Donaghy hints at Kerry return


Kieran Donaghy has indicated that he will return for Kerry in 2016.

Donaghy has been a key member of the Kerry squad since making his debut in 2005, winning four All-Ireland titles and six Munster crowns in his time with the Kingdom, but injuries have started to take their toll on the Austin Stacks clubman.

In the wake of Kerry's All-Ireland SFC final defeat to Dublin, the 32-year-old admitted he was unsure whether to extend his inter-county career by another season.

However, he has been working on his fitness and has hinted that he will make himself available to manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice in 2016.

"It’s a huge privilege and an honour to be even thinking about going back playing with Kerry because when I was a youngster, I was waiting for that call to come in for the winter for Kerry training," Donaghy told Radio Kerry's Terrace Talk.

"It’s great to have that knowledge, knowing that if I get in good shape and I’m in shape that’s eligible to play for Kerry, that I’ll be able to go in there and give it my best shot again with the lads.

"We’ll make that decision in the New Year. Up until January, it’s about getting as fit as I can get."
