Tallaght Stadium hosts UEFA Final


On Saturday July 4th Tallaght Stadium played host to the UEFA Regions’ Cup Final where Ireland’s Eastern Region side won the amateur competition for the first time. A powerful David Lacey header was enough to ensure that the Eastern Region side were crowned the 2015 Regions’ Cup Champions following a hard fought 1-0 victory over Croatian side Zagereb Region. Both sides had come through the group stages with an impressive three wins from three and the final was a nail biting affair with all 1,172 supporters on the edge of their seats for much of the game. The team, managed by Gerry Smith, were deserved winners in the end and went one step further than the Munster/Leinster side that devastatingly lost in the final of the same competition in 2011.
