At the tender age of 46, Kerry legend Maurice Fitzgerald was back on the GAA pitch last night when he togged out for his club St Mary's.

Maurice Fitz guided the Kerry men to an Intermediate Munster Championship last weekend and last night, in a Division 2 clash against Gneeveguilla, he gave the watching fans something to remember when he came on - 14 years after retiring from inter-county football.
