Sean Kelly voted Footballer of the Week

The public has voted Galway’s Sean Kelly the footballer of the Week.

The classy defender received 3,630 votes on the GAA’s Official Instagram page which put him ahead of Kerry’s Stephen O’Brien (3345) and Donegal’s Jamie Brennan (2963)

Sean Kelly – Galway

Full-back has been a problem position for some time for Galway but team-captain, Sean Kelly, has looked very impressive in it this year. He excelled again in the Connacht semi-final against Leitrim, not only with his defensive nous but also his ability to power up the field to initiate attacking thrusts.

Stephen O’Brien – Kerry

Even when Kerry struggled to play with fluency against Cork in Saturday’s Munster semi-final, they could rely on O’Brien to bring the fight to the rebels. He scored two points from play and ran himself into the ground.

Jamie Brennan – Donegal

In an Ulster semi-final that ebbed and flowed, Jamie Brennan was a consistent attacking threat for Donegal against Cavan. He finished an impressive afternoon’s work with four points from play.

Players of the Week are decided based on votes cast by followers of the Official GAA Instagram page.
