The RTE Panel Believe the Kerry Hurlers are Being ‘Shafted’ by the GAA

Posted by

Kerry had a great win at the weekend up in Antrim and will now face Antrim again in the Joe McDonagh final and if Kerry win that they will have to face Tipperary to get into the Munster Championship. Surely that’s extremely unfair for the Kerry hurlers says The Sunday Game panel, see it below;

The panel were talking on RTE and quoted by balls.ie 

“What’s the difference between Antrim and Kerry?” McGrath said on The Sunday Game.

“We’re playing county hurling. It’s absolutely ridiculous. You look at last year’s Joe McDonagh final: Westmeath win, and are in the Leinster Championship, do really well this year.

“They’ve made it into six teams [in Leinster] over the last two years, and we have a situation in Munster where Kerry… it’s just simply unfair, there’s no other analysis.

“We don’t know the reasoning why. Back in the day… I suppose over the years you might have said that Kerry weren’t able to be competitive with the top echelons of Munster, but surely their development [is important], and the prize for winning the Joe McDonagh should be to enter straight into the Munster Championship.”

Fitzgerald added: “I think it’s very unfair. Leinster have six, why can’t Munster? The lads are making progress, and it might be tough on them for a year or two, but I don’t see why they shouldn’t be there.”
