Kerry Come From 7 Points Down To Draw With Dublin In Thurles

Kerry and Dublin played out a compelling draw at Semple Stadium in Thurles on Sunday afternoon.

A David Clifford penalty in the 74th minute levelled the match at 1-18 to Dublin's 4-9.

Kerry had been six points down at the break and seven points behind early in the second half. Two goals from Con O'Callaghan and another from Cormac Costello provided the Dubs with much of their advantage.

Kerry's comeback began in 45th minute as they reeled off five unanswered points. They were level in the 56th minute through Paul Murphy.

However, a penalty from Cormac Costello in the 60th minute - after Diarmuid O'Connor was adjudged to have fouled O'Callaghan - looked as though it would give the reigning All-Ireland champions victory.

The Kingdom fought back once more and, when Philly McMahon fouled Stephen O'Brien - he was also shown a black card - Clifford stepped up to draw his side level.
