The 2014 campaign was one of great success for the Green Briar O30’s team. They began the spring season in Division 3 of the ‘Over the Hill’ league. With a new management team of John Hickey and Keith O’Malley and a sprinkling of new talent on the pitch, the team was guided to successive promotions in both the spring and fall seasons. The result of which will see the team plying their trade in Division 1 next season. The fall season was something special to behold, with the team going undefeated from 10 league games and finishing with an overall league record for 2014 of 17W-1L-2D.
Since the club was founded in 2011, in as little as four years the O30’s team has fought its way up from Division 5 to Division 1. With the support of Dessie Kerins and Luke Lumberg from the Green Briar Pub, along with a group of committee members dedicated to success, the club will continue to go from strength to strength. ‘C’mon the Briar!’
