26th Dec 2009 – Over 30 hardy souls turned up for a single vs married hurling match in Ballycomey – either that or it was for the “refreshments” afterwards!. Either way it was a great turn out, and in good 2009, ‘Comer form – the match ended in a draw. The conditions were not great due to the recent frost so a temporary pitch was put together at the rear of the clubhouse. Captain of the singles was a very experienced “single” the ledgendary Joe Coogan. His team talk rallied his men to a strong first half performance to give the single men a 2 goal lead at half time. The married men came back in the second half and their stamina was showing strong but for a late goal for the singles that drew the match. Score of the game went to Joe coogan for his incredible double – a goal and the ball into Paddy Codys car through the front window. Thankfully the window was down at the time. Needless to say Paddy found a better parking spot thereafter.
A few refreshments were had in the dressing room afterwards followed up by tea and breakfast rolls for all present. Well done to chief organiser Peter O’Donovan and to all the players and supporters that turned up.

He came, we saw and he conquered!! What a party. The man himself arrived with presents galore on hand for over 70 children. The party got going at 2.30pm and well done to all involved in what was a great afternoon for all involved. Plenty of food and drink was available for young and old and after the music and games Santa appeared in the horizon. Arriving with flashing lights in a Garda Jeep he was greeted by adoring kids and as usual he didn’t disappoint. He had 4 sack loads of presents andÂ it was time for the main man to get to work. He gave time to each person, knew everyones name, as expected, and was available for lots of photo’s. He went on his merry way back to the North Pole for the last few days build up to Christmas Eve.
Photos from the party are on the Photo Gallery Page.
Merry Christmas and a peaceful new year to you and yours from Erin’s Own, Bord na nOg.
