feeling to be Munster champions. We were put to the pin of our collar by a fantastic Glin team here today. They ran at us and they got the goals when they needed them. Fair play to our boys; we just dug in, never threw in the towel at any stage, battled away and thankfully we got over the line.

“Overall I thought we were a bit sluggish today; we have to put it down to playing every week of the last six weeks. It’s fine when you’re winning but it’s taking its toll on the boys at this stage. They can’t keep going forever, but having said that, Glin were fantastic, too.

“I suppose if you could take the positives out of it, the goal they got in the first half, we showed great resilience to recover from it; they hit us early in the second half and we recovered from that again.

“We finished the stronger which is a great testament to the boys. They keep battling away to the end as they do in all Kerry championship games.”
