Tony Kelly producing heroics for Ballyea has become a very familiar sight over the course of a campaign that has now brought them all the way to the AIB All-Ireland Club Senior Hurling Final, reports GAA.ie.
Kelly was at it again on Saturday in Semple Stadium as he hoovered up a huge amount of ball in the middle of the pitch and struck three typically classy points. The last of them was the insurance score that Ballyea so badly needed to hold off a spectacular late charge from St. Thomas’ that nearly earned the Galway side a draw.
Players of the Week are decided based on votes cast by followers of @officialgaa on Twitter, on the Official GAA Facebook Page and on the Official GAA Instagram page.
