  • When Jack O'Connor took over as Kerry football manager in 2004, he was a relative unknown. Three All-Ireland finals, and two titles, later, he stepped down, having established himself as one of the greats. Keys to the Kingdom is his vivid account of those three seasons in the most high-pressure job in Irish sport.

Jack O'Connor, a native of Dromid in south Kerry, managed at club and inter-county underage level before becoming manager of the Kerry seniors and winning two All-Ireland titles in three years.
