What makes this Munster SFC different to many of those that preceded it? On the face of it, not much - Kerry and Cork are on opposite sides of the draw and traditionally, when that happens, the superpowers of the south advance to the final.
"Look, there's always relief when you achieve something that you know you're going to have to work very hard for and at the same time that's the same for every game, so it's nothing that's massively different, we just have to learn ourselves."
Jack O'Connor's late point ensured Kerry another berth in a Munster minor (U17) football final after downing Cork by the minimum at Austin Stack Park in Tralee, where it finished 1-11 to 1-10 in the hosts' favour.
"We're relieved. It was a very difficult game. Thankfully the lads worked very hard and showed the character in them to grind out a result in a very difficult game. I would hope it will galvanise us. We've had very difficult challenges with Roscommon so hopefully this will help us prepare."
