After Kerry won the 2014 All-Ireland, he took part in one of our favourite GAA photos.@Darransull86 on one side. Fionn the Irish Terrier, the GAA mascot, on the other.
Not sure what happened to Fionn. pic.twitter.com/fyhVRJBPDB

James O’Donoghue confirms his Kerry retirement. He made the decision when he dropped off the panel last year but decided not to rock the boat by announcing it then.
Badly hampered by injuries but his 2013-15 seasons will live long in the memory.
