Veteran Kerry star Aidan O'Mahony says he is as hungry as ever for football as he prepares to head into his 11th championship campaign.

The Rathmore clubman will turn 34 on the weekend the Kingdom enter this year's title race when they take on the winners of Clare and Waterford on either June 7 or 8.

The four-time All-Ireland winner says they are training hard at the moment, but he took time out to play for Cork Gardai in the All-Ireland inter-firm final on Thursday evening when they were beaten by Medtronic from Galway at Pearse Stadium.

"It's a great competition, very enjoyable, and great to play with the lads you work with. But it's my last game with the gardai in Cork as I've moved back to Kerry after six years in Cork," he said.

O'Mahony was in flying form and scored 1-3 in a display where the triple All Star was full of running and all focus now is on the countdown to the start of the Munster championship.

"Training is going well with Kerry, we don't have a game for another four or five weeks so there is a lot of heavy training but I'm enjoying and the appetite is still as good as ever," he said.
