Munster SFC Final Replay – Kerry 1-11 Cork 1-6

Kerry defeated Cork by 1-11 to 1-6 in the Munster Senior Football Championship Replay on Saturday July 18th at Fitzgerald Stadium Killarney.

Munster SFC Final: Kingdom see off Rebels again


Report from

Paul Geaney’s goal with 20 minutes to go was the key score as Kerry defeated Cork to win their 77th Munster title in the Munster SFC Final replay on Saturday night in Killarney.

On a wet, dark evening at Fitzgerald Stadium, Kerry ground down a competitive Cork side in a match that was not conducive to a good game of football.

There was just a point between them at the break, Kerry leading by one, and the sides were level with 20 minutes to go when a quick thinking Colm Cooper set up Geaney for the vital goal.

Cooper took a quick free into Donnchadh Walsh, Walsh’s shot broke to Geaney and Geaney rattled home to the net. That put Kerry three ahead, and Cork didn’t actually score again as Kerry hit the final two points of the game in a dour closing quarter to win by five.

Kerry had Stephen O’Brien sent off late on, but it mattered little as the Kingdom were very comfortable at the end. Cork only scored two points in the entire second half, and overall, Kerry were much improved from their below par display in the drawn game two weeks ago. Kerry led by a point at half-time after a first half that struggled to get going in light of the poor weather conditions, with wind and rain prevailing in Killarney.

The sides shared the first four points, Colm O’Neill and Donncha O’Connor slotting frees for Cork either side of Kerry points from Walsh and Bryan Sheehan (free). Sheehan’s freetaking, as ever, was a joy to behold in the first half as he hit five placed balls between the posts. His second followed two smart breakaway Kerry points from Geaney and that left a sharp looking Kingdom 0-5 to 0-2 ahead after 14 minutes.

Cork responded quickly with points from O’Neill and Brian O’Driscoll, but two frees from Sheehan – including an absolute stunner from 60 metres – left Kerry 0-7 to 0-4 ahead with five minutes left to the break. Then came the Cork goal. The Rebels held possession intelligently in the middle third before a sharp ball inside found O’Neill. In an instant, O’Neill released to the onrushing Paul Kerrigan, and the Nemo Rangers flyer brushed off the attention of two diving Kerry defenders to lash past Brendan Kealy into the roof of the net.

Cork dominated the closing minutes of the first half after the goal and they had their chances to go ahead. However, Kerry completed the first half scoring with another Sheehan free. Cork drew level early in the second half through Colm O’Neill, but Jonathan Lyne restored Kerry’s lead shortly afterwards. Cooper came on 10 minutes into the second half but Cork levelled immediately after the eight-time All Star’s arrival, Kevin O’Driscoll landing a superb point.

However, on 50 minutes came the vital Kerry goal. David Moran’s long punt forward resulted in a scoreable free for Kerry, which Cooper held, seemingly set to shoot for a point. Then, in a moment not entirely unlike Mikey Sheehy’s 1978 stroke of genius against Dublin, Cooper took the free quickly and found Walsh.

Walsh was clean through on Ken O’Halloran and he fired at goal. The shot ricocheted into the arms of Geaney, who showed great composure to put the ball past Michael Shields, who was trying to block on the line. Cork never recovered from this concession. Although Sheehan and Geaney were withdrawn before the end, Kerry found two points to extend their lead, with James O’Donoghue landing his only score of the game to leave them five clear with just five minutes to go. O’Donoghue had been superbly marshalled by James Loughrey throughout.
Paul Galvin’s entrance as a substitute before the end provided the biggest cheer of the day for Kerry, the Finuge man making his first appearance since ending his retirement in March.

Things ended somewhat sourly for Kerry with the dismissal of O’Brien, but the prevailing feeling for the Kingdom at the end was probably relief. They can now look forward to the All-Ireland quarter-finals in a few weeks, whereas Cork must beat Kildare in Round 4A next weekend to seal a place in the last eight.

Paul Geaney goal helps Kerry claim Munster crown

Kerry 1-11 Cork 1-6

Report from

Colm Cooper came off the bench to set up the crucial score of the game as All-Ireland champions Kerry captured their 77th Munster SFC crown in a replay played in a downpour at Fitzgerald Stadium in Killarney.

Cooper dispatched a quick free which led to Paul Geaney finding the net and taking the sting out of the Cork challenge after another good contest. The goal pushed the Kingdom three points in front and Cork never recovered and did not score again after that. Indeed, they managed only two points in the second-half and went scoreless from the 46th minute to the end and will now need to regroup for the qualifiers.

The accuracy of Bryan Sheehan was decisive in Kerry opening up a 0-07 to 0-04 lead after half an hour, but they were rocked when Cork countered and Colm O’Neill set up Paul Kerrigan and he blasted to the net for the seventh goal the Kingdom have conceded in this year’s championship. Sheehan edged the Kingdom back in front just before the interval with his fifth free to lead by 0-08 to 1-04 at the break.
O’Neill had given Cork a good start with the opening point after two minutes before Donnchadh Walsh and Sheehan got the All-Ireland champions ahead.

Donncha O’Connor tied the sides with a free and they were level four times during the opening half as the huge crowd of 32,233 enjoyed the exchanges despite the constant wind and rain. Paul Geaney landed two good points for Kerry but O’Neill and Brian O’Driscoll responded for the Rebels to tie the sides again after 17 minutes.

Three frees in-a-row from Sheehan saw Kerry open up a lead but then O’Neill put Kerrigan through and he shot home a fine goal. O’Neill tied the match four minutes after the restart before wing-back Jonathan Lyne went forward to edge Kerry back in front.

Kerry manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice then introduced Colm ‘Gooch’ Cooper for Kieran Donaghy, but it was Cork who levelled when Kevin O’Driscoll landed an excellent effort from 45 metres to tie the sides a sixth time. But then Cooper made an immediate impact, taking a quick free which put Donnchadh Walsh through and while his effort was saved by Ken O’Halloran, the rebound fell to Paul Geaney and he sidestepped Michael Shields to shoot to the net from close range.

That put the Kingdom 1-09 to 1-06 in front with 20 minutes remaining and they expected that lead with efforts from Paul Geaney and James O’Donoghue to lead by five. Kerry drafted in Paul Galvin for his first action in almost two years when he came on for Walsh four minutes from time as Kerry supporters began celebrating the retention of their Munster crown. However, they finished with 14 when Stephen O’Brien picked up a second yellow card in the closing stages

Useful Information

There have been 12 Munster championship replays between Cork and Kerry with Cork winning 7 of the replays compared to 5 for Kerry. There have been 3 replays at Killarney with Kerry winning 2 (1961 and 1982) and Cork winning the other in 1987. The last 4 replays have been at Páirc Uí Chaoimh with Cork winning 3 (2002, 2006 and 2009) to Kerry’s 1 victory in 2010.

In the last 4 Munster championship meetings between Cork and Kerry at Fitzgerald Stadium, Kerry won the 2011 and 2013 finals and drew the 2010 semi-final and 2015 final.

Cork’s last championship victory over Kerry in Killarney was the 1995 Munster Final on a scoreline of Cork 0-15 Kerry 1-9.

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 until this year’s drawn Munster final looking at the recent record of Cork and Kerry. Neither County had 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 17 subsequent Munster Championship matches between the counties, they combined to score a total of just 14 goals between them in the first 16 and then in the drawn game there were 5 scored 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: 29.2.
