Back in the late '90s/early 2000s Kildare were many people's second favourite team.
Players like Glenn Ryan, Dermot Early, John Doyle and Anthony Rainbow drove the team to two Leinster titles in 1998 and 2000 and also the 1998 All-Ireland football final where they lost to Galway.
The team played an attractive brand of football but it was the identity of the manager which won the hearts of many neutrals.
Mick O'Dwyer had managed his native Kerry to eight All-Irelands in the 1970s and '80s and he was attempting to become the first manager to manage two different teams to All-Ireland victory.
Fresh from Micko's reunion with Sam Maguire in July which captured many hearts, members of that Kildare side paid the legend a visit in his native Waterville on Tuesday.
