He’d be a very good coach
KIERAN’S character is his greatest attribute I feel. You listen to what he has to say, and you know that it comes from him having a great knowledge of the game. He is one of these players who is also able to back up everything he says when goes out onto the pitch himself. He was a major part of Kerry winning the four All-Irelands from 2006 to 2014 as teams were simply unable to handle him.
What he did in 2014 in both the Mayo games and the All-Ireland Final against Donegal stood out in winning that year with the effect he had in all three games.
I know about him as an opponent at this very moment from Stacks beating South Kerry only last Sunday in the County Championship but of the few times I did find myself marking him he was impossible to mark either from the front or from behind him.
I think he would be very good as a coach from the point of view of where players should be positioned, there were times you think you wouldn’t think he has seen you but inevitable he seemed to know where you were at all times.
