Superb Comeback by Celtic against Drums
Castleknock Celtic 3 Drumcondra 2
Many of the older vintage of our readers will fondly remember Drumcondra from Ballybough, when they were a powerful force in the League of Ireland. The visitors today were again in the famous yellow and blue. They got off to a great start, and led 2-0 at half time.
Celtic made an amazing recovery with the wind at their backs in the second half. Prolific scorer Christopher Hoey made it 1-2. Gerard Farrelly brought the teams level. And with the sun, wind and momentum behind them, Hoey was again the man for the big occasion when he shot a beautiful strike to give the Drums keeper no chance. 3-2.
