This Tony Kelly Point Has People Certain That It's 2013 Again

This Tony Kelly Point Has People Certain That It's 2013 Again
By Mary Stafford

The first of two All-Ireland hurling quarter-finals got underway in Páirc Uí Chaoimh this afternoon, throwing up a highly-anticipated clash between Clare and Wexford. With much made of the 'Davy Fitzgerald' factor in the build-up, it was another Clare hero of 2013 that commanded attention shortly after play got underway. Today seemed destined to belong to Tony Kelly.

Dominating the first-half, Clare went in at half-time 0-16 to 0-9 ahead. Although relatively few fans of either side seemed to have decided to spend their Saturday afternoon in Cork, Kelly's performance were a sight to see.

Drawing obvious comparisons to the Hurler of the Year that viewers witnessed with greater regularity five years ago, a first-half that saw the Ballyea man score four points from play are leaving people wondering; is Tony Kelly back?

In this kind of form, Tony Kelly inevitably takes Clare up a few paces. In a stunning first-half performance, this was the pick of his points.
