Former Limerick Football manager Mickey Ned O’Sullivan has returned to Inter-County management following his appointment as the Kerry Minor manager.

O’Sullivan, who will replace Pat O’Driscoll, will team up with another Kerry footballing legend, John O’Keefe, after the moves were ratified by the county committee last night inTralee.

O’Keefe will assume the role of selector with a second selector to be announced in due course.

59 year old O’Sullivan meanwhile makes his return to Inter County management having left Limerick last August after 5 years, a period that saw him win the Division 4 title and almost break the Cork-Kerry dominance in Munster.

Speaking to the Irish examiner, O’Sullivan who captained Kerry to the 1975 All Ireland said “It’s a challenge but it’s more than winning minor Championships. It’s about setting up structures, for the development squads as well, and we might have a say in that as well.

“It won’t improve matters overnight maybe but it’s about structures being addressed so that players have a higher intensity of coaching and preparation.

“I am not saying it wasn’t there, but we are obviously not producing minors for some reason and what we aim to do is improve the whole structures up along from Under-15.”
