Lee Power confident of bright future with Blues

"As everyone knows I am the owner of a League One club in England and we wouldn't have the facilities which are at the disposal of Waterford United and to be honest some teams in the Championship would not have them either and that was one of the big attractions about coming to this club especially when you take into account the investment we will be putting into the side and and the development of the young kids which is vital and that was a big selling point.

I was impressed with the underage teams at the club and now with the Under 15 League coming into place it gives us a blank canvas to work off and it gives us the opportunity to run a proper academy just like we have in the

Nire drive

A stunning display and five points from corner forward Conor Glleson sent Nire through to their third Provincial final after they overcame Cork representatives Carbery Rangers. At Clonakilty GAA Grounds on Sunday last. This was a superb performance from the men from Ballymacarbry which saw them into their second final in three years and the first occasion that a club representating the Deise overcome their Cork counterparts in the Munster campaign at Senior Footbal level.

The game before an attendance of just under two thousand had a gripping finale and saw the teams go into extra time having been level 1-11 apiece after the regulation time had passed. However, it was Nire who proved the stronger in those extra periods with 1-4 as against just a brace for the West Cork side.

Nire back on top

Fraher Field in Dungarvan was in top condition for the final of the Waterford Senior Football Championship on Sunday last. Both protagonists Nire and Ballinacourty had shown impressive form on their way to the decider with both clubs making every effort to wrest back the Conway Cup. Stradbally the present holders of the competition had been beaten in 2014 by Nire and 2013 by Ballinacourty so there was no doubt both clubs had a "feel" for winning, With the winner going into the Provincial competition in a week's time there was every reason to believe that they would leave everything on the pitch to achieve a result last weekend. Although conditions could be described as mild, what little there was helped Ballinacourty in the opening half.

Nire were quickly on the attack in the opening minutes and Conor

Waterford United  2  St Patrick's Athletic  3

Referee Johnny Murphy of Limerick delayed the start a few minutes on advice as the swelling crowd outside the ground were making their way in.


Both teams began with a defensive set up which also saw Thurles full back Ronan Maher move out to the half line to help nullify the threat of Pauric Mahony and his pacy half forward line. Centre back Padraig Maher played a sweeping role behind brother and county colleague
