Replying To TheHermit:  "Ah parting is such sweet sorrow.

Good luck my little man and I fear for your little mind now you won't have me to blame for every legitimate criticism of the Dubs that gets posted from now on.

Enjoy a Kerry free forum sure isn't it what you and your cronies always wanted ;D

An Riocht Abu!

This is the hermit signing off."
It's not an airport. No need to announce your departure.

Being honest I don't know what's wrong with crokes, they're minors took an awful hiding the other night as well.

I reckon The Shamrocks will win it. They seem to be firing on all cylinders; 4-5 county men, and good balance in the other positions. Plus, The Stacks have flattered to deceive for decades now. Admittedly, I don't know much about them, and their current players.

I don't know, Stacks gave Templenoe a fair hiding today and Templenoe had 4 Kerry players, also Stacks bate Kenmare in last years final.

Still there is many a slip between a cup and a lip as they say.

You got that one right, KingdomBoy. Good win for Stacks. This new system on HS doesn't give much incentive to post. Not for me anyway. It's only a matter of time before almost nobody will be posting at all.

That's true, this new system is not great.

I was in killarney today for the intermediate semifinal between Rathmore and Beaufort and the Kerry club final between Austin Stacks and Kenmare where Beaufort lived up to their favourites tag by winning 1:16 to Ráthmores 1:10 and now will face Na Gaeil in the final.

Stacks beat Kenmare by 1:16 to 1:11 where Kenmares biggest problem was they only had 1 Seánie Shea, Stacks will represent the County now should a divisional side win the championship, stack were very impressive and they have subs that can more than contribute.

Kerry s Tommy Walsh has just announced his retirement from inter County football. His term in Australia affected him football wise and a severe injury cost him his pro football contract while also losing that years of pace. He did quite come back the footballer he was before leaving but always played with heart and pride. Gave a masterclass performance in the all ireland final in 09 scoring 4 points from play (2 with either leg). Was also one of the greatest minor midfielders I ever saw. A huge man with natural strength but never got involved in dirty play. A credit to his family and his county and best of luck to Tommy.

Totally agree with you Mick. Best wishes to Tommy in his retirement. Hopefully, he's a few more good years left in the Strand Rd. jersey. He was a player that I liked, and has both his AI medal on the field of play with a great performance, and his professional football career, to look back on. Not a lot of footballers have either of them, never mind both!

Best wishes to Tommy in his retirement, he was some colossus before his AFL stint, delighted he got the swan song after Fitzmaurice left, serious out ball option and id imagine a huge influence with his winning experience behind the scenes.

Surprised Jack didn't twist his arm, he likes a big man option upfront if my memory is correct, but he may have evolved from that, he had Daniel Flynn playing the sole target upfront for Kildare, but Dan was pretty mobile. I know Jack had him at club for a bit too.

Kind words indeed Username. Yeah Tommy was a colossus before his tour of Oz but in fairness to him when he came back he gave his all. When he tore hamstring off the bone in Oz it finished his pro career and he list that yard of pace. A very clean player. You are correct in that Jack also managed Tommy at club level. However I think Tommy making the right decision and best of luck to him.

So I see off the ball have made an apology for making up lies about the Kerry county board, let's hope they've learnt their lesson now.

Yes your memory from when you read it on the hoganstand home page, where Jack said he had Tommy for 2 years 1 at club level and had him for another year at intercounty.

That was pre 2011 so it's understandable that you didn't know.
