Also available for download is the complete series of the excellent "The Greatest Day" episodes that were produced by the Radio Kerry Sports Team detailing each of Kerry's 36 All Ireland Titles.

Browse through every game that Kerry played in the Championship from 1928 to 2012, as well as National League games from 1950 to 2012. In addition, we have a record of all players who played for Kerry and the clubs which they hailed from.



The Legendary Casey Brothers

The Legendary Casey Brothers
In 1982 the seven Casey brothers were inducted into the Irish Sports Hall of Fame, the only family ever to receive that honour. The brothers, from Sneem in County Kerry, starred as Olympic-class oarsmen, Tug-of-War champions, professional wrestlers and boxers and won fame throughout the sporting world. Steve, known as 'Crusher' Casey, became the supreme wrestler in the world and for a decade no one could match him. When he turned to boxing, the great Joe Louis refused to go into the ring with him. In 1983 at a family reunion in Sneem, five brothers, all in their seventies, climbed into the four-oar boat they used to win championships in the 1930s. Although they had not rowed together in fifty years, they still moved with their former natural unity.

Sports people from Kerry have achieved fame in many fields but the success of the Caseys surely outshines all.
