On a sun-baked Sunday afternoon in Greenford, Éire Óg’s bid for Intermediate Championship glory ended at the hands of a well drilled Thomas McCurtains’ outfit.
Despite Éire Óg playing the better football in the first half, a somewhat fortuitous goal by McCurtains coupled with a harsh black card to marksman John Coyle left the game all square at half-time.
Éire Óg 0-4 – Thomas McCurtains’ 1-1.
The second half started evenly & although involved in some good passages of play, Éire Óg struggled to make this count on the scoreboard. Then McCurtains rose into the ascendancy & a couple of consecutive points mid-way through the period saw them develop a four-point lead that wasn’t relinquished.
It finished Éire Óg 0-7 – Thomas McCurtains’ 1-8.
On the day a gallant effort by the Éire Óg men who gave it their all in hot & challenging conditions. Some noteworthy performances by sweeper John Whyte & the ever-consistent Pat Tobin coupled with sharp shooting from placed balls by Gabriel Dennehy.
The management team would like to thank the large volume of support who attended the game.
Next weekend sees another big game for the club with the replay of the Division 3 League Final against St. Clarets. Throw-in @ 2pm in McGovern Park, Ruislip.
Once again a big Éire Óg support for the game would be very welcomed & appreciated.
Well done to Eamonn Pielow who was the winner of our score predictor competition ran in conjunction with The Sheephaven Bay, Camden. A big thanks to Pat & all the team at The Sheephaven Bay for hosting the fundraiser. Pictured below is Pat presenting Eamonn.
