Here's how long suffering keeper Pat Treacy saw it...

" Well another tale of woe. Took the lead after 15 mins when Tommy whipped in a free kick from 40 yards to the right and Joe reacted quickest to get a fine header on it from about 8yds out..keeper no chance. They pressed hard from then on hitting the crossbar later and we were happy to see out the half 1-0.
Second half saw us under the kosh for long spells but it looked like we were gonna hold out til the 75th min when a Clodiagh defender needlessly clattered into one of their strikers on a mazy run near the corner of the box.
We had 5 in the wall but somehow yer man got it over or through it and to make things worse one of their lads walked into my line of vision just as he struck it so I couldn't adjust myself quickly enough to keep it out. Within a few minutes they were 2-1 up when they broke down the right and a low cross was met at the far post by not one but two of their players unmarked and an easy finish for them from 4 yards. On the balance of play they deserved to win but really a few minutes of craziness cost us badly in the end."
