“Now listen lads, I'm not happy with our tackling. We're hurting them but they keep getting up.”
John Brendan Keane

“A Kerry footballer with an inferiority complex is one who thinks he's just as good as everybody else.”
John Brendan Keane

“The idea often occurred to me that long tedious meetings might easily be subverted by having all chairs removed beforehand. All the participants would be forced to stand regardless of their sex or size and in this way the meeting would come to an end at a reasonable hour... It's the only known method of circumventing large, ponderous bores and there's no better antidote for curbing compulsive talkers. Inevitably somebody is bound to ask why there are no chairs but this can be neatly included under Any Other Business or if the chairman is tough enough he can rule the question is out of order.”
John Brendan Keane, Inlaws and Outlaws
