Kerry can run their competitions as they see fit, that's their own business. But it's a farce that the Munster/Central Council allow them to enter their 8th highest rank side into the Munster intermediate club championship, and worse again their 16th top side into the junior championship. How it's been allowed to go on for so long is just daft.
Its not a like for like comparison as there are less clubs (59) in Kerry compared to about 260 in Cork
So when you look at it it as a ratio of the clubs in each county then it not far off
8/59 = 0.135
So as a ratio Cork teams are higher ranked
Also i believe that there a 16 intermediate clubs in Kerry so ti would make it there 24th best team to enter the Junior Championship
