The first half ended 1-1 with Kyle O’Reilly leveling for Erris before the whistle. When play resumed Ryan Ruddy put Iorras in front with the first of three goals but Westport (B) made it 2-2 at full time.

Oisín (centre) with Kyle & Eamon look very happy after their afternoons work.
Oisín Murphy was at his spectacular best mid-field for Erris United away to Castlebar Celtic in the semi-final of the Westaro Cup on Sunday 14th with 4-3 final score.
Two goal in the opening half from Eamon Carey and Ivan Barrett which had the sides going in at the break with Iorras 2-1 and two more great efforts from Kyle O’Reilly in the second half, Castlebar Celtic scored two in the final ten minutes but it wasn’t enough to stop Iorras from reaching the final.
Erris Keeper Shane Nallan pulled off two great saves each side of the half but it was Oisín Murphy who took all the plaudits with his display and bearing in mind he had completed a 360KM cycle from Dublin to Belmullet over two days previous in the great escape cycle fundraiser for the Capuchin day center in Dublin, he’s a mighty buck. Manager Martin McIntyre was very happy with over all team performance.
Iorras will face Manulla in the final on the weekend of the 22nd/23rd August in Milebush Park Caslebar
