The Kerry hurlers have opened their National League Division 2A campaign with a 14-point win away to Derry at Celtic Park, Derry on Saturday, 4th February with goals from Eoin Ross and sub Paudie O’Connor complementing 11 converted frees from Podge Boyle in a performance that will have greatly pleased manager Stephen Molumphy. The Crotta Hurling Club was represented by Sean Weir and Cillian Trant on the Kerry panel. Kerry was fully deserving of the win and they should take on Carlow in Austin Stack Park next Sunday confident of making it back-to-back wins, even if the Leinster men will provide a much sterner test.
Best wishes to the Kerry players and their management.
