Kerry Garden In Full Bloom Not Bothering Peter Keane

In front of the cameras and microphone at least, Peter Keane isn't letting too much optimism show regarding his Kerry team. On Saturday night, they made it three wins from three to start his reign as Kingdom boss.

Significantly, the latest win was a fizzing jolt not just to Kerry football but Gaelic football in general as Dublin were beaten at a packed Austin Stack Park in Tralee.

"The league wasn't a big issue for us. Whenever there's a win going, we'll take it. We won't say no to it if it's coming," Keane told eir Sport after the game before producing a quote which will go down as an all-time great 'yerrah Kerry' line.

That said, look, what have we here, February 9th. There was nothing ever handed out in February. About three weeks ago, I was looking out in my garden and I saw a plant in full bloom. I was looking at it thinking, 'Mother of God,' but I didn't think it was summer. You can be sure that we're not getting to carried away these results.

"We're just happy, we worked hard, particularly in the second half," said Keane.

"We coughed up two goals - even though they were very good goals - that were softer than we'd like. There wasn't even a smell of a goal in that second half. That was something we were very happy with."
