Eoin Kelly Wins While Tipperary Lose Out

Eoin Kelly and Sarah Maher

Kilkenny launched their National Hurling League campaign under lights with a 1-17 to 1-10 win over Tipperary in a repeat of last year’s All-Ireland final.

Gearoid Ryan grabbed an early Tipperary goal, but the Cats hit back with a string of points, with John Mulhall and Michael Fennelly on top form, to lead by 0-13 to 1-7 at half-time.

Colin Fennelly’s second half goal set Kilkenny on their way to a Semple Stadium victory which reversed the outcome of last September’s dramatic Liam McCarthy Cup decider,  making it a losing start for the new Tipp Manager Declan Ryan.

The Tipperary team were skippered by centre-back Conor O’Mahony, in the absence of Eoin Kelly, who missed his team’s crunch match tonight, having wed his long-term partner Sarah Maher in her home town of Ballingarry South just yesterday.

Team mates and friends turned up at the church in mixed weather to see Eoin and Sarah tie the knot, before the couple jetted off on honeymoon to Italy.

To Eoin and Sarah go best wishes to you both for a happy, healthy and prosperous life together, from all your many friends and supporters here in Co.Tipperary.
