Kerry might have won yet another Munster football title but Eamonn Fitzmaurice isn't totally satisfied with every aspect of their play against Tipperary.

The Kingdom came back from the concession of an early goal to win 3-17 to 2-10 and also advance to the All-Ireland series stage.

"The performance was mixed. I think there were aspects that were very good and aspects that weren't so good but just relieved to be on the right side of it and to have won the Munster Championship and to be going the direct route to Croke Park," he told Newstalk Sport's Oisin Langan.


On a day when James O'Donoghue made a welcome return off the bench, Colm Cooper was withdrawn in the first half with what appeared to be a shoulder injury.

"He just got a knock on his shoulder and the lads seem to think it's not as serious as first thought, so he'll get it looked at this week and hopefully won't be too bad."
