GAA: SO MANY PLOTS.. THIS GAME IS LIKE ONE OF PAIDI'S BIOGRAPHIES; ALL-IRELAND QUALIFIER: KERRY V KILDARE, THURLES, 6.15pm O'Se and O'Dwyer Aim to Write Themselves into the History Books


Byline: Orla Bannon

THE O'Dwyer clan may have top billing, but Mike Frank Russell insists the players will be the centre of attention when Kerry meet Kildare in tonight's intriguing football qualifier.

The clash in Thurles (6.15) promises to be one of the highlights of the summer series.

In the white corner you've got former Kingdom maestro Mick O'Dwyer and his son Karl, desperate to get one over their native Kerry.

While in the green and gold corner Paidi O Se lies in wait, a wounded tiger ready to book a place in the All-Ireland quarter-finals.

Throw in the fact that O'Dwyer's other son John is a Kerry selector and you've got enough sub-plots to fill one of Paidi's autobiographies.

There has been little magic in the Kingdom recently, but a win would change all that.

Last year's semi-final defeat to Meath means Kerry have every incentive to get back to Croker to make amends.

It's a game with everything - but Kerry Allstar Mike Frank Russell insists the players have to do the talking.

He said: "Micko knows our players inside out but we will have to forget about that.

"There's been a lot of talk about Paidi and Micko but that's only a side-show.

"There are a lot of questions to be answered by both teams and the team that has learned the most from their mistakes will win."

There's no doubt both counties are carrying baggage into this game.

Kildare have promised much under O'Dwyer but the All-Ireland still eludes them.

Unless the Waterville man is about to do an Alex Ferguson style U-turn, this will be his last chance to deliver Sam for the Lilywhites.

Ending a 10 year association with the county with defeat to Kerry is the nightmare scenario and that should motivate him and his players even more.

With O'Dwyer, son Karl, Martin Lynch and Glenn Ryan all likely to hang up their boots after this campaign this could well be Kildare's last shot at winning an All-Ireland for a while.

They produced their best football for two years in the Leinster final defeat to Dublin and captain Anthony Rainbow says they can't wait for Kerry. …
