Kilkenny All-Ireland Junior Hurling Jersey, 1914

Clare hurlers recorded a historic double in 1914 when both the Senior and Junior teams won All-Ireland honours for the first time, beating Laois and Kilkenny respectively.

Jack Spellissy (father of local historian Sean Spellissy), Parnell Street, Ennis, who was a member of the junior team that defeated Kilkenny, received this jersey from an opponent that day.

Jack's brother Sham (James) played corner forward on the senior team that won the All-Ireland the same year.
