What have Kerry said?

KERRY boss Éamonn Fitzmaurice insists his side have plenty of respect for this Galway team.

“Shane Walsh, Michael Daly, Damien Comer, Ian Burke, Danny Cummins, Michael Meehan came on as a sub, Seán ­Armstrong, Johnny Heaney got two goals…those fellas would get on any team in Ireland.

“When you look at their season as a whole, it’s been a very strong season from a Galway perspective. They were very good in Division 2 and won it.”
