Erin’s Own; 1-14
O’Loughlins deservedly won this final after a very entertaining match played in a well appointed Jenkinstowm Pitch. O’Loughlins got off to a whirlwind start and were 3-1 to 0-0 up after only 8 minutes following a series of unfortunate errors by a nervous Erin’s Own defense. From that point to the end, the match went back and forth and the Comer lads played excellently, only to always rue the starting few minutes. By mid second half the lead was down to 5 points with the the O’Loughlins goal under siege. Despite all the effort, our lads came up short in the end and can only be commended right across the board for their willingness to fight to the very end – a genuine virtue for anyone to have. There will be brighter days ahead for this group of players.
The U14 league final between Erin’s Own and O’Loughlins will take place this Thursday 21 st August at 7pm in Jenkinstown. On behalf of the Bord na nOg, we wish the team the best of luck on the night and ask all available members to go along and support the lads in their quest for glory.

James was a member of Erins Own for over seventy years and contributed a vast amount to the club and was Vice President for many years. He will be fondly remembered by his many firendss an neighbours.
