John Dowling

Inspirational Leader

John Dowling was one of the most inspirational footballers of his era, winning 3 county senior championships with the club and famously captaining Kerry to the All Ireland senior win in 1955 when Kerry overcame the all conquering Dubs.
In a 10 year period from 1951-1961 he won 6 Munster senior medals, 2 All Ireland senior medals and 2 National League medals with the county.
His grandson Barry John Keane is one of our current stand out players and is the proud holder of an All Ireland senior medal garnered in 2014.
