Vice-Chairman, Colm Ross attended the controversial Leinster Final between his native Louth and Meath on July 10, 2010. One of Meath’s famous sons is none other than our own Gareth O’Hara, a noted practitioner of the dark arts. The earliest recorded inter-county football match took place in 1712 when Louth faced Meath at Slane. That too ended in controversial circumstances.
The Leinster Final was played at the main stadium in Dublin, Croke Park (capacity 82,500) and is one of the most important games of the year being part of the All Ireland Championship.
Whilst Colm was surprised by the referee’s decision in the last minute of the game, he was also surprised to find this photo in the match programme. The photo is of VAS Reds, the winners of the Viet Celts Cup U14 played in March 20o9 at UNIS, Hanoi.
The Leinster Council is twinned with the Asian County Board to offer support and help with logistics which is why our boys ended up in the programme of the Leinster Final.
