Our All-Ireland semi-final replay with the young Kerry aristocrats will take place at Cusack Park, Ennis, next Saturday with a 3.30pm throw-in (so says RTE). I think that’s a good decision from our point of view as there’s likely to be a far smaller crowd from Kerry at it (the senior replay has been fixed for Croke Park the following day as part of a triple-header featuring the other minor and senior semi-finals). The tighter and more down-at-heel surroundings at Cusack Park might suit our lads better and the fact that the young Kerry royals won’t get to strut their stuff in front of their own supporters at HQ has got to be a plus for us. (Remember that 2006 minor replay with Roscommon where the only ones there from Kerry were the lads on the pitch?) Now, all we need is a half-decent ref and we’re motoring.
