GAA: Rebels Own Peter Pan Is out to Write His Fairytale; MUNSTER FOOTBALL FINAL Cork V Kerry, Pairc UI Chaoimh, Tomorrow, 4.15


Byline: By JACKIE CAHILL

GRAHAM Canty is Cork's very own version of Peter Pan - he's 24 years old but it seems like he's been around forever.

From the sidelines, he watched the team progress during the spring months.

His assessment? "The lads played very well in the last two league games and were unlucky to qualify, they only lost narrowly but we were happy enough with the form we showed," he said. …
