The Kerry fans had to come home without Sam last Sunday but it was great to see the Dubs so ecstatic about their win. Sam can’t live in Kerry always!

So this week we concentrate on the Ploughing, then Glin Coursing and after that it is downhill to Christmas and still I am waiting for a summer! No hope now, I presume.
