ALL-MUNSTER PAIRINGS IN MINOR DECIDER

The minor final is a repeat of the Munster final where Kerry beat Tipperary by 2-14 to 1-11. Kerry led by 2-5 to 0-3 after 16 minutes and while Tipperary battled back, they had left themselves with too much to do.

However, they recovered well, beating Connacht champions, Galway in the All-Ireland quarter-final and Leinster champions, Kildare in the semi-final.

Kerry beat Connacht runners-up, Sligo in the quarter-final and Ulster champions Derry in the semi-final.

Kerry, who are seeking their 13th titles, are bidding to retain the All-Ireland, having beaten Donegal in last year’s final.
