Kerry 0-19 Kildare 0-14: Lilies Flunk Test Despite Flynn Masterclass

Kerry 0-19 Kildare 0-14 (NFL Div 1, Tralee, 17 March 2018) While the spirit was better, the outcome was familiar.

Donegal 1-15 Kildare 3-7: Lilies Down In the Mouth in Ballyshannon

Donegal 1-15 Kildare 3-7 (NFL Div 1, Ballyshannon, 25 February 2018)     We’d like to focus on the football. Really like to.

The Lessons Continue for Kildare Team and Management

Kildare 2-10 Dublin 2-17 (National Football League Division One, Croke Park) So where does that leave us? It’s common in the modern media to take the “5 Things We Learned…” approach to these things.

By half time we had put in our order for humble pie and devoured it with some enthusiasm after a makeshift Kildare side made a nonsense of our pre-match doom-mongering.
