The first Wexfordman to represent Ireland on an international rugby team, has been honoured by having a roundabout named after him.
Carcur roundabout on the outskirts of town has been officially named the 'Seamus Kelly Roundabout.'
The naming ceremony was performed by Mayor of Wexford, Cllr. George Lawlor, in the presence of family and friends of the late sportsman who played hurling and football at Wexford CBS and St. Peter's College before taking up rugby in Clongowes Wood.
Mayor Lawlor said he was honoured to name the roundabout after him.
'It is a small but not insignificant gesture by the local authority on behalf of the people of Wexford town,' he said.
'It is a way of saying thank you for your prowess and greatness on the field,' said the Mayor, adding that the roundabout's location is appropriate given the sportsman's connections with nearby Wexford Wanderers.
