PREMIERSHIP defender Tadhg Kennelly has added another accolade to his long list of achievements, having been inducted into the Sydney Swans' Hall of Fame.
The 2005 premiership player was honoured with the induction, along with 1918 premiership captain Jim Caldwell, at the Swans' guernsey presentation on Wednesday night.
Former Swans captain, coach, five-time best and fairest winner and the 1940 Brownlow medallist J. Herbie Matthews was elevated to "Bloods Legend" status, in front of a crowd of more than 650 guests at Sydney's The Star Event Centre.
Kennelly retired on 197 games at the end of 2011 as the only Irish-born player to have won a premiership medallion.
He memorably danced an Irish jig after accepting his medal on the podium after the Grand Final triumph at the MCG.
He is the 60th inductee into the club's Hall of Fame.
Caldwell, a centreman and wingman, joined South Melbourne in 1909 and could have been a premiership player in his first season but was suspended for the decider following an incident in the preliminary final.
He was appointed captain in 1918 and led the team to a win over Collingwood in the Grand Final.
Matthews was inducted into the hall of fame in 2009 as one of 23 former club champions to be honoured at the inaugural event.
He is the fifth player to be elevated to Bloods Legend status along with Bob Pratt, Bob Skilton, Paul Kelly and Peter Bedford.
The 2005 drought-breaking premiership was added to the Swans' heritage list, ahead of the season where the 10-year anniversary of the occasion will be celebrated.
