Kerry’s Quest for Supremacy
With a current record of 11 All-Ireland Senior Championship victories, Kerry stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the legendary Cork teams that dominated from 2005 to 2016.
Dublin’s Pursuit of Excellence
Their formidable opponents, Dublin, are on a quest for their sixth title, building on their previous successes in 2010, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020.
Kerry’s Illustrious Past
This upcoming showdown marks Kerry’s 14th appearance in the All-Ireland Senior Final, having faced disappointment against Meath in the 2022 decider and a loss to Cork in 2012.
Kerry’s Historic Achievements
Kerry’s journey to greatness began with their first Senior title in 1976, followed by an awe-inspiring nine-in-a-row triumph from 1982 to 1990.
A Glimpse of Victory
Kerry’s last Senior Final victory dates back to 1993, when they emerged victorious against Laois.
Kerry will need to prove they’ve evolved in the last 12 months both in terms of their tactical nous and big-match mentality, and Long is confident that they have.
“I think we’re a more mature team this year,” he says. “There’s times, the Meath game for instance there a couple of weeks ago in Tralee, very bad evening weather-wise, huge wind, got a great lead up, played really well in the first half and we just had to show a different style in the second half and I think the characteristics that we showed and the composure that we showed on the ball, which we developed in the second half even more so against Mayo by tagging on the scores that we didn’t get in the Meath game.
“Watching back that game and seeing where we went wrong and being very honest about where we went wrong and trying to learn from it, that definitely helped us this year. I think our League campaign was close to being flawless which culminated in a superb performance here at headquarters against Galway.
“Have we hit the heights of that game since? We probably haven’t but, look, there’s still one game to go in the season.”
