The under-16 camogie girls produced a great performance to edge out O’Loughlin Gaels in the Roinn B county league final in St. John’s Park on Saturday night last. The game was played at a frantic pace all through and the locals had to be at their very best to match the city girls. They managed to do that and thanks to some well taken goals, were able to hold the upper hand. In the end, they had four points to spare, winning by 3-4 to 1-6. Well done to all the players and their mentors Paddy Delaney, Hilda Butler, Mairéad Lawler and Áine Phelan.
TEAM: Sarah Molloy, Evelyn Phelan, Amy Morrissey, Jennifer Healy, Marie Claire Gamble, Roisín Phelan, Siobhán Mullan, Aisling Maher, Megan Randle, Eva Minogue, Carrie Randle, Niamh Delaney, Caoimhe Bergin, Danielle Morrissey, Emma Cahill, Hannah Murphy, Claire Maher.
The junior A hurlers showed some good form in defeating a strong Fenians side in their final round game of the Northern Junior A hurling league in Jenkinstown on Wednesday night last. The locals enjoyed a positive start with some well taken scores early on to lead 2-9 to 0-8 at the half-time interval. The Johnstown men fought back in the second half to close the gap to a single point. But Conahy showed their mettle by finishing with the final three points of the game, winning in the end by 2-14 to 1-13. The locals now face Lisdowney in the opening round of the Northern Junior A championship this coming weekend.
The junior B hurlers were not so fortunate as they bowed out of the Northern Junior B championship at the hands of O’Loughlin Gaels in Freshford on Saturday night last. The locals played very well in the opening half and led by five points at half-time. But the city side proved too strong in the second half and were worthy winners in the end.
The under-16 hurlers enjoyed a high-scoring victory over a tough James Stephens side in their opening round game of the Roinn B championship in Muckalee on Friday night last.

They now face Danesfort tonight (Wednesday) in Palmerstown at 7 p.m. in the championship quarter-final.
