A Busy Time for the Hurlers

3/25/2013Posted by Darren Hamill

Eire Og's juvenile hurlers have just completed a very busy pre-season. At U8, U10 and U12 level the Ogs have competed in various competitions over the last couple of months. These included the Pat Rice Tournament, North Antrim League, County Down Indoor games, U10 Ulster Provincial tournament, South Antrim Go Games and South West Antrim airbourne indoor games as well as an U12 friendly game against Glenavy. Highlights of the games were of course our U10s getting to the final of the North Antrim League although ultimately they got beat by a strong Slaughtneil, our P3 and P4s coming third in the Pat Rice tournament and also lining out a team in the Provincial games in Magherafelt.

Remarkably, the Ogs have competed against over 40 clubs from 6 counties within Ulster and of course these games will only develop our players. There were also different formats for each of these competitions with the North Antrim league being ground rules, the County Down games, full rules and the SW Antrim airbourne games awarding points for skills.

Thanks to all the organisers for the games these include David and Ciaran (Pat Rice), Owen (North Antrim), Micky (County Down), Tom (SW. Antrim), Kieran (South Antrim) and Kevin (Provincial). Finally of course we could do take part in these games without our coaches John, Gerard, Ciaran, David, Tara, Gavin and Darren. A special word of thanks to the parents for their dedication in getting their kids to many venues throughout Belfast, Co Antrim and beyond. Their fuel bills must have been very high as on several occasions we had to be in two venues on the one day. Also, many thanks to our players who hurled brilliantly, achieving some notable results over some very distinguished hurling clubs, while still playing each game in a very sporting manner.

Matthew "Matt" Morgan: 1928 - 2013

3/11/2013Posted by Admin

The entire club and committee of Éire Óg Doire Achaidh are saddened with the news of the untimely passing over the weekend of our Club President and great friend Matt Morgan. Matt has been a member of the Ógs for over 65 years, winning medals in Hurling and Football over three decades, including being part of the 1948 Antrim Senior Football championship winning team but was still involved in the club until recent times and was a frequent visitor to the Woodlands pitch cheering on the various teams. There are few of our current playing squad or coaches who won’t have had Matt offering a few words of wisdom over the years. A gentleman and a great player.

Beloved husband of Kathleen and much loved father of Philomena, Sean, Colm, Conor, Fintan and the late Matthew. R.I.P. His remains will leave his home on Wednesday (March 13th) at 9.30 a.m. for Mass at 10 O’Clock in St. Agnes’ Church, Belfast

Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire extended Morgan family, he will be sorely missed!
