This great display in Kelliher’s Hardware was put together by Geraldine Riordan from the store.

“I’d say it’ll be close but hopefully Kerry by a point or two,” said Pat Cleary who works in Kelliher’s. “I normally watch it at home with my wife who’s from Dublin, but seeing as Dublin aren’t playing I’ll head to the pub to watch it,” laughed Pat.

The display at Hennessy’s Bar proclaims Kerry’s proud tradition of All-Ireland wins.

“We the display every time we’re in the All-Ireland,” said Tony Hennessy from the bar. “I’ll be heading to the game myself, I think it’s a shoe-in for Kerry, we’ve too much firepower.”


You can’t miss the colours on the front of Euro Focus. Then again, they are selling the merchandise inside.

Maguire’s Butchers sent this one in. Confidence is high in Caherslee apparently.

An Teach Beag is well togged out for Sunday. “I was going to go to the game but I couldn’t get a ticket,” said Jackie O’Mahony who works there. “They’re like gold dust. I’ll watch it in the pub I suppose. I’d say it’ll be a great game but Kerry will win,” she said.


Horan’s Health Store on Russell Street made a huge effort to show the colours. “I can’t get to the game,” said Kay Hurley who works there, before exclaiming, “but I am going to Ladies Day tomorrow!”
