Kennelly's Kerry beats Cork

Four years ago this week, I stayed up into the wee hours to watch TADHG KENNELLY celebrate on TV. He had become the first Irishman to win an AFL GRAND FINAL medal, playing for the SYDNEY SWANS.
Today, I heard Kennelly celebrating again, this time at a more reasonable hour.
Kennelly's KERRY won their 36th ALL-IRELAND FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP today, beating CORK, 0-16 to 1-09, at PAÍRC AN CHRÓCAIGH (CROKE PARK).
I listened online to live coverage of the final on RTÉ RADIO 1.
Cork dominated the early stages of the match and led by three points after 15 minutes.
Kerry pulled away, however, and Tommy Walsh and Colm "Gooch" Cooper scored six points each.
GAELIC FOOTBALL is a curious sport.

Kennelly famously danced a jig after winning his 2005 championship medal in Australia. I bet he's dancing again today.
