On what would have been Ó Sé’s 60th birthday, hundreds gathered at Ard a’Bhóthair at the memorial.

Mick O’Dwyer was on hand to pull the Kerry colours to unveil the statue, which is located beside a plaque outlining his many achievements as a player and manager.

The statue, which is the work of sculptor Seamus Connolly, will ensure Ó Sé’s legacy will live on for generations to come.

Ó Sé passed away suddenly in December 2012 at the age of 57.
