Seamus Kennedy Clonmel Commercials

He wears the number six green and gold jersey of his club Clonmel Commercials.

However the number of the shirt hasn't confined Seamus Kennedy to any position in an all-conquering team that has created history these past few months.

He patrolled not only the area in front of the full back line but the crucial territory around the middle of the field as Commercials embarked on a run that has taken them to within 60 minutes of an appearance in the All-Ireland Club Senior Football Championship Final on St. Patrick's Day.

His ball-winning ability, distribution, strength in the tackle, point-scoring and an uncanny knack of reading the play, and knowing exactly where the ball is likely to land, have all been invaluable in the side's glory run.

Commercials won their 16th County Senior Championship by defeating Moyle Rovers in the final in October but a much greater success was harvested in Mallow on November 29, when they got the better of Nemo Rangers in the final to become the first Tipperary club to win the Munster Club Senior Championship since its inception in 1965.

A string of man of the match awards, including one from the Munster Final, have underlined Seamus Kennedy's contribution to the team's march through the county, provincial and All-Ireland Championships, which will continue when they take on Leinster champions Ballyboden St. Enda's in next month's All-Ireland semi-final.
