Our own Kerry

It’s like having our very own Kerry, only this time inside the county boundaries. In fact, today’s county championship success by Ballina Stephenites – where they beat Charlestown by 3-6 to 0-13 – was their 36th county title, which is one more Moclair cup victory than Kerry have Sam Maguires. And, of course, now they get to have a shot at a national title, where they’ll be aiming to repeat their All-Ireland heroics of 2005.

A decent run by the Stephenites could well shorten the yawning closed season for inter-county action that lies ahead and the fact that they also sport the Green and Red, as well as the fact that they have a number of the county panel within their ranks, make them a passable proxy for the county team over the next few months.
