It is a big game for the Kerry minor hurlers on Sunday next 18th October as they take on Tipperary in LIT (Limerick) in the Electric Ireland Munster Minor Hurling Championship at 1.00p.m.
The Kerry side would have been hopeful of some support ahead of the Level 3 Covid restrictions which put all inter county games into a “behind closed doors” policy but there is good news for supporters today with Munster GAA confirming that all games in the upcoming Electric Ireland Munster Minor Hurling and Football Championships will be streamed live. We wish the Kerry Hurlers and their management the best of luck.

KERRY HURLING ALL STAR AWARDS 2020
Congratulations to Crotta Senior hurler Sean Weir who was selected at Corner back on The Kerry Senior Hurling Championship All Stars team of 2020 sponsored by Garveys SuperValu. We thought we would have no hurling this year and the organizer Mike O’Halloran thought they would not be able to honour the hurlers who gave their families and communities such a lift during these terribly challenging times for everybody. Great credit goes to Mike O’Halloran who once again organized this fantastic event now in its eight year. With the Covid-19 restrictions, The Kerry Hurling All Stars Awards night was a digital event on Saturday 10th October, and The presentation pieces were delivered by Mike to the selected players directly on Sunday afternoon 11th October. I have to mention a man, Timmy Sheehan always loved this night, we are thinking of him and his family. Once again congrats to the nominees and team of the championship
