Shamrocks 0-07


The EDEN CLAIMS sponsored Edenderry Minor Football team travelled to Geashill on a wet Sunday evening to play a Shamrocks side that held the upper hand over them after their victory in last year’s Minor County final.


Extremely adverse weather conditions ensured that Shamrocks played with a very strong wind in the first half. For Edenderry the opening period was all about work rate and battling which they did, allowing Shamrocks to score only two points with the wind.

As half time approached Alex Kenny scored a valuable point which meant that Edenderry headed for the dressing rooms in arrears 0-02 to 0-01.


Edenderry started the second half in lightening fashion as Alex Kenny and Jordan Hayes worked a short free on the right hand side with Hayes scything through, selling a beautiful dummy to take two Shamrocks defenders out of the game and finishing with a powerful low shot to the net.

Edenderry then added some well worked team scores with Ciaran Farrell applying the finishing touches.

Shamrocks answered back with a couple of scores of their own but Edenderry’s work rate and attitude didn’t drop and they added further scores from Lee Hyland (goal) and two brilliant points by Alex Kenny.


On an evening where the work rate & application from 1 to 15 was superb it is very hard to single out any individual player.  From Cain Brereton’s control of his backline right through to the tackling and hard work from the forwards.

Everyone involved will be delighted with this result but will also know they have a lot more work to do if they are meet the future challenges.
