Kevin Hughes is an All-Ireland-winning Tyrone Gaelic footballer. He was a major figure in Tyrone's midfield on their way to their first ever All-Ireland triumph in 2003, earning the Man of the Match for the All-Ireland final against Armagh.[1]

He has completed the triumvirate of All-Ireland inter-county football medals, having been part of the Tyrone Minor and Under-21 teams that won in 1998 (minor), 2000 and 2001 (both U-21).

Hughes is from a rural club called Killeeshil St. Mary's in County Tyrone, where he is the captain of the senior football team within the club.

In January 2012, Hughes called time on his inter-county career.[2]
