When it comes to the galaxy of stars (and drama queens) in Kerry South the sight of Michael Gleeson heading the poll might appear to be a case of an outsider coming to town.

In Kerry South, though, Gleeson is no outsider. He starts with the considerable advantage of having two All-Ireland medals in his pocket after he broke into the Kerry team among such legends as Mick O'Dwyer, Mick O'Connell and Liam Higgins.

The leader of the quixotic sounding South Kerry Independent Alliance was in the same class as the formidable Senator Joe O'Toole, who told the Sunday Independent, "He is a man I hold in the highest regard."
