There’s a terrific interview with Stephen Kelly in today’s Irish Post looking ahead to his chances with Ireland at Euro 2012 this summer.

It includes a few great stories of how a young Kelly was always Paul McGrath during the playground kickabouts, how he made his way as a youth international with Ireland, the role his supportive father still plays in his football career and how the Kellys can glide around London almost unnoticed. You suspect that it was written before the Christmas period as it hints at the full-back’s unspoken frustration at not being in the Fulham team.
