Enjoy a unique tour of Croke Park in the company of a GAA legend. A must for all GAA fans, this is your chance to hear first-hand what it's like to take to the field in front of 80,000 fans and play in an All-Ireland final.

During his senior inter-county career, Maurice Fitzgerald won two All-Ireland titles, six Munster championships, a National Football League and three All Star awards.

The Cahirciveen and St. Mary’s clubman made his senior championship debut against Waterford in 1988.  In the same year, he won a coveted Sigerson Cup medal with UCC.  Fitzgerald played his club football with his local club St. Mary's in Caherciveen.  However, it was with divisional side South Kerry that he enjoyed his greatest successes at club level winning three senior county championships.

Maurice Fitzgerald is probably best remembered for his performance in the 1997 All-Ireland Final against Mayo and his legendary sideline point against Dublin in an All-Ireland quarter-final in Thurles back in 2001, the latter was later listed as one of the Top 20 GAA Moments.

In 1997 Kerry defeated Ulster Champions Cavan in the All-Ireland semi-final to qualify for their first All-Ireland final in eleven years.  Mayo, the defeated finalists of the previous year, provided the opposition.  Fitzgerald was the star player for Kerry. He scored nine points throughout the game while Mayo froze and were held scoreless for the last twenty minutes. A 0–13 to 1–7 score line gave Kerry the title and gave Fitzgerald a coveted All-Ireland winners’ medal.  His performances throughout the championship and in the so-called ‘Maurice Fitzgerald final’ earned him a third All Star award and he was also named GAA All Star Footballer of the Year and Texaco Footballer of the Year.
