In the final few lines of his autobiography, ‘Rucks, Mauls And Gaelic Football’, Moss reflected, in his own inimitable way, on how he would like to be remembered.
“I’m not one that thinks of how I’d like to be remembered or shite like that. I’ve had many great days and I’ve been lucky in life,” he acknowledged.
“I played rugby 51 times for Ireland and made lasting friendships out of the game. What I achieved was certainly against the odds but sport can throw these things up – that’s the beauty of it.
“I’d like to think that success never went to my head and that if someone, somewhere was asked, they might say, ‘Moss Keane? Ah sure, he did his best.’ He did his best. That would do me nicely.”
