Multi All Ireland winner Kevin McManamon let’s us into his Spotify playlist to get in the mood for tomorrow’s Final
We know he’s a massive music fan. Hell he can even hold a tune as we’ve witnessed on a fair few occasion after All Ireland Finals. And Kevin McManamon has shared his Spotify playlist ahead of tomorrow’s massive clash with Kerry.
The St. Judes players name is synonymous with Dublin v Kerry games over the years. And it probably sends chills down the spines of Kerry players and supporters alike. It’s no wonder he’s been given the nickname “The Kerry Killer”
In 2011 with seven minutes remaining in the All Ireland Final, Cian O’Sullivan sent in the perfect ball which was met me Alan Brogan. One solo and had pass was delivered to McManamon who’d built up a head of steam off Brogan’s right. As Kevin turned one defender he bore down and buried the ball low past the Kerry’s Brendan Kealy and into the net.
Rumour has it that sent Dublin fans on the Hill into rapture. And the rest is history.
Not to leave that as Kevin’s only shining moment he struck again in 2013, when Dublin met Kerry in the Semi Final.
Cluxton launched a colossal kick out to the middle of the field and among the scramble for the breaking ball Michael Darragh MacAuley got a fist to it.
His fisted effort found McManamon. He ran into the heart of the Kerry defence and broke Kerry hearts once again with a beautiful strike past Kiely into the top right corner.
Those two goals, if nothing else, have put Kevin McManamon permanently into the Dublin Football History books. And deservedly so.
Listen to what Kevin’s listening to
But back to Kevin’s musical tastes. And his playlist cued up for tomorrow’s journey to Croke Park.

But there’s some massive tunes in there from Oasis, Bloc Party, LCD Sound System and The 1975.
