75 years after their first Munster football title Clare are champions again after beating Kerry in Limerick.
Clare had reached the Munster Football final for the first time in 43 years and were seeking a title they had won only once previously and that was in 1917. Their opponents Kerry had 63 Munster titles. Clare started the game without their injured forward David Keane and after five minutes they had missed a penalty.
It was Kerry who struck first with a point from Billy O'Shea. Before Clare had their first score on the board Kerry keeper Peter O'Leary had saved Gerry Killeen's penalty. Despite the setback Clare did settle and should have been further ahead than their one point half time lead.
Early in the second half veteran Jack O'Shea missed a great chance for Kerry. With twenty two minutes remaining Colm Clancy scored Clare's first goal to make the score 1-08 to 0-08 and Clare supporters began to believe this could be their day. A Jack O'Shea point reduced the lead to two points before a long Gerry Kileen dead ball into the Kerry goal mouth was eventually turned into net by Martin Daly.
With thirteen minutes remaining the Banner men were five points ahead. Kerry managed to cut the lead to three points but despite a few scares it was Clare who finished stronger and had the final say with another Gerry Kileen point. The final whistle brought wild scenes of celebration and the great line from RTÉ match commentator Marty Morrissey, a Clare man,
And I can tell you that there won't be a cow milked in County Clare for at least a week.
The final score was Clare 2-10 Kerry 012.
