The All-Ireland winner Graham O’Sullivan and his Kerry teammates brought the Sam Maguire trophy back to Dingle this week to celebrate adding a 38th All-Ireland to the Kindom’s honours. As the young Kerry man gave a speech to the crowed he remembered a dear friend of his that sadly passed away.
“But that same very week, a young fella I played football with, when I was younger, back in Waterville, sadly passed away.
“I was thinking about it, and I thought, ‘Jeez, how can I be nervous when I’m getting to live the peak of life at the moment?’ These experiences are unbelievable.
“So, I just want to remember Tristan tonight. He was a great character and a great young fella that I got on with very well. And it’s just that – enjoy the moments you get in life, no matter what age you are just enjoy it, because you’re just never going to know.”
Beautiful, poignant and emotional words from Graham 💚💛 pic.twitter.com/jlNHQmvjZN
