Coolmeen's Frank Kennedy, now a retired Garda Sergeant was one of Clare's greatest footballers ever recorded. The gentle giant gave close on four decades to the playing field. He proudly played with Coolmeen, Clare, Munster and the Irish Garda Team. In this short summary we get a glimpse of Frank while representing Clare, Munster and the Garda team. His collection of medals from his career are a treasure. Frank is a real gentleman, a humble and refined individual. In this short tribute we salute a proud son of Coolmeen and Clare.
