"That's like digging a field and you don't even have a shovel"

New Kerry boss Peter Keane isn’t entertaining talk of spoiling Dublin’s five-in-a-row bid at this early stage in his tenure.

“I suppose I haven’t even a panel picked so where would I start on that one without a panel,” he told the Irish Independent at the county's Centre of Excellence last night.

“That’s like digging a field and you don’t even have a shovel, we’ll get the shovel first and then we’ll start thinking about that one.”

The Kingdom’s 2018 championship record suggests they have a quite a bit of ground to make up on Jim Gavin’s all-conquering Sky Blues.

“If you are looking at where we are in 2018, we are a long way from that,” Keane added.

“Wouldn’t that be lovely (winning an All-Ireland) but there isn’t much point in sitting here talking about that.

“My priority is to try and put a panel together and cracking on from there.”
