Deenihan to chronicle the glory days of Kerry football

First it was George Lee doing a bit of moonlighting by presenting an RTE special on the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Now his party colleague Jimmy Deenihan is set to pen a new book on the golden years of Kerry football.

And nobody in the Dail is more qualified to write such a book than one of the finest corner-backs the game of football has ever seen - Deenihan himself.

Jimmy will draw on his memories of one of the greatest periods in the Kingdom’s footballing story - including the four-in-a-row high between 1978 and 1981.

It is hoped that the book will be published in the first half of the New Year and proceeds from the sale of the book will be used to pay off the remaining debt of the Lartigue Monorail revival in Listowel - a project close to Deenihan’s heart.
