Kerry 1-15 Waterford 2-6

The fact that Waterford lost to Kerry in last Wednesday’s Munster Minor Football Semi-Final is of course, no great shame.

It’s roughly the equivalent of losing to Kilkenny in hurling, even if there are far more sports played to a higher standard outside of football in the Kingdom than there are outside of hurling on Noreside.

The bookies were offering odds of 1/50 on Mickey Ned O’Sullivan’s charges advancing from this game.No doubt, the odds were worked out on the fact that the bookies will have been only too well aware that Waterford have had just two collective training sessions all year
