Four-time All-Ireland winner Kieran Donaghy and Sunday Independent columnist Joe Brolly have a complicated past.

Writing in his new book What Do You Think of That?, the giant Kerry forward told of how he used 'another man's spite', referring to Brolly, to drive him to All-Ireland success in 2014.

The anger stemmed from two articles penned by the outspoken pundit where he claimed "Kerry's conveyor belt had stalled".

The other column came with the headline: "Catch a fallen star, put him in your pocket'.

Donaghy claimed he pinned both articles on the wall of his converted gym as he battled back from a groin injury.

The 2006 Footballer of the Year wrote: "Many the time that summer that article got me up in the morning and I'd be there, gritting my teeth, thinking, Joe Brolly, you f**kin' bo***x, I'll show you if it's the last thing I do."

After winning the 2014 All-Ireland, Donaghy famously roared into the camera: "What do ya think of that Joe Brolly?"

When Donaghy was asked by fan on Twitter today if he would travel to Antrim for a book signing, 'Star' said he'd have to be invited by Joe Brolly and that's when the fun began.

Still no love lost between the pair.
