Erins Own History Book: From an Acorn to an Oak can be purchased in various shops throughout the parish, Fitzpatrick’s shop, Glenmore Stores, Little Island & Glounthaune Post offices & our own Club shop in Caherlag at a cost of €25.

Written by Paddy Twomey & was launched on Thursday the 3rd of July in the Radisson Hotel Little island by our own iconic player Brian Corcoran, The book gives a fly-o...n-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.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the main sponsors of the book for their help & contribution,

Michael O’ Connor Motor Factors

EZ Living Furniture Cork

Fiona Twomey Solicitors

& to Classic Wines for providing us with the wine on the launch night & to everyone who helped Paddy along the way in the writing of the book
