Leonard Patrick "Red" Kelly, CM (born 9 July 1927 in Simcoe, Ontario, Canada) is a former hockey player in the NHL. A solid, playmaking defenceman, he joined the Detroit Red Wings in 1947. In 1954 he won the Norris Trophy as the NHL's top defenceman. Kelly also won the Lady Byng Trophy in 1951, 1953, and 1954 as the NHL's most gentlemanly player. An exceptional player at both ends of the ice, Kelly was known not only for his great checking skills as a defenceman, but also for his exceptional puck-handling and passing skills as well. Kelly used all these elements to help the Red Wings move the puck down the ice very quickly. When injuries hampered the team, he sometimes played as a forward.(a position he adapted to easily when needed) During his years as a Red Wing the team won the Stanley Cup 4 times and Kelly was chosen as a first team All-Star team 6 times.

Ned Kelly's father John 'Red' Kelly from Ireland (2491 words)
John Kelly, father of Ned Kelly was baptised on 20th February 1820 in Moyglass Church in the Parish of Killenaule in the county of Tipperary Ireland
The Kelly homestead in Clonbrogan, marked on the maps of the 1840’s, is long gone, but the Kelly story still arouses great interest both here in Ireland and in Australia where, later on, six of the seven Kelly children journeyed when they left their Tipperary home.
John Kelly, Ned’s father, came from Moyglass and was transported in 1841 to Van Diemens Land for the stealing of two pigs, and it was this local connection that prompted the format of the whole evening.
