Eddie’s managerial career gets off to a dream start
KILKENNY legend Eddie Brennan had a dream start to his managerial career as his Laois side got the better of neighbours Offaly in the Walsh Cup.
Eddie is going to be seeing quite a lot of the same foe in 2018 – in both the Joe McDonagh Cup and Division 1B of the league.
Offaly led by three points at the break, their goal coming from Sean Dolan in the 28th minute.
A well-taken goal from Stephen Maher brought Laois back into contention early in the second half while sub Eanna Lyons also impressed with a couple of fine points from play.
Points from Aidan Treacy, Dolan and a long-range free from Eoghan Cahill, however, had Offaly three up entering the final quarter. But Bergin tied things with a goal and Laois got over the line thanks to points from Stephen Maher, PJ Scully and Ryan Mullaney.
Eddie, of course, has also been performing some heroics of his own on the pitch of late.
Last week the 40-year-old again rolled back the years as he scored 1-1 as he led his club Graigue-Ballycallan to victory in the Leinster intermediate championship against Portlaoise.
