Éire Óg vs St. Comgalls

A depleted Eire Og side with only 17 players in attendance struggled to put a rugged Antrim town Side away on an overcast afternoon at Woodlands.

  Indeed it was the Visitors who started the brighter with the Comgalls reeling off two early points before Gerard Nugent settled the home sides nerves with a couple of close range frees. The game was nip and tuck thereafter with poor handling from the Ogs forwards allowing the South West men to punish them at the other end. Disaster struck midway through the first half when stand in keeper Kayvan Vesali who with a rush of blood to the head got caught in possession and the Antrim centre forward duly obliged shooting into the empty net from 30 yards. This put the visitors 5 in front however in what has been a trademark of the season so far the Ogs did not let the heads drop and subsequently reeled off the next 7 points. Thomas Maguire and Stephen Erskine particularly prominent in this period with Maguire helping himself to 2 points.

Half time Eire Og 0-10 St.Comgalls 1-5

 On the restart, the Óg's again let their standards slip as Comgalls regained a foothold. The sides were quickly level at 12 apiece ten minutes into the second period and were dealt another blow with Aidan Mc Garrity having to leave the game due to injury with Ciaran Rice (another injury doubt) replacing him. This caused a reshuffle which happened to work in their favour as Thomas Maguire dropped back to Centre half back adding solidity  while Conor Mc Kenna shifted to right half back. The reshuffle gave the Ógs a greater attacking emphasis from deep as Mc Kenna and S.Erskine pinned there men back, which alleviated the pressure from the full back line of Ellis (who was fighting gamely to keep their star man quiet), J.George and Mc Lean. The Ógs midfield of Brian Maguire and Stevie "Bomber" Mc Caffrey were now dominant and were supplying the Ogs forwards with quick ball. Caomhan Daykin and Conor Mc Kenna both slotted several long distance points as the Ogs began to pull away. Indeed Mc Kenna was now running riot and quickly added another with the fist; the pressure had became too much for the Antrim men as their corner back who was being tortured by Harrison and Rice was given his marching orders. The Ógs were now firmly in control and there was time left for supersub G "the goal" Mc Allister to get in on the act with a now trademark fisted goal after being assisted by the Erskine brothers.

First Camogie Blitz for Eire Og

12/10/2013Posted by Ciaran Grant

Eire Og played in their first camogie blitz today after being invited to the Ulster Camogie U10 games at the Eddie Irivine Centre in Bangor. They played matches against Rossa, Bredagh, Portaferry and Ballygalget. Although they did not record a victory, it is good to see the Oggettes compete very well against such illustrious company, and the girls scored a few goals along the way. Everyone went home with smiles on their faces and hopefully this is the first of many blitzes for the girls. 

Eire Og are looking to grow their newly formed camogie team. If there are any girls who would like to try camogie or come join the team just come along to training any Thursday evening. You can get more information from Tara on 07526163323
