Kelly and Clancy collect monthly awards


Tipperary hurler Eoin Kelly and Laois footballer Pauric Clancy have been named as the Vodafone GAA All Stars Players of the Month for March.

Both players, who received their awards from GAA president Sean Kelly, have been central figures in their counties' impressive run in this year's National Football and Hurling leagues.

Sharp shooter Kelly bagged a remarkable 5-26 in Tipp's four league games last month while Clancy has been a driving force at midfield for Mick O'Dwyer's Laois who face Armagh at the weekend in the NFL semi-finals.

Sean Kelly, at his first official function following his elevation to office at congress on Saturday said: "I am delighted to have this opportunity of congratulating the two players on their achievements. Their efforts on the field are the inspiration for people like myself in our roles off the field."
