Munster SFC Final: Kerry rescue draw in thriller against Cork
GAA Munster Senior Football Championship Final: Kerry 2-15 Cork 3-12
By Éamonn Murphy at Fitzgerald Stadium, Killarney for GAA.ie
Kerry survived a storming second-half performance from Cork to snatch a draw in the Munster football final in Killarney. Corner-back Fionn Fitzgerald curled over a booming equaliser deep into stoppage time after Colm O’Neill missed a 45 which would have given the Rebels their first victory in Fitzgerald Stadium in 20 years.
A brilliantly cool finish from raiding wing-back Barry O’Driscoll had put Brian Cuthbert’s side ahead after 62 minutes, 3-12 to 2-14. And after Cork survived a missed goal chance from sub Paul Geaney – with the subsequent 45 sent astray by James O’Donoghue – they looked on the verge of regaining the Munster crown for the first time since 2012.
Cork were superb for much of the second half, though a James O’Donoghue penalty after 53 minutes kept Kerry in contention. The Kingdom lost David Moran to a black card as the Rebels gained a firm grip in midfield where Alan O’Connor justified his recent comeback from retirement by lording midfield. A clever flicked goal from Donncha O’Connor sparked a run of scores as Cork raced into a lead 2-10 to 1-10 lead. Colm O’Neill (2), Barry O’Driscoll and Kevin O’Driscoll fired four points in a row.
Kingdom manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice introduced a raft of subs including Colm Cooper – to a predictably rapturous reception from the home faithful at a packed Fitzgerald Stadium – who curled a lovely point, but even when Kerry regained the advantage, 2-14 to 2-12 after scores from subs Geaney and Anthony Maher, Cork refused to wilt.
Then came Barry O’Driscoll’s goal and the late drama in what had been an enthralling joust. Brian Cuthbert’s charges were well set up from the off, and with the wind to their backs led 1-1 to no score after nine minutes. O’Neill’s goal was a superb team move, initiated by Eoin Cadogan’s interception. Mark Collins found Donncha O’Connor with a neat kick-pass and he teed up O’Neill to palm home.
However, Kerry’s first goal was a cruel blow to the Rebels, who had looked in control at that early stage with Paul Kerrigan operating efficiently as a sweeper. Rookie Stephen Cronin put Michael Shields under pressure with a risky handpass and the Cork captain was stripped of the ball, with Kieran Donaghy gleefully burying the chance.
It was nip and tuck across the first 25 minutes with the sides level 1-4 apiece but then Kerry switched to a man-to-man system they gained the upper hand, while the loss of Paul Kerrigan to a black card was keenly felt. Barry John Keane was tormenting Cork with his movement and neat shooting, while O’Donoghue became more prominent too.
Kerry struck five points in-a-row, though Barry O’Driscoll was denied a goal by a smart stop from Brendan Kealy in the middle of this sequence. Donncha O’Connor did clip over a point to make it 1-9 to 1-5 at half-time, and given Kerry would have the breeze and their bench was loaded with talent, it looked grim for Cork at that juncture. However, the Rebels refused to give up and ended up departing Killarney filled with regret at their fifth draw on enemy soil since 2002.

Kerry have never beaten Cork in the Munster Senior Football Championship at a neutral venue (it happened 3 times!). Cork have never beaten Kerry in the All-Ireland Championship at Croke Park.
“Points win games”!! – Or so you would think looking at the recent record of Cork and Kerry. Neither County has recorded more than 1 goal in Munster Senior Football Championship meetings since the 2000 Munster Semi-Final which Kerry won by 2-15 to 1-13. During the 16 subsequent Munster Championship matches between the counties, they have combined to score a total of just 14 goals between them.
The highest score by an individual team in a Cork vs. Kerry Munster Senior Football Championship match was the 1976 Munster Final replay at Pairc Ui Chaoimh which Kerry won by 3-20 to 2-19.
The highest margin of victory between the teams was in the first round match in 1937 played at Killarney with Kerry winning by 6-7 to 0-4 – a margin of 21 points.
In the 1890 Munster Senior Football Final, Laune Rangers (Kerry) and Midleton (Cork) were the finalists. The game was 57 minutes old, with the sides scoreless, when the ball burst and as there was no replacement ball the game could not continue and was abandoned.
In the 1893 Final, Laune Rangers (Kerry) and Dromtarriffe (Cork) were fixed on two occasions to play this final in Millstreet but the Kerry side did not travel. The game was fixed for a third time in Mallow but there was still no show from the Kerry side and Cork received a walkover.
Since 2000, Kerry have drawn as many matches in the Munster Senior Football Championship than they have lost, 5 draws (4 v Cork & 1 v Limerick) as compared to 5 defeats (all v Cork) in 41 matches played.
The average number of scores per game in the Munster Senior Football championship since 2008:
2008 – 21 scores per game; 2009 – 24; 2010 – 28; 2011 – 33; 2012 – 27; 2013 – 30.8, 2014 – 28.6; 2015 so far: 29.
