May 05, 2008
Kerry U21 football boss Sean Geaney says the pain of past defeats spurred on his charges to beat Kildare (2-12 to 0-11) in this year's All-Ireland decider. Geaney believes his players were utterly determined to put an end to their run of disappointments at the final hurdle: "A lot of these players have lost All-Irelands and if they lost another one today it would have been heartbreaking," said Geaney. "I'm delighted for our backs, they were superb today, typified by the block there by Colin O'Mahony at the end. If that goal had gone in you don't know what would have happened."
