    Completes move to Barnsley on the back of another good season with Plymouth; could be a replacement for Stephen Dawson.

    Good to see him make progress as being stuck at Plymouth for another couple of years could have turned into a permanent position in the lower tier. Barnsley will expect to be promoted straight back up so a good atmosphere for him to impress in.

    Nice to see a continued upward trajectory for young Conor. He was only a kid when he was captaining a strong League Two side. He has a bit of physical presence about him and decent passing abilities. Could be one to watch over the next couple years.

    Another goal, this time the opener against Gillingham. He's taking to this League One lark well.

    Conor has now scored in 3 consecutive league games. That's 7 goals in his last 11 league games.

    His goal against Yeovil. Similar to the strike against Gillingham in that he requires little back lift to generate a lot of power. It's a pretty incredible skill to have.

    I can't remember ever seeing him play. He clearly has a cracking strike of the ball. Can he play a bit too? He's gaining plenty attention with these goals and has been nominated for League One player of the month for August: http://www1.skysports.com/football/n...k-up-for-award

    Just been looking at some Barnsley forums, some rather understated praise for him there,
    they seem a hard bunch to please!!!


    Listen to this miserable git!!!

    Far too soon to be praising him. Far too soon. But good effort Jay. For you.
    Maybe he was joking though. (seems he was).

    This is more like it

    From what I've seen of him so far he's easily got the quality to play higher.

    but even that seems rather understated, I am thinking more along the "call him up Trap" lines.


    This is more like it!!

    Midfielder nominated for first Player of the Month award of the season.

    Barnsley’s new midfield sensation Conor Hourihane has been nominated for the first Skybet League One player of the month award.
    The 23 year old Irishman arrived at Oakwell from Plymouth this summer and has been a revelation as The Reds have lost just one of their five league games so far this season, scoring three goals.

    Hourihane is nominated along with Preston’s Chris Humphrey, Coventry’s Reda Johnson and Bradford’s James Hanson.
    Anyhow, what I am thinking is you watch him whacking in those long range goals and then
    you remember Darren Gibsons wayward effort, hmm....?

    Plus he has the name, "Hurricane Hourihane"

    It's a good sign of quality IMO, Barnsley paid £200,000 for him, seems like good business to me.

    I think he has a big future, looks real talent, League One player of the month
    puts him at Championship level at least at just 23.

    Hope it is not a flash in the pan though.

    "“I do seem to be on a run where everything I hit does seem to be going in, but maybe I should be looking for a few six-yard tap-ins now!”

    Having trouble quote the text, but he is either very good or very lucky!

    Anyhow 90 minutes of good football would probably get you in the Ireland squad at the moment

    http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/12040/9456850/sky-bet-league-one-conor-hourihane-off-to-perfect-start-at-barnsley

    Pressed on whether he will soon be knocking on Martin O’Neill’s door, he said: “That would be nice, but one month of football I don’t think is going to get me there. I think I just have to work hard and then you never know.”

    Conor has now scored in four consecutive league games after his double today. Barnsley lost 3-5 at home to MK Dons having being 0-5 down after 82 minutes. Samir Carruthers netted one for The Dons.

    He's going to be great for us. A cross between Ger Crossley and John Jim O'toole.
