o'connor lays down the law

KERRY boss Jack O'Connor has "laid down the law" to some of his players about their treatment of match officials, according to county chairman Patrick O'Sullivan.

O'Sullivan was responding to complaints at Monday night's county board meeting from a Valentia club delegate who echoed the recent sentiments of Paidi O Se when he stated he was "very disappointed at the way some of the Kerry players have been behaving in recent games".

O'Sullivan reminded the meeting that the Kingdom finished top of the now defunct 'fair play' league last year and that O'Connor had dealt with the matter.

"I can reveal that Jack O'Connor brought some of the senior players together after training and laid down the law, as to what is acceptable and not acceptable as regards behaviour towards match officials," O'Sullivan confirmed.

"So team management are dealing with the matter and we will leave it rest for now."
