Former Kerry Minor Captain Not Leaving AFL Any Time Soon

A recent All-Ireland minor winning captain won’t be returning to the Kerry jersey in the short-term.

Dingle native Mark O’Connor, who captained the Kerry Minor Football team in 2015, is two-and-a-half years into a professional AFL contract with Geelong.

In recent weeks, he scored his first points for the side and has played a big part in their opening league games this term.

Speaking on Terrace Talk last night, O’Connor said even though he is delighted for the younger players, he’s not planning to return anytime soon.
