With a week to go to championship Eochaill travelled to Ballynoe on Saturday last to play Charleville in the 5th round of the league. EOCHAILL welcomed back Bill Cooper to the team for his first game of the season with the club.Conditions were very poor for the teams and Eochaill played with the gale in the first half.The team held it's own but too many dropped balls into the keeper's hands and some wides saw Youghal trailing at half time 2-6/0-9.
The team worked hard in the second half to keep the score down and in doing so got a great goal from Chris Mangan after good work from Barry and Bill.Youghal lost four of the starting 15 to injury hopefully none too seriously with championship a week away.Final score,EOCHAILL 1-12,Charleville 2-16.
