Croom Teacher from Colaiste Chiarain Receives Man Of The Match for Ireland .

Ireland defeated Scotland in the AIB Club International in a very entertaining match played at Donnybrook last Friday Night ,John Ed O Connor who is teaching in Colaiste Chiarain was voted Man of the Match and he had  a tremendous game, Quote of the night as regards John Ed’s play was “He is one hell of a tough Nut “ in a complimentary fashion from a commentator..Let’s hope it will be the first of many more caps to come for John Ed. Ireland were not fancied to do well against a Scotland team  who have already two games played and one was a trouncing of Wales, they also had fringe/Academy players playing who were verging on the Scotland Senior Squad .Ireland draw from players in the Aib League.

In the opening half Ireland conceded several penalties but still led by 11 -8 at the interval. Strangely Scotland were the one’s in the second half who conceded the penalties,. Brendan Keeshan (Dolphin) scored 15 points from the boot on the night; it was a tense last 5 minutes though as Scotland applied the pressure and went over for a try, which left one score in it .A stray pass in the dying minutes denied the Scots a draw or a possible win. A fantastic win for Ireland as John Ed said later it would great if we could get the other nations involved as like a 6 Nations.
