Kerry ladies joint-manager Declan Quill is hoping that the buzz in the county at the moment can help to carry his team over the line in Sunday’s All-Ireland final against Meath.
The Kingdom head for Croke Park this weekend as 15/8 outsiders as they look to try and dethrone Eamonn Murray’s women of the Brendan Martin Cup.
Speaking ahead of the decider, Quill says that they are “surfing a wave” at the moment down in Kerry.
“The men winning Sunday and the homecoming last night in Tralee and the amount of people coming up to us and wishing us luck and telling us that it will be us next week you are hoping they will turn up and support us,” he told gaa.ie
“The whole county is talking about football, the amount of signs up for the lads as well as the girls is great around the clubs and around Tralee on the railings there is loads of them and it is great to see.
"The profile of the game has changed since 2012 (the last time Kerry contested a Ladies Senior Final), how many people knew the ladies final was on, but now the coverage TG4 give it and Lidl give the leagues and the media and social media have driven is so much.
“Every man, woman and child knows the Kerry ladies are playing in an All-Ireland final on Sunday."Tweet
