Tipperary's Eoin Kelly picked on best hurling team of the past 25 years

Eoin Kelly a unanimous choice for a corner forward berth.

 

Tipperary hurling legend Eoin Kelly is the only Tipperary player on the best team of the past 25 years chosen by former RTE commentator Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh and former Cork great Seán óg Ó hAilpín.

As part of Centra’s #WeAreHurling campaign, the company brought two hurling legends together to pick a combined team of the last 25 years.

 Eoin Kelly, who captained Tipperary to the All Ireland title in 2010, was an easy selection at corner forward, having been chosen in both Seán Óg’s and Micheál’s teams. 

Tommy Dunne narrowly missed out however, losing out to Cork’s Ben O’Connor.

1)      Dónal Óg Cusack        (Cork)
