Watch: Huge Paul Kerrigan Tackle Kicks Off Dust-Up During Munster Final

Watch: Huge Paul Kerrigan Tackle Kicks Off Dust-Up During Munster Final
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

Dr. Crokes are out of the club championship.

A year after winning the All-Ireland, Pat O'Shea's side failed to overcome Nemo Rangers in the Munster Final.

Boasting the likes of Colm Cooper, Johnny Buckley, Fionn Fitzgerald and Kieran O'Leary Crokes were well fancied to progress to the All-Ireland final but never got going, finding themselves behind by 0-02 after 15 minutes.

Cork's Luke Connolly was outstanding for Nemo, landing a monumental haul of 0-10.

At half-time Crokes trailed 0-09 to 0-05 and things went from bad to worse in the second-half when Kieran O'Leary was sent off. Nemo managed to keep the entire Crokes full-forward line of Colm Cooper, Kieran O'Leary and Daithí Casey scoreless from play, limiting Cooper to 0-03 from frees. It is has not been a good week for the All-Ireland champions, who were thrown out of the East Kerry Championship by the Kerry County Board after failing to fulfil a fixture last week.

Cork Captain Paul Kerrigan was lucky to avoid punishment after a questionable high tackle on Gavin White, which then instigated a square-up between Kerrigan and Crokes captain Daithí Casey:

It is the first time Crokes have lost in Munster since 2011 when they were beaten by the same opposition in the Munster Final. Nemo Rangers will go on to meet Ulster champions Slaughtneil in the Semi-Final.
