It's been some year for Kerry's David Clifford.
One of the most highly rated minor footballers in recent memory, the Fossa native scored 4-4 in the All-Ireland Minor Final against Derry.
Last week he was named as the Electric Ireland GAA Minor Footballer of the Year, and the form that won him that award, was on show on Saturday as he starred in East Kerry's Minor Championship win.
Starting at full-forward, Clifford scored 0-6 and set up a goal as East Kerry defeated St. Brendans 2-14 to 1-15 in Austin Stack Park.

East Kerry led comfortably at the break by seven points, but only scored four points in the second-half as the Killarney side fought back in an entertaining affair.
Clifford scored three of East Kerry's four points after the break as the regional team held out to secure the minor crown and cap off a great year for the Fossa star.
Speaking earlier this week, Clifford all but ended any talk of him moving to Australia to join an AFL side. With performances like the one shown on Saturday night, Kerry will be delighted to keep him at home.
