“I once got punched by Donegal supporters on Clonliffe Road after a game.

That day I ran to my car and was driving a bit fast down Clonliffe Road when a Ban Garda stopped me. ‘You are speeding sir!’ she said and I told her that I had just been attacked by a group of supporters and that they could still be after me.

“So yes, there were time it was like running with the bulls in Pamplona.”

“Enoch Powell said that all political lives end in failure. So getting the last hurrah right is something many get wrong because they stay on too long.

“I left Kerry after playing in an All-Ireland semi final and now people are saying I should stay on and I am thinking that is great because I will ride out into the sunset on a high.”
