Ireland’s most accomplished explorer and mountaineer Pat Falvey has been appointed to Kerry’s senior football backroom team.
The Cork native takes up the role of sports performance coach with the Kingdom ahead of their 2021 campaign.
His appointment was confirmed by Kerry chairman Tim Murphy at last night’s monthly meeting of the county committee.
Falvey became the first person to complete the Seven Summits twice after reaching the summit of Mount Everest from both the Tibetan (1996) and Nepalese sides (2003).
That was a long County Board meeting but it is official and does confirm today’s newspaper reports by some undistinguished journalist that Pat Falvey is the new Sports Performance Coach with @Kerry_Official senior squad - let’s hope if he leads them up the mountain - they return— Mortimer Murphy (@MortimerMurphy1) February 22, 2021
