Born in Callan, County Kilkenny, Power first excelled at hurling in his youth. He arrived on the inter-county scene at the age of twenty-six when he first linked up with the Kilkenny senior team.[1] He made his senior debut during the 1926 championship. Power immediately became a regular member of the starting fifteen, and won two All-Ireland medals, four Leinster medals and one National Hurling League medal.[2][3]

As a member of the Leinster inter-provincial team on a umber of occasions, Power won one Railway Cup medal. At club level he played with Army Metro in Dublin.
