A young father who was critically injured following the All-Ireland qualifier between Kilkenny and Waterford earlier this month is making significant progress.
James Kelly from Ballyragget, a brother of hurler Kevin who is a forward on the Kilkenny senior team, had attended the match in Semple Stadium in Thurles and was involved in a collision with a vehicle after the match.
He was being treated at Cork University Hospital but has been transferred to South Tipperary General Hospital in recent days and is expected to make a full recovery.
