Longford Town 4-3 Athlone Town

Goals galore in the t2015 pre season El Clasico as Longford Town ran out winners on a 4-3 scoreline at City Calling Stadium.

Prematch confusion kicked in as with the game scheduled for a 7.45pm kick off, Longfords posters were not updated for the new time and the fixture was advertised with as a 7.30pm start. To add to it all, kick off was then pushed back to 8pm due to a kit clash.

Goals from Don Cowan (2), Tom Morris and Davy O’Sullivan won the game for Longford while Garbhan Coughlan grabbed a brace and Gareth Brady netted the third for Athlone.

Westmeath Byrne The Dubs

Tuesday 11th January 2011. O’Byrne Cup. Lakeland Park, Mullingar.
Westmeath 0-12 … 1-08 Dublin

Westmeath booked an O’Byrne Cup Quarter Final showdown with DIT as they beat Dublin by the narrowest of margins at Lakepoint Park.

With the original game postponed just 30 minutes before throw-in due to a frozen pitch, aggrieved Dublin fans made the 2nd trek to the Midlands in 3 days but, as with the 1st trip, left in disappointment.

Despite Dublin scoring an early goal, Westmeath kicked themselves into a 6 points lead at the break as they heavy downpour of rain soaked players and supporters alike. Dublins revival started as the 2nd half began and in the final minute they deservedly drew level.

Extra time loomed until, in the final moments of injury time, Westmeath were awarded a close range free kick and Paul Greville made no mistake to send the ball over the bar and send Westmeath through to the next round.

Ireland Account For Algeria

Friday 28th May 2010 – International Friendly
Republic of Ireland 3-0 Algeria

A brace from Robbie Keane, added to a goal, on his first start, from Paul Green ensured Ireland made it 2 from 2 against South Africa bound teams this week.

Ireland dominated a game in which Algeria never really looked like scoring. A brave diving header from Paul Green, taking a boot in the head for his troubles, gave Ireland a 1st half lead. Robbie Keane got Irelands second, lobbing the ball in after a weak clearance before netting his 2nd from the penalty spot.

Greg Cunningham also made his debut and gave a good account of himself.
