Kerry GAA have announced that Paul Murphy will captain the county’s footballers this year. From the Rathmore club, Murphy, 29, is an All-Ireland medallist from 2014 when he also won an All Star at corner back.

He takes over from his East Kerry team-mate David Clifford, who led Kerry in a traumatic year which saw them lose their Munster title for the first time in eight years after defeat by Cork in the dying seconds of the provincial semi-final.

Daniel Collins, 27 this year, whose goals helped Kerry to a first McDonagh Cup final last year, will captain the county hurlers in 2021.
