Geaney convinced Kerry will win All-Ireland

Kerry forward Paul Geaney is convinced the Kingdom will end Dublin's dominance of the Championship by winning the 2018 All-Ireland SFC title.

Geaney, Kerry's only representative in this year's All-Star team, won the All-Ireland title in 2014 and is confident of adding another Celtic Cross to his collection in 2018.

"Is Kerry far away? Not at all," Geaney told the Kerryman. "I don't think any of the top three are, top four maybe, depending on what strides are made in the coming year.

"I think they are closely grouped together, obviously with Dublin out in front at the moment, but once that grip starts to loosen you never know.

"Every year I come back I'm extremely confident. I say it outright that we're going to win the title. It's my complete belief every year I've been involved that we're going to win the All-Ireland.

"Unfortunately, we've only done it once since I've been a Kerry player, but it's exciting. Whatever I did last year is history now as well and I've to better it this year."

Fionn Fitzgerald has been confirmed as Kerry captain for 2018, replacing his Dr Crokes' team-mate Johnny Buckley.

The 27-year-old was co-captain alongside Kieran O'Leary when the Kingdom last won the Sam Maguire by beating Donegal 2-09 to 0-12 in the 2014 final.

Fitzgerald has won three Munster titles. an Allianz League title and the All-Ireland in his five seasons as a Kerry footballer.

Kerry begin their Division 1 campaign at home to Donegal on Sunday, 28 January, and will face Clare or Limerick in the Munster Championship semi-final on 2 June.
