Score4Eddie: In 1993 Nenagh Éire Óg and Aherlow faced off in the county under-21 football final in what has probably become one of the most famous county finals ever played, not because of the quality of football on show, but due to the expert commentary of “Effin” Eddie Moroney. Last week members of both teams reunited for the brilliant Score4Eddie cause, a fundraising campaign established by the friends and family of the late Eddie Connolly from Loughmore-Castleiney. Eddie Connolly was a fantastic sportsman who represented his club and county with distinction in both hurling and football. The club is encouraging all our friends, members, supporters and players to text MATCH to 50300 and donate four euro to this fabulous cause.
