Currin V Eire Og on Wednesday 15th June. Result Currin 1 – 8 Eire Og 2 – 7 A game that most of the players would like to forget. Considering Currin were near the top of the league and Eire Og were at the bottom everyone expected a different result, especially following the game against Rockcorry the previous week. Stephen Smyth opened the score with a point after seven minutes, followed quickly by two from Eire Og. Dick Clerkin followed this with a point to equal the score.Gerard O’Callaghan and Jack McCarron both scored before half time as did the opposition who also scored a goal just on the whistle. Half time score Currin 4 points, Erie Og 1 goal and 4 points. The second half was much the same, Jack McCarron scored three points , Niall McEntee adding another and Stephen Smyth scoring a goal. This was not enough as Eire Og added 3 points and a goal in the second half. Final score Currin 1 – 8 Eire Og 2 – 7 Team: Garreth Beattie, Stephen Beattie, Ben Clerkin, Dick Clerkin, Fergal Connolly, Cieran Kierans, Cieran McCaffrey, Conor McCaffrey, Jack McCarron, Patrick McDermott, Francis O’Callaghan, Philip O’Callaghan, Gerald O’Callaghan, Declan Smyth, Stephen Smyth, Sub: Niall McEntee.

Is the Catholic Church in Ireland alone in introducing this new Missal? The Catholic Church in Ireland, along with Churches throughout the English-speaking world, is working towards introducing the new edition of the Roman Missal at this time. This new edition is the English translation of the Latin Missal that was issued by Pope John Paul ll in 2002. Since 2002 the Church in its many languages has engaged in the work of translating this Latin text through study, reflection and consultation. This work in English-speaking countries is now complete. In Ireland, as in other English speaking countries, the new Missal will come into use during the autumn 2011.
