ÉIRE ÓG completed a championship and Féile double claiming the U15A championship at the expense of neighbours St Joseph’s Doora/Barefield.

Éire Óg 3-10
St Joseph’s Doora/Barefield 1-09
Venue: Cusack Park, Ennis

Danny Lyne’s superb tally of 1-6 allied to a brace of second half goals through Michael Cleary were sufficient for Éire Óg to keep neighbours St Joseph’s Doora/Barefield at arm’s length by 3-10 to 1-9 in the showpiece final.

The almost innate understanding between Luke Vaughan and Danny Lyne impressively combined for the Ennis side’s entire first half total of 1-6, with St Joseph’s goalkeeper Brian Corkery producing a string of top class saves to keep the leaders at bay.

Trailing by only four points by the break (1-6 to 0-5) with the wind to come, the Parish, led by Colm Daly, Shane Dilleen, James Rafferty, Leon Talty and Graham Ball, would see any backlash plans quashed on the restart when Cleary raided for a rebound goal in the 32nd minute,

A shellshocked Doora/Barefield never recovered, taking until the final ten minutes to rally once more, by which time their neighbours were out of sight thanks to a second goal for Cleary at 3-10 to 0-7.

Ball did tee up Daly for a consolation goal nearing the hour mark but by then Éire Óg were already planning ahead for their National Féile Peil na nÓg Division 3 assault in the Connacht GAA Centre in Mayo on Saturday.

Scorers for Éire Óg: Danny Lyne (1-6, 5f); Michael Cleary (2-0); Luke Vaughan, Dylan Tierney (2f) (0-2 each)

Scorers for St Joseph’s Doora/Barefield: Colm Daly (1-3, 2f, 1’45); Graham Ball (0-3); TJ Moore, Leon Talty, Conor Price (0-1 each)
