Pic: Kerry's 'cunning' All-Ireland final plan revealed
Secret Kerry code encourages the All-Ireland champions to resort to slyness and cunning to repel Dublin’s challenge to their throne.
The highly classified Kingdom charter – the Munster galacticos describe themselves as “assassins” and “2015 champions” – is revealed for the first time today ahead of an Old Firm showdown which could have sold 250,000 tickets.
A green and gold flag listing the core philosophical values of Eamonn Fitzmaurice’s side includes the Spanish word “Picardia”.
It translates as “slyness” or “cunning”, and can even be interpreted as the Spanish equivalent of “cute hoor”.
Other central tenets call on Kerry to be “ruthless”, “egoless”, “aggressive” and “physical”.
Fitzmaurice will be deeply unhappy at the private standard making its way into the public domain just 24 hours after Kerry were labelled the “most cynical team… in many, many years” by former Donegal selector John Duffy.
Despite naming hamstring doubt Cian O’Sullivan in the first XV, Dublin have placed Johnny Small on standby, while speculation continues that Michael Darragh Macauley may be promoted to the starting line-up.
