NOT for the first time this year, Peter O'Brien was instrumental in signposting Kildorrery's path to victory, but he was quick to acknowledge it was essentially a determined team effort that derailed St Kieran's ambitions in the second half.
"Everyone played a part, and we knew at half time that nothing less than a fifteen-man performance would be enough if we were to have any chance of reeling St Kieran's in.
"It's a dream come true to win a Munster title, it means we have a great opportunity to get to Croke Park, and we are eagerly looking forward to playing in an All-Ireland semi final next month.
"We have endured a lot of heartache over the last few years in county football finals, so we are able to appreciate what has been achieved this year all the more.
"We have now won three championship trophies, and hopefully we will be good enough to win another in the New Year," said O'Brien, who confirmed that his brother Andrew, the team's regular centre back last season, will rejoin the squad for the All-Ireland series, having spent the summer domiciled in Australia.
"Andrew is due home next weekend, and after we get a few weeks training into him, he should be ready to play a part in our bid for All-Ireland glory," stated Kildorrery's prolific marksman.
