KERRY’S EXPLOITS IN reaching another All-Ireland senior football final have resulted in club action in the county being deferred with the 2015 county senior final pencilled in for Sunday 1 November.

Éamonn Fitzmaurice’s Kerry team booked their place in the September decider with victory over Tyrone in last Sunday’s semi-final.

Their progress this summer has held up club matters in Kerry particularly due to a replay being needed in July in the Munster final.

The Kerry county board have released details of their senior football fixture programme with the third round – that includes the glamour tie between 2013 champions Dr Crokes and 2014 champions Austin Stacks – pencilled in for the first weekend in October.

The quarter-finals will take place on October 10-11, semi-finals on October 17-18 with the final scheduled for 1 November.

The Kerry club champions this year are in action in Munster at the semi-final stage on 15 November against the Waterford or Cork champions.
