TADHG KENNELLY HAS said he will consider returning to play for Kerry in the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship next year.

Speaking to RTÉ Sport, Kennelly said he had yet to decide on his future, but indicated he would strongly consider a return for Kerry next year.

Kennelly previously returned to play for Kerry in 2009, helping them to win the All-Ireland Championship, and becoming the first person to ever win both that title and the AFL Premiership.

And following his recent decision to retire from playing in the AFL with the Sydney Swans, Kennelly would conceivably be available to compete for Kerry next year.

Kennelly previously featured in a number of Kerry underage squads, before undertaking a successful AFL career, which began when he signed a rookie contract with the Sydney Swans in 1999.

However, his priorities currently lie with the Irish International Rules team, as they look to consolidate their impressive 80-36 win over Australia, with a second test victory this Friday.
