Kerry leave no quarter

Dublin entered this All-Ireland quarter-final with high hopes but a blistering start by Kerry put paid to that. Colm ‘Gooch’ Cooper’s early goal set the tone for a 1-24 to 1-7 win and Pat Gilroy, in his first season as manager, summed it all up succinctly: "A big factor seemed to be that in the first 15 minutes we were all over the pitch. We were like startled earwigs."
