Single vs Married match

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.
