Throwback Thursday

This year marks the 15 year anniversary of our Intermediate Hurling Championship win in 2004. In the final we came up against Dromina who had beaten us in the 2000 and 2003 Junior Championship. The final was played at Pairc ui Chaoimh on 24th October and we ran out winners on a scoreline of 2-13 to Dromina’s 2-8. The team was quoted in the Irish Examiner the following day as producing an excellent team performance, reflected in the chasing and harassing of our opponents all over the park, it was also noted the power packed display won the game far more convincingly than the scoreline suggested. John O Keeffe was outstanding at full back, team captain Paddy O Regan turned in a flawless display in midfield, Paudie Cahill was superb at centre forward and our full back that day Brendan Kearney did a marvellous marking job on Dromina’s dangerman Martin Finn. Our scores on this famous day came from Jason Foley 1-1, Paddy O Regan & Johnny Halbert 0-3 each, Eoin O Reilly 1-0, Paudie Cahill & Willie O Leary 0-2 each, Kieran Coakley 0-1, Richie Cahill 0-1. The team that year was managed by John O Regan, Jerome Buttimer and Frankie Halbert. That Sunday night the team and management were greeted back in the village by our supporters and a great nights celebration ensued. The following day was a bank holiday so it was Tuesday when the team visited the schools with the Paddy Walsh Memorial Cup and the children that day enjoyed a half day to celebrate in the great occasion.
