Kerry joint manager Darragh Long paid tribute to goalkeeper Mary Ellen Bolger for lining for Kerry against Cork yesterday following the death of her mother Annette at the weekend.

And Long and joint manager Declan Quill also hailed the Kerry squad for the way they have rallied around Mary Ellen and helped her cope with the death of her mother.

“Today was a bit more than football and a bit more than sport,” said Long.

“It was about our group coming together for Mary Ellen and her family and honouring the memory of her mother, and to say that myself and Declan are immensely proud of that group is an understatement.”
