It was 3-0 after 27 minutes, thanks to an OG. Brendan Nallen made it 4-0 on 35 minutes. But four minutes later Stephen Moyles pulled one back for Ballina just before the break (4-1). At the start of the second half Iorras brought on Anthony Mills for the injured Eamon Carey with Erris playing against a strong wind then Jason O’Donnell scored his second of the afternoon to make it 5-1 with nice headed effort at the fare post after great work from Tom Ivan and Kyle O’Reilly. Then Brendan Lavelle (half-time sub) made it 5-2 for Ballina. Then on 64 minutes Iorras made their second substitution with Jason Boylan coming on for Gareth O’Malley and young Nathan Reilly then made it 6-2 and his first senior goal and a nice finish it was. Keith Duffy made it 6-3 on 77 minutes for Ballina with Iorras making a change on 80 minutes with Ivan Barrett replacing Kyle O’Reilly. Brendan Lavelle scored his second of the game for Ballina on 83 minutes to make it 6-4. Final score Erris Utd 6 Ballina Town 4. Best of luck in the next round.

Erris United under 12’s first game of season away to Ballinrobe (23rd July) final score Ballinrobe3 Erris United5. Prior to the game there was a minute’s applause for Eric (rest in peace) the team was captained by Molly O’Connor who kept the lads on their toes throughout the game. Erris got off to a flying start with an early goal from James Lavelle and by half time Erris were leading by three goals to one with goals from Martin Mullarkey and a second from James Lavelle.
In the second half substitutions were made and Erris managed to score two more goals from James Lavelle. Ballinrobe scored two goals to make score 3-5 there was a nail biting final few minutes for joint managers Lenny and Andrew. Victory was finally sealed as each and every player played their part in the game, many thanks to all the supporters who traveled up for match. The return journey home was very good spirited with the lads eating an unbelievable amount of sweets and drink (no ice creams on board) many thanks to our driver Derek .Finally James Lavelle is looking to get the match ball.

Erris under 16’s were at home to Ballyheane (25th July) and were determined to put on a show for the large crowd. Managers Kyle, Lisa, Padraic and Eamon had them well prepped as they started the match at a super tempo.
Dylan Walker left scorch marks up the right wing before opening the scoring. Padraic Cowman scored twice, capping a performance where he dominated the left side of the pitch. Shea O’Donoghue put in a shift in the middle and won all his aerial battles.
Luke O’Reilly scored two, including a wonderful second where he charged into the box, fake action pumped, sat the keeper down and ‘Pirlo’ed’ the ball gently over the line.
Robert Barrett scored at the back post and Eamon Fallon scored on his birthday.
Final score us 7 them 0.
This was a remarkably mature performance by the whole squad in difficult circumstances.
Evan Ivers could have scored loads but decided to be provider today, setting up (nearly) all the goals.
Man of the Match was Owen McHale at centre back. He should open up a cleaning business as he tidied up everything at the back.
Thank you to all players, managers and supporters.

The Iorras u14 team got the football underway again away to Ballyglass (20th July) this evening after a very difficult and sad few days.
After a poignant minutes silence with referee Damien McGrath, Iorras tore into the home team with a screamer of a goal from Daithí after 4minutes, one Eric would be well impressed with, coincidentally on the pitch where Eric played his last match only a few weeks ago.
This spurred the lads on and they increased their lead with Daithí and Dylan hitting the net. The midfield of Oliver, Cillian, Daithí and Eoin were creating attack after attack, with Darragh and Dylan tormenting the overworked defence.
The second half continued in the same fashion with Dylan grabbing his second, but then Ballyglass staged a comeback of sorts, and grabbed a couple of goals. Captain John Ginty steadied the defence of Connor, Ciaran and Padraig that allowed Iorras to score again with Daithí securing a wonderful hat-trick and Darragh getting one from outside the box. Keeper Fiachna remained solid in the closing minutes, and super subs Jack Geraghty, Jack Deane and Cian Gallagher all had chances to increase the lead until Daithí slotted home his fourth to leave the final score 7-3 to Iorras, much to the delight of manager Harry and pilot Derek. (Still no ice creams though)
Thank you again for getting the football back in action and doing so in such fantastic fashion, it’s just a small step, but a very important one.
