Here we GAAGO again!

Kerry’s All-Ireland SFC Round 2 clash with Cork in Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Saturday week will once again be shown live on GAAGO much to the disgruntlement of Kerry supporters.

Three of Kerry’s four Championship games this season have been broadcast behind a paywall meaning that many of the GAA’s members have not had access to the coverage of the All-Ireland champions’ games.

The Kerry v Cork clash in Páirc Uí Chaoimh will have a throw-in time of 3pm on Saturday June 3rd.

Jack O’Connor’s side will be hoping to defeat Cork and then go on to beat Louth which would more than likely see them finishing second in their group. If Kerry did eventually finish second in Group 1 of the All-Ireland series, it would mean that they would have secured a home draw in the preliminary All-Ireland Quarter-Final. This would also see Kerry playing three weekends in a row with the Louth game due to take place on June 17th, followed by the preliminary All-Ireland Quarter-Final on the weekend of June 24th/25th, and if they further advance Kerry would play in the All-Ireland Quarter-Final in Croke Park on the weekend of July 1st/2nd. After Kerry’s unexpected defeat to Mayo on Saturday, very few will be complaining however about a busy end to the month of June and start of July for Jack O’Connor’s side.

Kerry Masters begin campaign in Limerick 

After a promising start to their life at Masters Football level in 2022, Kerry will enter their second season in the All-Ireland ‘Masters’ Gaelic Football competition in 2023. The competition, which is for over 40s – this year for anyone born in 1983 or earlier – has become increasingly popular since its creation a decade ago as a way for players to stay involved in a team at the end of their competitive playing career.  

The 2022 All-Ireland Final saw 2005 Footballer of the Year Stephen O’Neill lead his Tyrone team to victory with a Man of the Match performance in the final against a Dublin squad containing five-time All-Ireland winner Denis Bastick.

Recently appointed Kerry Masters manager Eddie O’Sullivan from Templenoe along with his selectors – brothers Adam and Gary O’Reilly of Glenflesk – have been busy putting their final squad together as they embark on the 2023 campaign. The Kerry Masters panel were being put through their paces in Fossa on Monday night ahead of their season opener away to Limerick in Killeady on Saturdayat 2pm.
