The future of Gaelic football is Green and Gold: that is all ye know on Earth, and all ye need know.
Joe Brolly's 2014 opinion that the production line of talent in Kerry had ended was soon thrown back in his face by an exuberant Kieran Donaghy after winning the All-Ireland, and Brolly's words have been further nudged down his throat by an astonishingly talented bunch of Kerry minors.
On Sunday, Kerry won a third All-Ireland minor title in a row, with David Clifford the precocious, freewheeling figurehead of a side that will likely renew their acquaintance with Jack O'Connor to launch a serious assault on Sam Maguire in a couple of years' time.
Despite their latest success, the Kerry Minors have not been given an official homecoming to celebrate.

Instead, the county board have organised an official recognition during a Senior Football Championship double-header on October 2nd.
Not all supporters are happy at the county's decision:

The Kerry minors have had official homecomings in the previous two years, although on both occasions they were accompanied by the senior panel.
