Tony Kelly voted GAA.ie Hurler of the Week
Tony Kelly is the GAA.ie Hurler of the Week!
The Clare star received 8,358 votes from the public which saw him finish slightly ahead of Waterford’s Jamie Barron (8,327) and Cork’s Robert Downey.
Tony Kelly (Clare)
Another weekend, another sensational display by Tony Kelly for Clare. He scored 1-12 for Clare in their All-Ireland SHC Qualifier defeat to Cork and would have completed a sensational injury-time comeback for the Banner had his last-gasp shot not been brilliantly saved by Patrick Collins.
Jamie Barron (Waterford)
Jamie Barron provided much of the power for Waterford’s electric win over Galway in Saturday’s All-Ireland SHC Round 2 Qualifier. He scored four points and some of his link play in the middle of the field was a joy to watch.
Robert Downey (Cork)
Downey produced a towering display at full-back for Cork in their victory over Clare. He held the dangerous Aron Shanagher scoreless and made two goal-saving tackles.
