A Kerry senior and minor footballer kept their promise to Donal Walsh

Barry-John Keane and Cormac Coffey took the two All-Ireland trophies to the teenager’s grave.

DONAL WALSH’S BATTLE with cancer was a nationwide story last year due to the teenager’s bravery when dealing with the illness. Before he died Barry-John Keane and Cormac Coffey, clubmates of Walsh at Kerins O’Rahilly’s, promised they would win the senior and minor All-Ireland titles to honour his memory.

Both Kerry teams kept up their end of the bargain and Keane and Coffey brought the trophies to Walsh’s grave to pay their respects.

Really nice touch from the two lads to pay tribute to such a heroic person.

Good news Tipp fans, your hurling manager is close to staying on for 2015

The Allstars – Mahers look nailed on to win but will Cillian Buckley complete half-back line?
