Ennis GAA club launches ‘Townie TV’ online

AN Ennis GAA club have started their own YouTube channel as well as launching a search for their greatest hurling team of all time. With matches on hold due to Covid-19 Éire Óg Inis have set up Townie TV featuring videos of old matches to be viewed online.
According to a spokesperson for Éire Óg the YouTube channel has been developed “in a bid to provide alternative methods of getting our match fix in during the current restrictions”. Some videos of old games have been provided by Eddie Lough and converted to digital by Gerry and Oran Cahill. “It’s an arduous process and all efforts are greatly appreciated.”
Among the matches featured on the channel are the 1989 junior hurling final against Kilnamona and also the 1990 senior Munster hurling final against Patrickswel.
Members of of the club with recordings of games they would like to share on the channel are asked to contact the committee.
The club have also this week announced plans to name its Hurling Team of the Ages, and are seeking nominations taking in players from 1952 until today.
The spokesperson explained that participants are asked to nominate their team by naming one player in each position from one to 15.
“The goalie who gets most votes will be the goalie on the final team, similarly with number two and so on. In the event of two or more players tying for a position, an adjudicating panel of three will make the final decision. Nominations for midfield, corner and wing positions are inter-changeable, other positions are fixed.”
In the event that a player receives most votes for two different positions he will be selected in the earlier position. Entries can be sent by email to pro.eireogennis.clare@gaa.ie or by mail to Éire Óg, Clonroadmore, Ennis or through the club’s social media pages and entries have to include your name. There is only one entry per person and the closing date is May 29. The winner will be the person whose selection most closely coincides with the final selection.
