Born in Lixnaw, County Kerry, Fitzmaurice was introduced to Gaelic football in his youth. He enjoyed some success at schools' level with Gaelcholáiste Chiarraí while simultaneously enjoying championship successes at underage levels with the Finuge club. An All-Ireland medal winner in the intermediate grade, Fitzmaurice has a unique collection of Kerry novice, junior, intermediate and senior medals with the Finuge club and the Feale Rangers divisional side. As a dual player he also won three championship medals with the Lixnaw senior hurling team.
Fitzmaurice made his debut on the inter-county scene at the age of sixteen when he first linked up with the Kerry minor team. An All-Ireland medal winner as a non-playing substitute in this grade, he later won two All-Ireland medals with the under-21 team. Fitzmaurice made his senior debut during the 1996-97 league. He went on to play a key role for Kerry in defence during a hugely successful era, and won three All-Ireland medals, six Munster medals and two National Football League medals. He was an All-Ireland runner-up on two occasions.
Fitzmaurice was a member of the Munster inter-provincial team in 2004 but failed to win a Railway Cup medal. Throughout his inter-county career he made 48 championship appearances. Fitzmaurice retired from inter-county Gaelic football on 10 April 2007.
On retiring, Fitzmaurice wrote a column for the Irish Examiner. He quickly became involved in team management as a selector with the Kerry senior team. An All-Ireland winner in this role, he later enjoyed an unsuccessful tenure as manager of the Kerry under-21 team. Fitzmaurice was appointed manager of the Kerry senior team on 27 August 2012. He has since gone on to lead Kerry to several major triumphs, winning five major honours. These include one All-Ireland Championship and three Munster Championships.
