As backroom teams go, Jack O’Connor’s Kerry network of support and advice comes in a little neater than some of those which have gone before them.

Dublin football and Tipperary hurling were among those backroom teams who, in a quiet moment just hours after an All-Ireland final, would gather for a photograph out on Croke Park just before the bus would pull away, often numbering around 24. Kerry got their ‘memento’ shot in the warm-up room, a cast of around 20, though some who had involvement were not on official team duty on the day.
