Joe Kernan inducted into Gaelic Writers’ Association (GWA) Hall of Fame

On Friday might Joe Kernan was inducted into the Gaelic Writers’ Association (GWA) Hall of Fame.

Joe Kernan led Armagh to their first and only senior All-Ireland title in 2002, while as a player he won two All-Stars, three Ulster titles, and lined out for the county in the 1977 All-Ireland decider against Dublin.

Kernan first made his mark on the national stage as a manager when he led Crossmaglen to their maiden All-Ireland club title in 1997.

The south Armagh side followed this up by going all the way again in 1999 and 2000 with Kernan at the helm.

Kernan would later go on to manager Ulster at Railway Cup level, and Ireland in the International Rules series.
