Erin’s Own 1-6 Naas 0-7

ERIN’S OWN were the victors after extra-time in this compelling John West Féile na nGael Division 1 Shield final on Sunday afternoon.

This was a gripping affair between the Cork side and Naas right throughout with very little between the teams.

The opening stages were keenly contested. Finn O’Brien slotted over an early point for Erin’s Own, but Naas replied with a point through Charlie Carroll it remained a point apiece at half-time.

Naas tacked on early scores in through Samuel Ryan and Ryan Sinkey to lead 0-5 to 0-1.

But Erin’s Own refused to throw in the towel as O’Brien pointed and Shane Irwin found the back of the net with a well-executed strike to take the game into extra-time.
