As much as Kerry would like to forget it, Clare did beat them in 1992.

The official match programme for yesterday's Munster semi-final in Killarney listed 'previous meetings' between the counties and claimed that Kerry had won 20 games and drew once, but the list failed to recognise Clare's Munster final win of 1992.

The Banner bridged a 75-year gap to their last provincial crown with a 2-10 to 0-12 victory over the Kingdom 26 years ago.

Tomás Ó Sé joked on The Sunday Game last night: "Jesus Des, you can't have negativity going into a game. You have to go out positive.

"Whoever printed that is getting a rollicking down in Killarney but they are probably patting him on the back."

Kerry moved on to 21 wins yesterday with a facile 0-32 to 0-10 triumph.

Here's a reminder of that famous day in Clare football:
