Watch: Crokes Stroll Into Munster Final With Sublime Win

Dr Crokes 5-20

Finbarrs 1-11

Kerry’s Dr Crokes remain on track for their eighth Munster club football title after they demolished Finbarr’s of Cork with an incredible performance this afternoon. 

The Kerry champions scored a magnificent 5-20 in Killarney with all of their scores coming from play.

They were six points to be better after just 20 minutes but a well-worked goal and finish from Eoin McGreevey brought Finbarrs right back into contention.

But this only seemed to spur on Crokes who scored their first goal just two minutes later with a brilliant solo effort from former Kerry captain, Johnny Buckley.

It was game over after 27 minutes when Daithi Casey finished off a sublime team effort to widen the gap to 11 points. With a bench containing Colm Cooper, the afternoon was never going to get any easier for the Cork side in difficult conditions.

The Gooch scored a point before showing great vision to set up Micheál Burns for his side’s fourth goal of the afternoon.

With four minutes remaining in the game, Jordan Kiely once again rattled the net to seal a superb victory. Crokes will now face St Josephs Miltown in the Munster final after the west Clare men secured a 2-11 to 0-9 win over the Nire of Waterford this afternoon.

Miltown dominated the game from the off but it wasn’t until Cormac Murray and Sean Malone hit the net in the second half that their place in their first ever provincial final was secured.
