Kilcoo’s Conor Laverty and Aidan Branagan persuade Mickey Moran to lift the All-Ireland Senior Club Championship trophy

When all eyes were elsewhere following Kilcoo’s All-Ireland Club final victory, manager Mickey Moran did something that few noticed at the time, save for spectator Stephen Annett who had the presence of mind to take a short video that has been viewed almost 150,000 times on Twitter.

Moran dandered towards the Hill 16 goals in the manner of any other 69-year-old man out to get the papers on a Sunday morning. He crouched down just at the small parallelogram and kissed the spot where Jerome Johnston kicked that last-minute All-Ireland-winning goal to grant him coaching immortality.
