THE DUST IS still settling on their recent All-Ireland senior triumph but 13 of Kerry’s winning squad will be back in action tonight in Austin Stack Park.

Stars like Marc Ó Sé, Anthony Maher, Paul Geaney and recent Allstar winners Kieran Donaghy and David Moran will all line out at the Tralee venue in a football challenge match. The game will see Tralee CBS – ‘The Green Stars Past & Present’ – in action against the 2014 All-Ireland champions Kerry.

‘The Green’ is a famous football nursery with 15 Corn Uí Mhuiri titles – Munster senior colleges A football championship – to their name. The game is being organised to raise funds for the construction of their new all-weather multi-purpose pitch.

Throw-in tonight is 7.05pm with photo opportunities available with Sam Maguire from 6.15pm-7pm. Tickets are €10 with a half-time raffle for prizes including Kieran Donaghy’s All-Ireland jersey.

The Kerry team includes Brian Kelly, Shane Enright, Maher, Johnny Buckley, Mikey and Paul Geaney, and Kieran O’Leary who all played some part in the All-Ireland final win in September over Donegal.

The Tralee CBS outfit includes past pupils David Moran, Barry John Keane and Kieran Donaghy, and current teacher Marc Ó Sé.
