New Donegal Best for Kelly

Back in 2013 John Kelly from St Johnstone set a new Irish youth record for the shot at 18.11 a tremendous mark that still stands and is currently under threat from his young brother James . So back then and indeed since u were always wondering could this dedicated young Finn Valley ac member now just short of 21 years and a 3rd year student at Lyit Irish University champion in his event move on become the next great Irish thrower . Well on Sunday in Dublin he got the shot out to a whooping 17.49m and what does that mean well its a new Donegal best he had a 16.  25 from last year its a European B Q standard 1 cm off an A ,Irish u 23 champion and all is well with the world . Not forgetting that with his Dad John they have worked tirelessly over the years to get in the frame and he is heading to Scotland this weekend to drive it on as he says himself before he takes in the Irish senior champs in a few weeks ....
