And Kerry senior Buckley also highlighted one of the Dr Crokes supporters, 10-year-old Amy O’Connor who has been battling illness over the past year. She was brought up to the podium in the Hogan Stand to lift the Andy Merrigan Cup with Buckley.

It was a lovely moment and Buckley referenced the major impression that Amy had made when talking to team in the build-up to the final.
The Kerry senior emulated his father Mike – a current selector and member of the 1992 Dr Crokes team – in winning today.
Dr Crokes have had plenty All-Ireland disappointments over the last decade with three semi-final losses and a defeat in a final replay. They’ll appreciate this breakthrough.
Incredible gesture by @BuckleyJohnny super player but an even better guy! 👏👏👏
