“What are the perks? I imagine it’s like being a mobster. You walk into a grocery store and get bumped to the front of the queue…”

The GAA badboy reveals a surprise fondness for ladies clothing

What’s the mood in the Kerry camp on the eve of the championship? I’m going to take a wild guess and say “confident”…
I suppose you could say we’re confident. (laughs) We’re confident every year. It’s impossible to know how things will pan out. But we’re optimistic.

Kerry are reigning champions. Where do you see the biggest threat to your title coming from this year?
Well, Cork are obviously the hot favourites. They’ve made no secret of their ambitions and they’re the team to beat. The Dubs have changed tack. They look a more savvy bunch this year. They’re more defensively minded, more aggressive. And Tyrone are definitely going to be back there with another sting in the tail. Read the rest of this article here.

    Read between the lines… only place you’ll find Mayo.

    I suppose you could say we’re confident [about facing Mayo]. (laughs) We’re confident every year [when Mayo are playing]. It’s impossible to know how things will pan out [but it'd be a pity not to have an easy matchup in Mayo]. But we’re optimistic [that Hardy Bucks gets a tv series].

    Jaw dropping detail by Galvin in the fashion stakes. Only noticed he was posing like a model in the photo you used after reading the article. My mind is blown.

    @ Puke fashion – Never seen any paninis in Croke Park. Unless you were on the premium level in which case you might be a bit on the fancy side yourself. Just saying…

    @ Colin – Well I’d talked to Adrian Russell and another Kerry GAA guy beforehand so I was kinda expecting it, although not the Fashion TV or ladies football references…
