ALL IRELAND CHAMPION-Congratulations to Edmond Delaney who produced a flawless performance to win the All-Ireland Féile na nGael Hurling Skills title in Parnell Park in Dublin on Friday last. This was Edmond’s second year competing in the competition and scored the maximum score of 300 points, showing a superb mastering of all the skill tests involved. It is a great honour for Conahy Shamrocks to have an All-Ireland champion in the club and all in the locality congratulate Edmond on his magnificent achievement.
It was an even historic day for the club as it was also represented by Danielle Morrissey in the camogie skills competition also held in Parnell Park. While Danielle was not successful on this occasion, she is under-age again for next year’s competition and will be hoping to represent the club and county once again.
CAMOGIE-The under-14 girls were very unlucky to be narrowly by St. Brigid’s in the latest Roinn B championship match played in Kilmanagh on Thursday evening last. It was nip and tuck between the two sides all through with no more than one score between the sides all through. However, the home side were able to score the crucial scores when it mattered and won out on a 3-6 to 3-4 score line.

HURLING-The junior A hurlers were unfortunate to be defeated by Young Irelands (Gowran) in the JJ Kavanagh & Sons Northern Junior A league/championship in Jenkinstown on Saturday evening last. After a poor opening half, the locals produced a better performance in the second half to put the Gowran men under increased pressure. After a goal from a Paul Buggy penalty and a subsequent Padraic Nolan point cut the deficit to a single point, Conahy looked like they were making significant progress. However, the visitors regrouped and scored a goal and a number of well-taken points to open up a lead once again. Conahy did have a number of goal chances, but were unable to take any that came their way. In the end, Young Irelands were deserving winners, winning 1-15 to 1-8.
TEAM: Kieran Brennan, Colm Healy, John Mullan, Eoin Coogan, Tom Mullan, Paddy Mullan, Sean Delaney, Tom O’Shea, Eoin Carroll, Michael Bergin, Paul Buggy, Barry Murphy, Tom Phelan, John Feehan, Padraic Nolan.
