Eire Og GFC Club Notes
July 11, 2016
Eire Og Club notes week beginning 11/7/16
Last Thursday our second side were defeated by KKG in an entertaining league encounter at Downhills. KKG started much stronger and dominated the opening half. However stern words at half time and a motivating whats app message from Brian Digney seemed to do the trick as Eire Og came out of the blocks in the second half and dominated the closing stages. However KKG still held out for a comfortable victory. The final score was KKG 2-19 Eire Og 2-9. Stand out players for Eire Og were Bren Farrell, Shay Oâ Donoghue, Liam âhand passâ Dunne and Tony âBrad Pittâ Rogan.
Both teams are in action this week. On Tuesday our first team play Naomh Padraig in their opening championship fixture at Downhills. On Saturday evening the Galacticos travel to Tottenhal to play the Shamrocks in a mouth-watering North London Derby. All (any) support welcome for both games.
