Abbeydorney last won the County title in 1974 (also their last appearance in a final) when they beat Austin Stack's in the final and they will be looking to bridge that 31 year gap when they face near neighbours Lixnaw in the final.

UNSUNG HERO OF KERRY G.A.A
Congratulations to Sonny Egan, Garrynagore on reaching the top five in the recent Radio Kerry and Bank of Ireland sponsored competition. This honour was richly deserved as he has been the dynamo that has kept underage hurling alive and thriving in Crotta for many years. Long before the mobile phone Sonny could be seen travelling the highways and Byways on his trusted Honda 50 bringing news of games and Fixtures coming up to the youth of the area. His balancing act of carrying twenty Hurleys and fifteen helmets on the same machine bewildered and puzzled many. One of his proudest moments was when he led the 12 pioneering team to the Glens of Antrim to win the Tipperary Shield in the Feis Na Gleann competition. He has attended hundreds of meetings down through the years and the information he brought back was always factual and correct. He has given many years of enjoyment and happiness to the vast numbers who have visited his Rambling House He has been most generous with his time and efforts in helping to make our area a better place to live for both young and old. Long may he continue.

The trainers have received great support from Crotta Bord Na Nog committee and their Chairman Sonny Egan has provided awing for wherever is required e.g. Helmets, hurley's etc.
The following players took part on the day were: Jordan Conway, Jack Mc Kenna, Darren Egan, Adam O'Sullivan, Aaron Murrane, Barry Mahony, Adrian Mahony, Sean O'Donoghue, Thomas Quinlan, Jamie O'Sullivan, Brendan Conway, John Quilter, Donnacha Brosnan, Darragh Behan, Patrick Fahy, Mark Egan, Dylan Mc Elligott, Raymond Nolan, Dominic Nolan, Tommy Nickolson, Jack Sheehan, Muirean Mc Keanna and Aoife Behan.
