Senior Hurling Championship Sunday 22nd Erins Own 1-17  Midleton 1-14:

Great win tonight for our senior hurlers over the county champions Midleton, conditions were perfect in pairc ui chaoimh for the 1st Round in the SHC, Midleton started off well with plenty of scores, at first we were finding it hard to stay with them but we soon settled in, Eoghan Murphy put over 5 from frees Kilian Murphy added 2 from play & Kieran Murphy & Mark Collins 1 each from play, saw us trailing at half time by 4 points 0-09 to 1-10, the 2nd half saw us taking control of the game keeping Midleton to only 4 points for the hole half, Eoghan Murphy hit another 3 frees & 2 from play, Cian O Callaghan got 2 & Colm Coakley got 1, the icing on the cake came when Mossie Carroll hit the net in the 50th minute, the last few minutes was nail biting stuff we had a 3 point lead & Midleton were lobbing them in, but we kept them out, from 1 to 15 Erins Own were outstanding the line got there tactics spot on for night, to pick a man of the match from Erins Own would be hard, Eoghan Murphy hitting 10 points, Shane Murphy & Peter Kelly were solid in defence, but it would have to go to Kilian Murphy few could match his strength & pace, Well done to all.

Erins Own Book Launch: All welcome

                                                                   Erins Own
                                                    From an acorn to an oak.
Will be launched on Thursday 3rd July next at 7.30 at the Radisson Hotel in Little Island, by our own Brian Corcoran.
This publication written by Paddy Twomey, comprises of seventeen chapters and three Appendices, totalling over 500 pages and approximately 200 photographs.
It is a very comprehensive account, particularly of the period 1988-2013, of the history of the club.
It describes our journey from very humble beginnings to where we find ourselves today.
Chapter 17 contains over 50 pages and is dedicated to the Ladies Football and Camogie club.
It is a unique production as far as club histories go because Paddy has been deeply involved in all facets of the club,both  adult and juvenile, as a selector and administrator for over 40 years now.
He gives a fly-on-the wall account, particularly of our major successes, our near misses, our agonies and ecstasies. Battles won and battles lost both on and off the field.
Chapter 16 is entitled  A Home of our Own. And Paddy traces the history of  the acquisition of the pitch, the development of our complex, and adjoining land in detail.
It should be of great interest to everybody (male and female) associated with our club, whether now or at any time within the past fifty years.
Hopefully this book will form an important reference for present and future generations to enjoy
