Borris-Ileigh's Brendan Maher celebrates

Borris-Ileigh manager Johnny Kelly was gushing in his praise of Brendan Maher after his masterful performance against St Thomas' yesterday.

Picking up from where he left off against Ballygunner in the Munster final, the Tipperary star scored 0-10 as Borris-Ileigh prevailed by 1-21 to 1-14 at the LIT Gaelic Grounds to reach their first All-Ireland club SHC final in 33 years.

"Brendan is one of the greatest hurlers I’ve ever seen anyway," Kelly said in the Irish Daily Star. 

"He’s a pleasure to coach. There’s no airs or graces about Brendan, he’s a Borris-Ileigh man first, a Tipperary man second, and he doesn’t need any words of mine today to recognise how great a player he is.”
