Erin’s Own win U-16 Jim Buggy Tournament

Erin’s Own closed the Bord na nOg year out with a success in the local tournament by winning comfortably in the Final versus Dicksboro. The semi finals saw Comer win handily against neighbours St Martins and Dicksboro coming through in the end against John Lockes, Callan.  Comer lost Eoin Brennan through injury but that did not deter them in any way as they took command in the final early on and drove home from there. Congratulations to all involved and to the management team of Eamon Brennan, Paul Rice and Dinny Brennan. Michael Holland said a few words on bahalf of the club and thanked the Buggy Family. Tommy Buggy presented the cup to his son Jim, grandson of Jim Buggy for a suitable and satisfactory finish to a very successful underage season.


Big thanks to all of the kitchen staff for the endless work they have put in throughout the year.
