over the Kingdom.

The final lived up to predictions as one of the finest contests in living memory. The final score of 1-16 to 2-10 reflected the determined passion of both teams as Kerry went for the three-in-a-row and Tyrone fought hungrily for a repeat of the success they first tasted in 2003.

During his undergraduate years Brian played for UCD in the Dublin championship and won a Sigerson Cup medal for the university in 1996.
