The Clifford brothers, David and Paudie, led Kerry to a Munster title with a combined total of 3-6 in their moment of grief. The duo's mother, Ellen Clifford, passed away on Saturday, but they decided to join the Kerry squad for the game against Clare. This decision provided comfort, and the brothers were warmly applauded by the crowd before throw-in.
They led Kerry to victory, with captain David lifting the Munster Cup after accumulating a personal tally of 2-6. The professional manner of their performance was a rich testament to their character, according to manager Jack O'Connor.
