Proud Kerry club hold homecoming for Fitzgibbon Cup-winning star and UCC team-mates

Second-year student Shane Conway picked up his first Fitzgibbon Cup medal last weekend.

SHANE CONWAY AND the victorious UCC team brought the Fitzgibbon Cup to his home club in Lixnaw, Kerry last night.

Conway scored six points as UCC defeated Mary I in the third-level hurling decider on Saturday to complete the Fitzgibbon-Sigerson double for the first time since 1988. 

It was a proud moment for the popular Conway, who was the only player from a county outside of Division 1 to feature in the 2-21 to 0-13 victory.

In proper GAA fashion, the UCC team were introduced to the crowd on the back of a lorry at Foley’s Cross in Lixnaw.
