IF St Kierans are trying to sneak into a county final under the radar, then Dingle aren't exactly banging the drum on their march through this county final either.
Both sides would have been given due recognition and more than a fighting chance at the start of the county championship.
Of course, defending champions Dr Crokes, last year's beaten finalists Mid Kerry, along with Austin Stacks, Rathmore, Kerins O'Rahillys, Feale Rangers and South Kerry would still have been the teams to capture the imagination.
Now, all of those - bar the champions - have fallen by the wayside and either Dingle or St Kierans will make it all the way to county final day.
Dingle should be the slight favourite to get there. They are the club team; even if the last decade has been slightly dominated by divisional teams.
They have been here before very recently and they have come through a ringer of a quarter-final that, in the end, should stand to them if, and when, the pressure comes on again.
By contrast, St Kierans have had somewhat plainer sailing through their quarter-final, and divisional teams can often be at a disadvantage against club teams when it comes to preparations.
Not so St Kierans, though. Manager Martin Horgan is doing a great job in balancing the demands of players' club commitments with their duty to the district team, and Horgan will openly admits that training is going as well as it could be.
An audit of their personnel shows Kerry juniors and under-21 players throughout the team, as well as senior player Seamus Scanlon who is playing some of the best football of his career.
Seamus Moynihan is known to have imparted some advice to the panel last week and anything a legend of the game such as Moynihan can bring to the table can only benefit a squad like this.
The Walsh brothers, the Galvin twins, the Hickeys, Eamon John O'Donoghue and Scanlon are big game players who will stick to the script that Horgan has them playing to.
Dingle are not without their big game players either, with the Geaney trio of Mikey, Daithi and Paul the three that St Kierans will really have to watch.
Paul is the chief scorer from play, with Daithi able to convert frees from all over. Mikey is more the play maker around the middle third, but they will have to get more support from their colleagues, especially from midfield where Colm Benny Moriarty and Dara O'Sullivan struggled for long periods against Feale Rangers.
Defensively, both teams are tidy, with a combination of attacking half backs (Padraig Reidy and James Walsh for St Kierans; Brendan Kelliher and Johnny B Brosnan for Dingle) and sticky, tight marking full backs.
Paul and Daithi Geaney could notch ten points between them and throw in Billy O'Connor's goal threat and Dingle could post 15 or 16 points.
Mike Coakley, Edmund Walsh and Tom McGoldrick will supply the majority of St Kierans scores, with Aidan Breen carrying the goal threat.
Verdict Dingle have to be considered strongly for the win here and Paul and Daithi Geaney could cause untold trouble for the St Kierans defence. Still, there is a very real sense of purpose about St Kierans this year and it all seems to be building to a place in the county final, at least. The district team get a tentative nod.
