Paul Geaney helped himself to a hat-trick of goals as Dingle booked a place in this year’s Kerry SFC final at East Kerry’s expense.

Geaney and his club-mates romped to an impressive 4-13 to 0-12 victory in today’s semi-final replay at Austin Stack Park and will now advance to a final showdown with the county’s standard bearers Dr Crokes.

However, the game was marred by a melee at the start of the second-half involving players and members of the respective backroom teams.

When peace was restored, East Kerry's Paudie Clifford was issued with his marching orders by referee Paul Hayes and individuals from both management teams were also sent to the stands.

All-Star nominee David Clifford followed his brother for an early shower in the 46th minute following an off-the-ball altercation with an opponent.
