Junior Hurling Championship: We play our third game against Ballyduff on Friday next at 7.30pm in Lismore.

Waterford County: Both senior teams exited the championship at the weekend in what had been a far from fruitful scene on the intercounty front. As Ken McGrath stated that "hard work and effort should be guaranteed when putting on the jersey" one ponders what happened for it be missing in the first place....

Player Profile :Jordan Henley

What was the first Tallow game you attended?
Unsure, I presume when I was about 2/3 years old. I would say I was at every Tallow and Waterford game played from that age.

You won an under twenty one title with Waterford , how did you find the experience and the fact you played in goals ? It was a great feeling winning an All Ireland for Waterford especially the fact I was only 18, Playing in goal that year gave me an opportunity to be on the field for that final whistle in Thurles and that is a moment I'll never forget.

Has the Fitzgibbon cup developed you as a player?
Yes, it is a great opportunity to play with lads from other counties who would normally be rivals. With UL I had the opportunity to play with a lot of the Limerick players who went onto win the Senior All-Ireland last year as well as other top inter county players.

The best game you played in so far?
u21 Munster Final in Walsh Park

What is your favourite venue?
Pairc Eamonn de Paor

What was the best game of hurling you have seen?
2014 All-Ireland Final (drawn game)

Your top three hurlers and footballers in the game at present?
Joe Canning, Tony Kelly, Austin Gleeson; Damien Comer, Sean O'Shea, Brian Fenton.

Your top three hurlers and footballers you saw as a child?
John Mullane, Ken McGrath, Henry Shefflin; Colm Cooper, Sean Cavanagh, Bernard Brogan

The biggest influence on your career?
Billy Clynch and Neil Moore.

How do you find the longevity of the GAA season?
Doesn't bother me now as I am young, but I can imagine if you are older with a young family it would go on for too long.

Have you had any contact from the GPA ?
If so do you find them beneficial ? I've had little contact with the GPA as it is my first year on the senior panel, however the contact I have had with them so far has been very positive.

One sporting event you would like to attend?
The Super Bowl.
