The White Heat

‘Tomás epitomised everything that Kerry football is all about. He was a warrior.’ Éamonn Fitzmaurice

When Tomás Ó Sé retired from the Kerry senior panel in 2013, he did so as one of the longest-serving players in intercountry history and one of its most prolific winners. In his memoir, an account of his upbringing and time in the Championship cauldron competing alongside and against the sport’s modern greats, Tomás writes candidly about life as a member of Ireland’s greatest sporting dynasty.


‘Love of family, love of Kerry, love of sport shines throughout this wonderful memoir.’ The Irish Independent

‘The humour and dark wit that accompanied his brilliance come to the fore throughout.’ The Irish Examiner

‘Tomás Ó Sé lets us in on a few secrets in The White Heat.’ The Irish Times
