Éire Óg’s Dedication Got Them Into Hurling Quarter-Finals – Cooney

An Éire Óg hurling selector has paid tribute to the team’s character as they booked a senior hurling quarter-final place.

First half goals from Danny Russell and Darren O’Brien allowed the Ennis side a narrow interval lead before emerging 2-13 to 1-14 victors over Newmarket-on-Fergus in Cusack Park.

Shane O’Donnell struck a vital late point to get them over the line.


Ronan Cooney says O’Donnell’s dedication typified the effort from the whole squad.
