The best full forward of the last 15 years, as voted by our judging panel, is Tipperary's Eoin Kelly.

In 2001, at 19 years of age, Eoin Kelly would play a major role as the Premier County went through the season unbeaten, winning the National League and Liam McCarthy Cup.

The Mullinahone clubman is one of the most naturally gifted strikers of the ball in the game, and has been a consistent presence for Tipperary in times good and bad.

So much so that he's expected to play a part in this Sunday's All Ireland final against Kilkenny at Croke Park.

Back in that 2001 decider, Kelly would score 7 points, his free taking a major asset for the blue and gold.

9 years later, in 2010, he would captain Tipperary to the All Ireland title, denying Kilkenny 5 in a row.

Eoin Kelly has always been there, popping the sliotar over the bar.

He's been honoured with 6 All Star awards as a mark of his longevity at the top with Tipp.

Congratulations to Grainne Rogers who picked Eoin and who has won the county jersey of her choice.

Tomorrow we will reveal the second corner forward and final position on the 15 for 15.
