The Teams were divide into 4 categories: 1966-1979, 1980-1989, 1990-1999, 2000-2016.

The teams were chosen by three individuals who either managed or played with those players within that time frame.As we have had so many players coming through our gates over the years it would be impossible to choose a team which people universally agree with, and with this in mind this was done in the context of a bit of fun and craic.

Seamus Agnew has beaten the Kube

Last night at the Crowne Plaza Dundalk our production of the Kube took place in front of a huge crowd.All 40 contestants went in to the Kube one by one to see if they could defeat it.After 8 rounds and two Semi Finals we were whittled down to the final four contestants.

  • Ciaran Dunne
  • Kelvin Kelly
  • Eana McArdle
  • Seamus Agnew

There was a flurry of activity at the Tote where all the smart money was on Eana McArdle to be victorious. But in a nail-biting final game both Ciaran Dunne and Kelvin Kelly were eliminated leaving Eana McArdle and Seamus Agnew to battle it out.But the outsider wasn’t to be denied  and he eventually won the competition defeating Eana McArdle by a slim margin of only 6 seconds.Seamus was kindly sponsored by TSM Control Systems.

We would again like to take this opportunity to thank all of the local business’s who sponsored contestants , sponsored heats and advertised in our programme,without these people the event would not be as successful as it was.
