November 8, 2018

Story of the game:

Half-time: 1-5 to 1-6, Clonmore recover from a six point deficit to close the gap to one before HT – all first half scores coming from Dylan Doyle.

42mins: 1-11 to 1-6, 6 unanswered points from Dylan (2,1f), Billy, Sean Moran, Rory and Oisin,

55mins: 1-14 to 1-8, three more points by Billy and Dylan (2,1f),

57mins: 1-14 to 2-10, Eire Og hit back with 1-2 to narrow margin to one point, the goal a penalty and Clonmore are reduced to 14 men. It's nail biting stuff as Clonmore have to defend with all their might and one timely interception by Ciaran Mooney saves a certain goal.
