Tommy Walsh Is Back In The Kerry Fold Again

Tommy Walsh Is Back In The Kerry Fold Again
By PJ Browne Updated

2009 All-Ireland winner, Tommy Walsh, is involved with the Kerry footballers once again.

The 30-year-old left the Kerry squad after the league in 2016, frustrated with his lack of game time as a fringe player in Eamonn Fitzmaurice's group.

20 months earlier - just three weeks after Kerry had won the 2014 All-Ireland - Walsh had returned home after five years in the AFL.

Speaking to Radio Kerry, Walsh's club manager, Micheál Quirke, said the Kerin's O'Rahillys player has been brought in by new Kerry manager, Peter Keane.

"To be honest, I'm not sure what the situation is with Tommy," said Quirke.

He's gone in and he's done some of the conditioning stuff. I assume he's on the panel or whatever. I don't know exactly what his current status is.

Tommy is above in Cork. To protect him during the week, we won't bring him down for training.

If his body is able - and I think it would be able once he'd be managed correctly - I think the guy has definitely got stuff that he can contribute to Kerry.

If he is in there, it's something that he'll be well able for.

Walsh being involved with the Kerry footballers again comes following some superb performances for his club in the Kerry SFC.
