Katie Power (camogie)
|Irish name||Cáit de Paor|
|Position||Centre half forward|
|Born||1991 (age 25–26)
Katie Power (born 1991) is a camogie player and Business student at WIT. Daughter of former Piltown hurler Jim, and former Piltown camogie player Martina (née Brennan), and sister to Martin and Jamie, she excelled as a camogie player from a very young age. First tutored by her father and subsequently by Maura Brennan and later by Jim Malone, she honed her skills with constant practice and a fierce determination to win.
Along with fellow Piltown players Leanne Long, Elaine kenny, Charlene Norris and Carol McCarthy she earned her first Leinster medal with Kilkenny at U14 in 2003. It was to be the first of many.
Katie also excelled at athletics, soccer, basketball and Gaelic football as a child but her love for hurling persuaded her to focus on camogie in recent years.
Katie made her debut on the Kilkenny Senior team in 2006 and currently fills the position of centre forward. She gives credit to her trainers, both at club and County level, for her success. However, in life we mostly create our own luck, and Katie's success is mainly due to her own hard work and dedication to her chosen sport.
