Kerry 0-26, Down 2-12
Kerry Senior hurlers recorded a victory over Down on Sunday 28th April in  Austin Stack’s Park, Tralee.
The victory puts them into a properly strong position now to challenge for a place in the Joe McDonagh Cup final.
They will be expected to see off Meath on the final day of the campaign for six points, meaning a result against either Laois next weekend, or Offaly a fortnight later would likely see them into the final.
The Crotta hurling club was represented by Bill Keane and Tomas O’Connor. Kerry will play Laois in Round 3 of the Joe McDonagh Cup on Saturday May 4th at 3pm in Austin Stack Park Tralee. Best wishes to the Kerry players and their mentors.
