Kerry cruise to Munster SFC crown

Kingdom outclass Tipperary

Kerry have won a record 78th Munster SFC title after easing past Tipperary by 3-17 to 2-10 at Fitzgerald Stadium, Killarney.

Paul Geaney was back to his brilliant best after injury, registering 2-3 for the hosts but it was Tipperary, appearing in their first provincial senior decider since 2002, who got off to a dream start when Jimmy Feehan drove through Kerry's defence before firing a low shot through the legs of Brian Kelly and into the back of the net.

However, four points and a goal from Paul Murphy saw normal service resumed as the Kingdom led after 17 minutes.

Tipp were rattled but they hung in there but Kerry's class really began to tell on 27 minutes as Geaney spun off a defender before burying his first three-pointer of the afternoon.

Kerry stepped on the gas and led by 2-7 to 1-4 at the break and any thoughts of an unlikely comeback were put to bed when Geaney grabbed his second goal 12 minutes after the restart with another cracking strike.

Eamonn Fitzmaurice began emptying his bench to inject fresh legs into his side but Tipperary took advantage when a cool Robbie Kiely goal and a couple of quickfire points reduced the gap to just six points.

However, Kerry just upped the gears and ran out comfortable winners.

Overall, this was a straightforward victory for Kerry but Fitzmaurice will be worried that his side could concede 2-10 to a team they were clearly a cut above and will know they must tighten up ahead of tougher challenges later in the summer.

Tipp meanwhile will take heart from their attacking display and know they have something to build on for future years.
