Everyone at Erins Own would like to wish Barry O Neill well for 2018 as manager of our Senior Hurling Team. Barry has confirmed his selectors as Dave McNamara and Sean Dunne. Ger Geary will be the team’s physical trainer for the year.
Barry (coach & selector) & Dave (selector) were previously involved when Erins Own last lifted the Sean Og Murphy Cup in 2007. Barry also lined out at full forward on the club’s greatest day in 1992.
Sean Dunne has returned home recently after living abroad for a number of years, he played in the County Final in 2000 when Erins Own lost out to Newtownshandrum.
Ger Geary is the physical trainer for the year. Ger’s background is in the fitness industry and he has been involved as a coach in the club in recent years. We are delighted to have him on board.
Martin Bowen stepped down as manager at the AGM recently. Martin had Pa Kearney (coach), Dave O Mahoney and Sean Clohessy involved with him in the Senior Hurling Management from 2015-2017. The highlight was in 2016 when Erins Own were narrowly beaten by two points versus Glen Rovers in the County Final. This was our first final since 2007. Erins Own would like to thank the outgoing management team for their hard work over the three years.
