Conahy’s Edmond is All-Ireland FÁ©ile na nGael Skills Champion

By Mary Morgan Mon 9th Jul

Sportsmen and sportswomen the world over strive for excellence and perfection in their respective sports. Many achieve excellence, but very few ever attain perfection.
Last Saturday in Parnell Park, Dublin Conahy Shamrocks hurler, Edmond Delaney, achieved perfection by scoring full marks in the 2012 Féile na nGael skills competition.
Edmond was crowned the most skilful Under 14 hurler in Ireland and in attaining full marks he became the first hurler to achieve this feat at the annual hurling skills event.
Edmond was unlucky not to win last year’s event in Galway, but there was no denying him this year. The many hours spent practicing his skills at the Polo Grounds in Jenkinstown has finally paid off for Edmond.
Congratulations Edmond – your family and your club are both very proud of your achievement and we have no doubt you will now follow in the footsteps of many other Féile na nGael skills winners and win more awards on the playing fields.
It was a truly historic day for the Conahy Shamrocks Club in Parnell Park as Danielle Morrissey represented Kilkenny in the Féile na nGael Camogie skills competition. Although she was not successful, Danielle gave a superb performance.
Danielle recently captained the Conahy Primary Schools team to County Final success and just like Edmond Delaney, she will be hoping to qualify again next year to represent Kilkenny in the camogie skills finals when the competition will be held in Limerick. Danielle is, in fact, eligible to participate in the Féile na nGael Camogie skills competition for the next two years.
Congratulations to our two wonderful skilful stars
