DO YOU KNOW of a faster try scored in the history of the All-Ireland league?

It’d be hard to beat Tullamore winger Jordan Conroy’s effort last Saturday in their clash against Ards in Division 2B of the competition sponsored now by Ulster Bank.

Conroy showed a brilliant burst of speed to weave through the Ards rearguard and touch down after just 21 seconds. That set the tone for a comfortable afternoon for the Offaly club as they ran out 60-10 victors at Spollanstown.
