Killarneyman Dick Fitzgerald (1884-1930) is a football legend. He played for Killarney’s Dr Croke’s club, won five All-Ireland medals for Kerry – including being the first player to captain back-to-back All-Ireland-winning teams in 1913 and 1914. He was also a member of the Irish volunteers, interned in Frongoch after the Easter Rising of 1916. He died tragically after a fall from Killarney courthouse two days before the Kerry-Monaghan All-Ireland final of September 1930. Kerry went on to win that final.
