West Coast Eagles


Niamh Kelly

30 August 1995

Lightning-quick midfielder Niamh Kelly has embarked on her AFLW journey having established herself as a star of Ireland's Gaelic Football ranks, where she was captain of County Mayo's representative side in 2019.

After leading the county to an All-Ireland final, West Coast swooped on Kelly as an international rookie in May 2019. The pacy wing proved herself as a domineering force in the Eagles' first AFLW season, finishing equal eighth at the Club Champion awards. In 2021, the cross-code athlete further developed her craft in the midfield and forward line, alongside sister and fellow County Mayo product, Grace.
