Hef­fer­nan plays his part

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

AF­TER a stun­ning sea­son at In­ter­me­di­ate level this year, the Avondale hurlers cap­tured the cham­pi­onship with a com­pre­hen­sive vic­tory over Ark­low Rocks in Joule Park Aughrim.

In the re­port that ap­peared in this news­pa­per the fol­low­ing Wed­nes­day, one of Avondale’s goals from the game was cred­ited to Jack Man­ley.

That goal was, in fact, scored by one of Avondale’s finest: Eu­gene Hef­fer­nan.

Eu­gene came on as a sub­sti­tute in this year’s de­cider where he re­placed Gearóid Mur­phy and he went on to have a very pos­i­tive im­pact on pro­ceed­ings that re­sulted in the ’Dales mak­ing a wel­come re­turn to Se­nior hurl­ing.

Eu­gene also played in the 1992 In­ter­me­di­ate hurl­ing fi­nal for Avondale. We are happy to cor­rect this er­ror.

Eu­gene Hef­fer­nan with his wife Lisa and chil­dren, El­lie-Mai, Danny and three-month-old Iar­laith, af­ter help­ing Avondale to In­ter­me­di­ate hurl­ing suc­cess re­cently.
