HURLING - The minor hurlers enjoyed a successful weekend when they defeated St. Martin’s and win out the club’s minor hurling tournament, which was run successfully over the summer. The locals enjoyed the better of the exchanges in the opening half, and led by 2-6 to 0-6 at the break. The second half was a more even affair with both sides sharing the scoring spoils. In the end, Conahy continued to hold their two-goal advantage, winning 2-12 to 0-12. Following the game, team captain Eoin Coogan was presented with the tournament trophy by Billy Hennessy, Bórd na n-Óg vice-chairman. Sincere thanks to Carroll’s Garage, Ballyragget, for their sponsorship of the tournament once again. The junior A hurlers bounced back from defeat against Young Irelands to score a good victory over St. Martin’s in the Northern Junior A hurling league/championship in Muckalee on Friday night last. The locals were on top from the early stages in the game and could have been further ahead but for some missed chances. As it was, it wasn’t until the final moments until Conahy confirmed their victory with a well-taken goal from Shane Brennan, winning in the end by 1-17 to 0-11. They were due to face Graigue-Ballycallan last night in their next game and will also travel to Lisdowney to face the home side on Friday night next at 7.30pm.

CAMOGIE - The junior camogie girls suffered a disappointing defeat to O’Loughlin Gaels in their latest game in the St. Canice’s Credit Union All-County League in St. John’s Park on Wednesday night last. The locals began the game very well and thanks to a well taken goal from Hilda Butler led by 1-4 to 0-2 at the interval. However, the city side came thundering back into the game and though Conahy battled back to level the game in the final minutes, O’Loughlin’s secured two late points to win out on a 1-8 to 1-6 score line. The under 12 girls enjoyed a great victory over St. Martin’s in the under-12 county league in Coon on Friday evening last.
