From the beginning of the year, it was pretty obvious that Jason Foley and Tom O’Sullivan were set to form two-thirds of the Kerry full-back line. With plenty of senior experience already under their belts, and coming into their primes as footballers, they were relative shoo-ins to hold their starting spots.

The topic of much conversation was on the potential recipient of the green and gold no.2 jersey. Would Brian O Beaglaoich continue in that role, even though the An Ghaeltacht man looked more comfortable in the half-back line? Or, after such a superb county championship campaign, would the fast-developing Dylan Casey be a bolt from the blue?
