Padraig Kelly Galway Hurling Legend

There have been many Galway legends throughout the years. Some great names from this county echo through the halls of GAA lore and those names have been heard louder in recent times as Galway became All-Ireland champions for the 1st time in 29 years on a day in September that will live long in the memory.

Stories were told of the exploits of campaigns past and how the game has changed and how it used to take a week to come home from an All-Ireland back in the day. “Who was the greatest player you have ever seen?” became a topic of many a kitchen table discussion or heated debate while eating a Supermac’s after a match.

One of those names was Padraig Kelly of the great Sarsfield’s club of the 1990’s. He was considered worthy of Man of the Match in the All-Ireland final in 1993 despite being on the losing team. It was some performance. A performance that earned an accolade that has traditionally gone to a member of the winning side. That year was his second successive All Star and while his time in the maroon and white of Galway was short he made some impact.

This is his story of that game.
