MAU­RICE FITZGER­ALD

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - SPORT -

NOT­WITH­STAND­ING Peter Keane’s li­cence to pick his man­age­ment team with­out con­di­tion, it still made sense to main­tain a link to the pre­vi­ous man­age­ment, es­pe­cially given that Keane hasn’t worked a se­nior in­ter-county dress­ing-room be­fore.

In the cir­cum­stances, Keane’s Ca­her­siveen neigh­bour and St Marys club mate, Mau­rice Fitzger­ald, was the ob­vi­ous choice, given his rep­u­ta­tion as one of the great ex­po­nents of the game. It prob­a­bly helps that he was only in­volved for two of the Fitz­mau­rice years, as a se­lec­tor, and so re­mains a rel­a­tively new voice in the dress­ing-room.
