What have Kerry said?

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

He said: “They have serious ­forwards, a strong midfield, strong defensive set-up, so they tick a lot of the boxes.

“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.”
