PICS: A bad day was made worse for the Kerry supporting driver of this car outside Croke Park

It’s going to be a long journey home for this poor Kerry man or woman.

It wasn’t a good day out for the Kingdom at GAA HQ today as they suffered a five-point defeat to a Mayo team who ran out deserved winners and advanced to yet another All-Ireland Final.

Eamonn Fitzmaurice’s side never really got to the pitch of things during Saturday’s replay and though they reduced an eight-point deficit to four points midway through the second half, Mayo kept them at arm’s length.

Stephen Rochford’s side eventually got over the line after a messy finish which saw referee David Gough dish out three red cards, including a straight red for Kieran Donaghy in what might be his last game in a Kerry jersey.

For the second week in a row, Kerry fans were outnumbered by their Mayo counterparts at Croke Park and while it will be a long journey home for all of those heading southwest, one Kerry supporter must have been particularly aggrieved to arrive back to this sight after the final whistle.

Not this particular supporter’s day today, but history tells us that it won’t be long until the Kingdom – and no doubt this supporter – will be back for better days in Croke Park.
