Tadhg Kennelly Wasted No Time Correcting Aussie Commentator About Irish Player's Origin

Essendon romped to an easy win against Port Adelaide in the AFL on Saturday.

Among the Essendon roster is Tyrone man Conor McKenna. The 21-year-old is fast becoming an exciting player for the Melbourne side, this season establishing himself as a first-team regular.

Going into the game against Port Adelaide, McKenna was averaging an impressive 16 disposals per game. His contribution on Saturday was not missed by the Channel 7 commentary team.

However, their geographical knowledge was lacking as they suggested that Tyrone was located in 'northern England'.

McKenna, what an impressive player he's becoming. Conor McKenna, from Tyrone in northern England.

As observed on commentary, former Sydney Swans player Tadhg Kennelly was 'watching like a hawk'. The Kerryman wasted no time letting them know their mistake.

We don't do corrections too often on Saturday night footy but I got a very sharp message from Tadhg Kennelly saying 'Northern Ireland, not northern England.'

A slip of the tongue from me. I apologise Tadhg and I apologise Conor.
