WHILE the outcome of last night CCC's meeting in relation to a host of fixture dilemmas wasn't be known at the time of going to print, the identities of four of Kerry's five representatives in the Munster Football and Hurling Club Championships will also have to be determined in the coming weeks.
Kerry's representatives in the football competitions are the ones that will take a bit of time to find out. The identity of Kerry's representatives in the Munster Senior Club Football Championship are the ones that will take up the most immediate concern with the county's representatives due to travel to Clare on Sunday, November 4. At present Dr Crokes are the team on standby having won the Senior Club Championship back in May, however, with the County Senior Football Final set for the previous Sunday (October 28) at the time of writing, the outcome might not be known until seven days beforehand.
If the Killarney side were not involved in that game and it was a club vs. district final, then they would need the district to win to be certain of their place. If it's an all club final with the Killarney side involved, they need to win to make certain of their position. An all club final not involving the Crokes means they will not be going into Munster, however, an all district final confirms their status as Kerry's senior representatives.
Kerry has until November 11 to declare its representatives in the Intermediate Football competition which will be against either the Waterford or Limerick representatives. The game between Spa and Finuge will all depend on the progress of Lixnaw hurlers and Feale Rangers footballers through their various competitions, but it could very well be a hectic schedule for the North Kerry men if they keep winning in every competition. Kerry's representatives in the Intermediate Hurling Championship have to be known a week earlier on November 4 with either the Cork or Limerick representatives the opposition and either Ballyduff or Lixnaw will have that honour. The Junior Club Final date between Kenmare and Na Gaeil is likely to depend on Kenmare District's progress in the County Championship, the Munster date isn't as pressing however with that down for November 18, but Kenmare will be in Munster Club Hurling action anyway this year as their win in the County Intermediate Hurling Championship means they will play either the Limerick or Tipperary representatives.
Co-incidentally enough that is the same date as the football fixture is down for and Kerry's Junior Football representatives are due to travel to Waterford on that date.
