1. WIN BREAKING BALL

With Cork already safely into the 2009 All-Ireland football final after their battering of Tyrone last weekend, our attention swings this Sunday to who will join them? Kerry or Meath. Kerry have been in the last five All-Ireland finals, I’ll look at two of the key duels that will decide if they can do just that and send the Royals packing next Sunday in Croke Park.

You can’t beat experience or class. Despite the flamboyance and arrogance of youth, the old experienced warhorse who’s been there, done that, invariably realises that something clever is required if his team is going to prevail. And so it was last Sunday with Charlestown edging past Castlebar, just when some might have felt a shock was on the cards. In Crossmolina’s case in our semi-final defeat to Knockmore it looked as though we had too much experience and not enough youthful exuberance. Last Sunday Castlebar had plenty of youthful energy around the field, but when the game was there to be won, Charlestown had that little bit of guile and know-how to close out the deal. With all their experience they knew how to win this game and advance to yet another county final.
