Just saw there that Moss Keane has died:

From RTE.ie:
The death has taken place of the former Irish rugby international Moss Keane at the age of 62.

The Kerry native was capped 51 times for Ireland, making his debut in Paris in 1974.

He toured New Zealand in 1977 with the British and Irish Lions and was also a part of the famous Munster side of 1978 that defeated New Zealand in Thomond Park.

Keane also played Gaelic football and represented his native county in the U-21 grade and won Sigerson Cup honours with UCC.

Moss Keane is survived by his wife Anne and his two daughters Sarah and Anne Marie.

Jaysus he was a hero of mine when I was little. I remember my auld fella pointing him out to me in a tent at Laytown races, the bar knowing my Da!!!! I suppose I would have been 8-9 and he was a giant of a man and head and shoulders above everyone in the room.

He had cancer.

Moss will be sadly missed. A great character and a decent footballer in his day - the famous quote being "a farmer could make a tidy profit on the amount of land it took Moss Keane to turn!"

You'd often see him at Kerry matches in Croke Park.

No words are big enough to describe Moss Keane.

RIP to a true legend.

I heard this story once (I won't vouch for its accuracy). On the 1977 Lions tour some English journalist (Nigel Starmer-Smith or the like) asked Moss what the highlight of the tour was for him.

The Kerryman replied "Hearing that Kerry had beaten Cork in the Munster Football Final".

A couple of sound bites from Moss on RTÉ radio sports news earlier:

On rugby in Kerry: Like pornography - frustrating for the spectators and primarily for the enjoyment of the participants.

On Con Houlihan: He got 95% in his MA in UCC in 1950 and to this day he's wondering what happened to the other 5%.

Big shock to hear this, had a few pints in his company in the landsowne clubhouse a few years back and he was some craic. Never got sick of lads coming up to him taken pics or chatting away.

A true legend. As a young lad I remember Fred Cogley's voice going up an octave every time Moss set off in the direction of the nearest English cranium.

Agony aunt Claire Rayner, 79. We now have the GaaBoard so it shouldn't be too big a void.
