38-year-old Eoin Kelly scored 2-5 as Mullinahone regained their top flight senior status in Tipperary at Lorrha-Dorrha's expense this afternoon.

The 2010 Tipperary All-Ireland SHC winning captain led by example as the Kickhams claimed victory by 4-18 to 2-19 in a thrilling Seamus O Riain final at Semple Stadium. Michael Dunne also netted a couple of goals for Mullinahone who were 1-13 to 1-8 ahead at half-time. 

It's 18 years since veteran forward Kelly led Mullinahone to their first and only Tipperary SHC title win, firing 2-7 in the final against Thurles Sarsfields.

That's another medal for his impressive collection that includes two All-Ireland SHC souvenirs, two national league titles and five Munster SHC medals.
