As Kerry’s conquering heroes slip back to their scenic enclaves, club action now takes centre stage on our local airwaves. Over the Covid years, the buzz around the inter-county game faded somewhat, but once the terraces filled again this summer many became blinkered by Sam and Liam’s seductive powers.
