Quarter Final - Cremartin, Monaghan, Sun 20th January
Eire Og 0-06 v 0-12 Newry Mitchell's(Down)
An understrength Eire Og team went down to Cremartin to play Newry Mitchell's. On a heavy pitch the Ogs played uphill against a strong wind. Nevertheless we went into an early lead through a Peter Elliott point, but then Mitchell's, with the wind behind them, put the Og's defence under pressure for the rest of the first half as they struggled to clear the ball effectively. Eire Og rallied at the end through Adrian Doherty pointed frees, but Mitchell's went in 9 - 3 ahead at half time.
As luck would have it, the wind died considerably at half time, leaving the Ogs without the advantage Mitchell's had in the first half. Straight from the throw-in Eire Og gained the upper hand and battled back. They closed the gap to three points and had missed a good goal chance, but when Lawrence Kelly went off injured with ten minutes to go, Eire Og had to reshuffle, and, as they chased the equalising points, Mitchell's were able to break upfield and take the points that ensured them victory. It ended 12 - 6 to the Newry men, who had looked sharper on the day. Eire Og were left to ponder what might have been had the game been played back in November.
