The Gaelic footballer who's won nearly every prize in the game:
Including 5 All-Irelands & 8 All-Stars.

'You need a boot to kick and hands and shoulders to mark
your opposition. But without a sharp brain, you'll never make
it as a Kerry footballer.'

Follow Colm from his days as a tiny, freckle-faced kid - the youngest of seven in a GAA-mad family from Killarney - all the way to Croke Park, where he won five All-Ireland titles. This is the story of how a boy who everyone said wasn't big enough or strong enough to wear the green and gold jersey of Kerry became one of the greatest Gaelic footballers of all time.
