All Ireland Senior Football Final.
In one of the poorest finals for many years Kerry outclassed Cork. Cork gifted Kerry three soft goals. Northern teams such as Tyrone and Armagh introduced defensive tactics-clearly influenced by rugby- which appeared to threaten the dominance of Kerry. However Kerry managers Jack O Connor and Pat O'Shea have learned from Tyrone and Armagh. They have adopted the northern approach to a certain extent but have added an extra layer of skill also. If the hunger remains the Kingdom could win the three in a row in 2008.
