More than 64 members of the boys soccer team from the John Boyle O'Reilly Celtic Soccer Club and girls team from the East Longmeadow Soccer Association, their coaches and parents recently returned from an eight-day tour to Ireland where they participated in the Emerald Cup International Friendship Cup Soccer Tournament at the University of Limerick in County Limerick, Ireland. The East Longmeadow girls went undefeated, and won the tournament with a 3-0 win over the Bruff AFC, of Bruff, Limerick, Ireland.
The girls team was coached by John Ford, Paul Kennedy and Steve Heath and included Ali Buendo, Kaitlyn Buckley, Kristen Casey, Kelsi Ford, Michaela Hyland, Lauren Kennedy, Octavia Kenney, Emilie Maggipinto, Alaina Martin, Casey Nicoll, Liann Simonds, Julia Weithofer and Amanda Thibodeau of East Longmeadow and Lauren Quinn of Wilbraham. The JBO Celtic boys coached by Mike Carney and Mark Smith were a step off of the pace in their under 14 tournament. Smith, of Belfast, Ireland, commented that "even though the boys didn't win, they learned a lot about the speed of play necessary to play and compete successfully in Ireland and Europe!" The JBO Celtic Soccer Club has been to this tournament for 13 years, often coming close to winning but never getting quite over the hump!
