WATCH: Denis The Hero As Newtown Win The First Penalty Shootout In Wicklow GAA History

Newtown 1-15 Eire Og 0-18 After Extra time. Newtown Win 3-0 On Penos

Denis Kelleher who normally mans the posts for the Newtown Junior B team was the Newtown Senior Team hero as he saved all three Eire Og Penalties in what we believe to be the first official Wicklow GAA game to be ever decided on penalties as Newtown progressed to the West Wicklow Cup Final with Dunlavin who had a 1 point win after extra time against League Champs Avondale in the other semi final!

A game that was tied at Half Time, Full Time, Ht of Extra Time and after Extra Time took penalties to decide it. To add to the drama Matt Maguire went into goals for Eire Og after regular keeper Billy Norman got a black card when Newtown tied scores up at the death. The drama was by no means over though!!!

See how it unfolded here:

Dean Odlum fires Newtown 1-0 Up

Eire Og’s Danny Woods is denied by Kelleher! Newtown 1-0 

Conor Odlum just about stirs the Eire Og Porridge as Matt Maguire gets a hand to it but not enough! Newtown 2-0

Shaun Cranley was in unbelievable form but Denis Kelleher guessed right to make his second save! Newtown 2-0

The Divisions leading scorer Ross Davis with peach puts the Bens 3 up! Newtown 3-0

Newtown Hero Denis Kelleher saves David Rooney’s effort to make it 3 out of 3 saves and send the Magpies to the final! Newtown 3-0


You thought you’d seen it all well now hear it all in this full clip…!!!!! This commentary makes Effin Eddie sound like a complete pretender!! #Epic
