Eire Og retain Tyrone SHC title

November 06, 2021

Eire Og complete back-to-back SHC titles in Tyrone.

The Benburb Cup is heading back to Carrickmore after Eire Og retained their title at the expense of arch-rivals Eoghan Ruadh, Dungannon with a 0-16 to 0-9 victory.

The sides shared the first eight points inside the opening 24 minutes before the defending champions hit three on the spin to help them towards a 0-7 to 0-5 interval lead.

Eire Og could have been further ahead had they not missed a penalty which was expertly saved by Dungannon goalkeeper John Devlin.

The second-half was a slow burner in miserable conditions at O'Neill's Healy Park as Damien Casey's dead-eye shooting kept Eoghan Ruadh in touch on 0-10 to 0-7 at the second water-break.

However, a fresher Eire Og side remained in the ascendancy and more than doubled their lead by the full-time whistle.
