If Kerry should lose the Munster Final replay against Cork and come through the clash against Kildare it will mean they will face Dublin in the All-Ireland quarter final on the August Bank holiday weekend. That means Kerry will be out playing for the next three weeks in a row.

A win against Cork on Saturday will mean Kerry will face the winners of Fermanagh or the beaten Leinster provincial finalists Westmeath. Kerry have a history with both teams in the championship courtesy of the qualifiers.

In 2002, Kerry resoundingly beat Fermanagh by 2-15 to 0-4 in the first ever pairing between the sides in championship.

Kerry also met Westmeath for the first time in championship in 2012, but unlike the Fermanagh match this was a close run thing with Kerry just about surviving a stubborn Westmeath in Mullingar by the solitary point, the final score 2-10 to 1-12.

A powerful goal by Darren O’Sullivan, helped Kerry get out alive that day.

Should Kerry fall to Cork and set up a qualifier date with Kildare it will be the first time the side’s met since the 2002 All-Ireland qualifier in Thurles.

Kerry ran out 2-10 to 1-5 victors on the day, but the game is most remembered for a spectacular solo goal by Eoin Brosnan.
