Eire Og

1960

In 1960 the Ógs' won their first Minor Football Championship when they beat Glenravel 1-06 to 1-03. This, however, was not without controversy. Éire Óg were thrown out of the Championship on a technicality, but they appealed the decision to the Ulster Council and won. The following year, 1961, Éire Óg won the Junior Football Supplementary League.

In 1963 Éire Óg beat O’Donovan Rossa in the South Antrim Hurling Championship before going on to lose to St John’s 4-4 to 2-3 in the final. In 1966 Éire Óg again reached the South Antrim Junior Hurling Championship final having disposed of O’Connell’s and St John’s . Unfortunately, despite having been installed as favourites, Éire Óg fell to Dwyer’s in the final.
