Kerry completed a historic drive for five Electric Ireland All-Ireland Minor Football titles in a row by beating Galway in this afternoon’s Final in Croke Park.

They had to show character as well as quality to pull it off, because they were in a deep hole when they trailed by 1-8 to 0-4 after 26 minutes of the first half.

Galway had kicked an unanswered 1-7 to roar into that seven-point lead and were playing with great confidence, but a rally just before half-time gave Kerry hope and they were magnificent in the second 30 minutes.

Galway’s Ryan Monahan scored the first point of the match after just 18 seconds, but it was Kerry who looked the better team in the first ten minutes of the match.
