1974 Kerry V Cork Munster Final

There is some fascinating Archive Footage (of interest to older!  Millstreet GAA fans) of the 1974 Kerry V Cork Munster Final available on youTube . Cork won in very poor conditions. All the Millstreet players were excellent but it may well have been Humphrey Kelleher’s (#3) best performance in a Cork jersey. Dinny Long (#8) showing Mick O Connell the ball also must have gone down very  well with Kerry supporters at the time!  John Coleman #6, and Connie Hartnett #7.
