Tadhg Kennelly has decided to call time on his AFL career, as he bids to follow in his father’s footsteps by winning an All-Ireland with Kerry. Explaining his decision, Kennelly told his team-mates ‘I want to go back home, to be with my family and to be fit enough to still play back at home.
‘It has been on my mind and making this decision is on par with me coming out here in the first place… it is a risk. It has been a great ten years at the Sydney Swans and I want to thank everyone who has been involved in my career out here.
‘But I am hanging up the AFL boots and going back to be with my family.’
