It was always going to be a Clare winner of the GAA.ie Hurling Player of the Week award this week, given that all three nominees were from the Banner County following their brilliant All-Ireland semi-final victory over Limerick.
The votes have been counted and the verdict is pretty clear - Clare's teenage star Tony Kelly has taken the award with the vast majority of the votes cast.
The Ballyea man delivered a performance of class and maturity throughout for Clare in their 1-22 to 0-18 victory, hitting 0-4 from play and putting in a massive effort around the middle third.
Kelly finished ahead of teammates Colin Ryan (2nd) and David McInerney (3rd). Ryan was outstanding from placed balls in the game, knocking over nine frees to go with his two points from play. Full-back McInerney also delivered a towering performance, and his display is rewarded with a podium finish.
GAA.IE HURLING PLAYER OF THE WEEK
1. Tony Kelly (Clare) - 272 votes (62%)
2. Colin Ryan (Clare) - 107 votes (24%)
3. David McInerney (Clare) - 63 votes (14%)
Kelly dominated the vote on both Facebook and Twitter, with his close to 70% support on Facebook driving him towards the prize.
The vote was tight between Ryan and McInerney, but Ryan's greater following on Twitter saw him slip into second spot ahead of the Tulla man.
