For a people tyrannised by piseoga, there's an oddly sanguine air about Kerry.
Winter bled them dry, yet any invitation to fixate on magpies or red-heads or spooky cloud formations was declined. Almost one third of an All-Ireland winning team departed, yet 'Bomber' Liston reckons that the boon of Kieran Donaghy's return to fitness measures at "maybe 90pc" in compensation.
All sport is, essentially, plumed arithmetic and, for a team down Diarmuid Murphy, Darragh O Se, Tadhg Kennelly and Tommy Walsh from last September, Kerry's book-keeping remains a bright essay in solvency.
