Civic reception proposed for Offaly rugby star Jordan Conroy

Jordan Conroy

A PROPOSAL that Offaly County Council hold a civic reception for Tullamore rugby star, Jordan Conroy has been made by Cllr Tony McCormack,

Speaking at last week's meeting of the Municipal District, Cllr McCormack said Jordan Conroy had been named Ireland Sevens Player of the Year in the recently announced Guinness Rugby Writers’ Awards.

This is the second season in succession that the Tullamore native has won this highly coveted accolade.

Jordan was the top try scorer with 28 touchdowns in the HSBC World Series and he was named in the World Series Dream Team.

This latest award caps off a tremendous year for the speedy winger.
