Tormented by injury, Richie Power celebrates 'perfect end' with Carrickshock in All-Ireland

Power and Carrickshock were 15-point winners against Ahascragh-Fohenagh of Galway on Saturday.

RICHIE POWER KNOWS what it takes to win an All-Ireland hurling title — he has nine of them from his time with Kilkenny.

But without doubt it is the 10th, won on Saturday with his club Carrickshock, that will endure as the most special of them all.

Tormented by injury which forced him to retire from inter-county hurling at the age of 29, Power kept hurling at club level with his sights set on one more big Croke Park day.

He lined out alongside brothers John and Jamie in the intermediate hurling decider and finished with six points as Carrickshock walloped Ahascragh-Fohenagh of Galway.

“Thanks to everyone for the good luck msgs today,” he tweeted on Saturday night.

“Words can’t describe this feeling, it will never be forgotten and a perfect end.”
