Daniel 'Danno' O'Keeffe (1907 – 2 June 1967) was an Irish sportsman. He played Gaelic football with Kerins O'Rahilly's and was a member of the Kerry senior inter-county team from 1931 until 1948. O'Keeffe is universally regarded as the greatest Gaelic football goalkeeper of all-time.
In a senior inter-county career that spanned two decades, O'Keeffe won every honour in the game at senior level. He became the first player to win seven All-Ireland medals, a record which wasn't exceeded until 1986. O'Keeffe's appearance in ten All-Ireland finals was also a long-held record. He won a record thirteen Munster medals, (Still holds the title) one National Football League medal and three Railway Cup medals with Munster.
O'Keeffe has also been the recipient of many awards off the field. He was posthumously named on the GAA's Football Team of the Century and the Team of the Millennium, cementing his reputation as Gaelic football's greatest-ever custodian.
O'Keeffe was married to Maureen Moriarty and is survived by his 2 Children, Dónal & Maura, 8 Grand Children, Mary, Helen, Dónal, Padraig, Alida, Danielle, Gráinne and Barbara and 12 Great Grand Children. Brian, Alanah, Robin, Bronwyn, Ciaran, Ogie, Tadhg, Lucy, Noah, Emma, Zara and Aurelia.
