CARRICKSHOCK MAN: The appearance of Carrickshock in the Kilkenny county hurling final last Sunday revived memories of the Carrickshock man that once played hurling with Herbertstown. Martin Butler was the man in question and he worked with a farmer in Herbertstown and played the national game with Herbertstown. Martin moved to Croom in 1939 where he won two county senior hurling titles with Croom in 1940 and 1941.
