COMMISERATIONS to the Minor footballers and management on their defeat by Dublin in last Sunday's Electric Ireland All Ireland minor football championship semi-final at Croke Park.
Dublin fully deserved their victory on the day, but all Kerry supporters are very proud of the way this year's minor football team represented the county all year. They worked hard and consistently made improvements. On Sunday they had an appalling start when conceding an early goal and continued to play with pride kicking some fine points from distance. They acquitted themselves well and showed great character.
Next year there are eight players from the 2012 squad eligible to play for Kerry at Minor level. Many of the older players will go on in the future to represent the Kingdom in the Green and Gold with distinction at Under 21 and senior level. Míle Buíochas to Manager, Mickey Ned O'Sullivan, and his selectors John O'Keeffe and Peter Keane, Ross Corbett assistant Physical trainer and coach Peter O'Brien and all the backroom team who worked so hard and successfully with these players.
