Another Kerry Star Gone Down Under

Deividas Uosis was four years old when his family moved from Lithuania in 2004.He started playing gaelic football for his local club Dingle where his talent was evident but the success he had with his school Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne brought him to wider attention.

Uosis is comfortable playing in goal and outfield,He impressed for Dingle and Kerry in the underage ranks.He has showcased his versatility for schools side PS Chorca Dhuibhne, the West Kerry outfit winning Corn Uí Mhuirí titles in 2018 and 2019. Uosis was full-forward for that success two years ago, scoring 0-3 in the final victory, before starting in goal for their other win.

Having signed a contract with the top flight club early last year, the 20-year-old had hoped to be in Australia with the Lions last summer, but Covid-19 put the move on hold until now. 

He will join county colleagues, Mark O’Connor, also from the same Dingle club, and Stefan Okunbor, who are both with Geelong, in Australia, having tested impressively in the AFL’s Europe Combine
