DR CROKES WILL face Austin Stacks the standout tie of the Kerry SFC opening round following tonight’s draw.

The 16-team competition will be run-off on a knock-out basis as 2017 All-Ireland champions Crokes face the Tralee club who were last county champions in 2014.

The rivals, who are the two most successful clubs in the county, met in the 2013 county final when the Killarney outfit prevailed. Another Killarney versus Tralee tie takes place in the form of Killarney Legion against Kerins O’Rahillys. 

Holders East Kerry, who have been bolstered by the Rathmore contingent following their relegation in 2019, will face Feale Rangers for a place in the quarter-finals.
