A LOT has changed since Kerry last won the All-Ireland, back in 2009 only a handful of Kerry players had a presence on social media, usually the odd Bebo account.

Now it’s almost obligatory for today’s stars to keep their public up to date with their thoughts and activities (as well as a little promotion work for companies whose products they endorse of course).

Here is how some of the 2014 All-Ireland Champions reacted to their win on social media and a few other sports people as well.

Our roving ‘full back’ and Tralee-based Gardai, Aidan O’Mahony, aptly paraphrases deceased rocker Lou Reed.

As the Kerry team were about to depart Dublin with Sam on Monday, Marty Morrissey, made sure Aidan was looking sharp enough for the homecoming.

And he was!

Now one of the elder statesmen of the group, Darran O’Sullivan, shows one of the ways he looks after the younger guys.

A dream come true for Kerins O’Rahilly’s and Kerry minor wing back, Cormac Coffey, as he gets his hands on the Tom Markham Cup in Croke Park.

The future is bright. Two of our young stars, Paul Murphy and Paul Geaney, make their way up the steps of the Hogan Stand to collect Sam for the very first time.

All smiles at the after match banquet, perfect conditions for a bit of a sly one from James O’Donoghue to Kieran Donaghy.

While Peter Crowley was about to set foot on the stage at the Ashe Memorial Hall at the homecoming on Monday night, our goalie, Brian Kelly, pranks him with an old classic.

Leinster and Ireland player, Ian Madigan, had these encouraging words to say to Kerry’s Minor corner forward, Killian Spillane.

Staying on the rugby front, Munster legend, Ronan O’Gara, added to the congratulatory tweets.

Westmeath stalwart, Dessie Dolan, papped Marc O’Se and Kieran Donaghy as darkness began to fall on Croke Park.

We’ll leave the last word to one of the legends who just departed the scene and summed up how we all felt on Sunday.
