Sympathy    Sincere sympathy to the Harty family on the sad passing of Mary Harty, Ard na Lí and formerly of Strand Road. Mary was always a great supporter of the Na Gaeil Lotto. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a h-anam dílis.

Súil Siar: Munster Novice Football Final December 12th 2010: Kerry’s Eye View: Man of the Match: Na Gaeil midfielder, David Culloty. David Ross, Rob Murphy, Niall Lucey, Ian McCarthy and Paul Daly all shone on the day but the beacon was lit by David Culloty whose all round performance both in defence and attack was quite staggering. Magic Moment: The art of free taking from the ground is not dead. In heavy winter conditions, Eamon O’Neill slammed a 44 yarder over the bar a minute after the shock of Ballingarry’s first goal.

Man in Black: Referee Simon Stokes did little wrong – always up with the play – quick to call the thrown pass. He was a very fair and neutral arbiter.

Match Day Watch: Great credit to Knockaderry GAA. They have nurtured this competition, stayed in touch with both Limerick and Kerry media giving pitch updates and did everything with a smile.

The Kerryman View: Main Man: Robert Murphy picked up the official plaudits but it’s hard to get away from the feeling that Na Gaeil might not have won this game had it not been for David Culloty’s drive and determination, particularly in the 2nd half when he went forward to score two vital points and fielded some crucial kick outs as well.

Key Moment: It wasn’t really until Seamie O’Neill found the back of the net that you could genuinely feel that Na Gaeil were on course for victory as they crucially went two scores (four points) in front of Granagh/Ballingarry with a well worked move that saw Michael Griffin blitz the Limerick’s sides defence with his pace in the build up to the goal. Tactical Battle: Granagh/Ballingarry is primarily a hurling club and it showed in terms of their finishing where they missed some very scoreable chances in the first half.

Na Gaeil were a bit lax in terms of end product in the first half but better composure in the second half saw them turn the tables however. Talking point: Were Na Gaeil poor or were Granagh/Ballingarry actually that good? One difference between this final and the other three Kerry victories is that this one was played in winter as opposed to March when the previous ones were. The spring date possibly, favoured the Kerry Champions more.

Referee Rating: Simon Stokes (Tullylease): Stokes was certainly a referee more of the opinion of letting the game flow despite what were one or two rash challenges on Na Gaeil players during the match. A seemingly legitimate late Na Gaeil score was disallowed but overall it was a competent performance from the Cork referee.
