Germany was on high alert during 2001, as the team from
the Leoni plant in Birr town arrived to compete
in the Leoni Group Challenge Cup .
Kinnitty players in the form of Seamus O' Brien
in goals, and Jim Spain in attack, this formidable
force done themselves proud against Egypt, England and
two German sides, finally bowing out in the Semi Final
Rovers were proud to assist the team in the use of our
facilities at Castle Fields in their preparation for
the match, and to show their gratitude they had the
audacity to beat us on home ground in the practice match!
knows, however, that the Kinnitty forwards did not want
to upset Seamus too much by scoring too many goals past
him, hence the Leoni victory!
