Kerry minors advance to the Munster final
Kerry 2-17 Cork 1-10 – For the second time in as many months, a Kerry team travelled to Páirc Uí Rinn and all but obliterated the home outfit. There was 16-points between the two counties at the end of the Munster U21 final in late April and while this Munster minor semi-final win wasn’t as comprehensive, it was every bit as impressive.
On the team from the district were Barry Mahony (St. Senans) and Adam Donoghue (Castleisland Desmonds)
