Liverpool and Ireland soccer legend Ronnie Whelan captained Kildare to victory at Croke Park.
In a thriller, the Lilywhites beat Kerry by 7-12 to 5-13.
Alongside a host of well-known faces from the show business and sporting world, the RTE pundit was taking part in the Alan Kerins Project charity challenge match.
"It's been a while since I've worn a jersey, so the fitness isn't the best right now," Whelan said.
The players each collected €1,800 to help raise funds for the Alan Kerins community and youth leadership development programmes in Zambia.
Kerry great Mick Spillane donned his favourite colours, alongside former Irish rugby international Mick Galwey, who captained the Kerry side.
Former Cork senior football team manager Billy Morgan and his successor Larry Tompkins, rugby pundit Brent Pope, RTE's Michael Lyster and Clare football manager Mick O'Dwyer were also spotted in action.
Former Finance Minister Charlie McCreevy donned the managerial jacket for the day. Today FM's Matt Cooper was in action, comedian Barry Murphy was performing a delicate balancing act with a fetching wig atop his head, while model Roz Purcell cut a slender stride among the burly men.
Footballing hero Tadhg Kennelly spent his first Valentine's Day as a newlywed thousands of miles away from his wife Nicole Noonan.
Former Kerry and Sydney Swans AFL player Kennelly has left his other half at home in Australia while on a recruiting hunt here for up-and-coming players.
