No chance Tomás will hang up boots - Moynihan

KERRY legend Seamus Moynihan is convinced that Tomás O Sé won't walk away from the green-and-gold in frustration over his latest disciplinary travails.

O Sé is facing a two-match ban following his dismissal against Laois last Sunday - his third straight red in ten months - but Moynihan believes this won't prompt his one-time team-mate to question his Kerry future.

"Here's hoping that he just keeps with the whole thing because that can certainly bring you down. I would imagine Tomás might be questioning whether he wants to stay involved or not. But no doubt he will," said Moynihan, who called time on his own stellar career in the wake of Kerry's 2006 All-Ireland triumph.

He then reiterated: "I think he'll definitely stay on. He's in great shape. The most important thing is that he's right for championship... the ó Sés have always put Kerry first. I can't see Tomás doing any different anyway at the minute."

He described ó Sé's latest suspension - which will sideline him for Kerry's concluding Division One round against Mayo plus their league semi-final - as a "lesson" for the player, who is facing his fourth such punishment since 2010.

"Look, Tomás owes nothing to Kerry. In fairness to the guy, he's actually in great shape. I've never seen him as fit at this time of the year," the Glenflesk man pointed out.

"Last weekend was just very disappointing. As a personal friend of Tomás, I just felt gutted for the man when I saw him being sent off. He did rise the hand. He knew himself it was a sending-off offence."

Moynihan added: "He'll be the most disappointed person of all. He'll know he's let himself down and let Kerry down, but there's no better man to bounce back."
