Co Down Games

16/02/2014Posted by Darren Hamill

P6 County Down Games
Venue: Eddie Irvine Centre
Date: 16th February 2014

Our P6 hurlers continued their excellent form with another 4 wins at the County Down seaside venue. Our opponents today were Belfast sides Davitts, Saint John's and O'Donnell's with Portaferry B making up the quintet.

This was a very young team today with included a P3 Liam who hurled brilliantly with his forward partner Niamh in all our games. Niall, Pearse and Shane rotated the defensive and midfield positions and they all got plenty of goals. A special mention for Oran who volunteered for goals in all the games and produced some great stops

This was the final games in a very busy weekend for the Brid Og hurlers which also included Pat Rice memorial games at P2/3, U10 North Antrim League, and the U12 Ulster Provincial games at Magherafelt. Players Niall D and Pearse amassed a total of 15 hurling games over the week-end. I am sure they will sleep well tonight.

N Antrim League

U10 North Antrim League Division 1

Venue Saint Patrick's College Ballymena

Date: 15th February 2014

Our U10 hurlers qualified to play in Division 1 of the North Antrim League and our opponents on the day were Belfast side Saint Paul's, hosts All Saints Ballymena and North Antrim sides Cushendall, Cushendun, McQuillans Ballycastle and Oisins Glenariffe.

Our first game was against the host team and All Saints got an early lead which they extended mid way through the games. The Ogs tried their best to force our opponents back and when we scored through Niall we had several chances to get the equaliser but found the All Saints keeper in great form.

Our next match was against Cushendun and the Og's came out of the traps flying and got an early 2 goal lead. Cushendun had their chances as well and got a late consolation goal of their own.

The Ogs did not have long to wait for their third game which was against Ballycastle. Unfortunately McQuillans got an early score and while we were trying to change our formation they scored a second goal. Just at the death of the game when most of our players were in an advanced positions they scored their third and final goal.

Ruairi Og's were our next opponents and we raced to a 2 goal lead but credit to Cushendall as they came back to snatch a 2-2 draw even though Pearse keeps telling me it was 3-2 to us.

Our fifth game was against Belfast side Saint Paul's. These games are always tight affairs and today was no exception. The Shaw's Road side took an early lead but again our "never say die" attitude meant that we got an equaliser and could have won the game although this would have been harsh on Saint Paul's who had their chances. At least it will be honours even with the class room rivalry in OLQoP school

After a 6 game wait were the players practised their poc fada skills we played our sixth and final game against Oisin's. We had played them several times in North Antrim blitzes and knew how skilful a team they were and unfortunately their skills came to the fore in a 3-0 victory.

Thanks
Unfortunately unlike the previous two years there will not be a Brid Og team on Final's day but it must be mentioned that we were the only club to have teams in the first Division at both U12 and U10 level. In fact it must also be mentioned the progress shown in this particular age group as in 1 year they have moved from Division 5 Finalists to competing brilliantly in Division 1 today. Also most of the today's players will be able to play again at this level next year. Regarding the players they showed a great hurling maturity today and showed no fear in playing teams with the highest pedigree of hurling within the County. All the players positions were rotated today and all 8 of them put in a shift for the club.
Finally I would like to thank Owen and Ali for organising this great tournament and wish Paddy and Declan all the best in the final. It should be a cracker.

Pat Rice Camogie Blitz

08/02/2014Posted by Tara Baird

Eire Og hosted their very first camogie blitz at the Falls Leisure Centre yesterday.  Thanks to David Mc Gowan for organising the venue and the staff at the Falls Leisure Centre and to Lisa Mc Aliskey (Ulster Camogie secretary) for her support and referreeing on the day.
In all 6 teams fielded, unfortunately St Pauls Hollywood and Pearses were unable to attend.  GortNaMona, Rossa, Bredagh, St Pauls Belfast and Lamh Dhearg all enjoyed the day. 

Eire Og camogs did themselves proud. We lined out against all 5 teams with a strong team with Carla, Sophia, Niamh and Katie forming the base of the team. Anna, Alannah, Aoife, Emma and Aoife Duffy took turns in different positions.  All the girls played amazingly and Carla clocked up 7 goals as did Niamh.  Niamh was a great sportsperson and played for Bredagh in the final match and scored a great goal.  Sophia showed off her fantastic striking ability scoring 3 goals from a distance and Aoife Rice dazed the Rossa girls scoring a beautiful goal.  Special mention for Katie who also scored and made some fantastic saves. Katie has only started playing in the last couple of weeks and this was her debut.

Anna showed off her spirit in defence as did Alannah. Aoife and Emma proved their worth as camogs also in the front line tackling girls twice their size.

All round it was a fantastic day. Thanks to all our supporters including the hurling coaches who turned up to support us.

The score sheet looked like this:
Lambh Dhearg 0 Eire Og 3
St Pauls 1 Eire Og 2
Bredagh 3 Eire Og 6
Gort Na Mona 0 Eire Og 4
Rossa 4 Eire Og 3
