Three-time Kerry All-Ireland winner Jerome O'Shea has died at the age of 87.

The Cahirciveen native made his Championship debut for the county in 1952 and was a substitute for the 1953 triumph over Armagh.

A corner back with renowned fielding ability, the St Mary's man won his first Sam Maguire Cup as a starter in the 1955 victory over Dublin and added another against Galway in 1959. He also won one National League title.

Upon retirement from playing, O'Shea presented RTÉ's first weekly Gaelic Games television show 'GAA World of Sport' while pursuing a PHD in UCD.

He later served in a variety of roles as an economic advisor and representative of the Irish government at the EEC and the United Nations.

O'Shea is survived by wife Margaret and sons Diarmuid, Donal and Conor, former Ireland rugby international and current Italy head coach.
