"The AOH is our Holy Grail," declared Rockville assistant manager Greg Duggan at this week's Murphy's Stout Team of the Month presentation in the Anglers Sports Lounge.

Bob O'Donovan is team manager and he and Duggan guided the northsiders through the January mud-fields to a unbeaten record of three wins and one draw. That draw was against top side Blarney in the Premier League while the wins were over Park Utd, Killumney, and Blarney Street Athletic, all in the AOH.

The team's fascination with the AOH is due in no small measure to two defeats in recent finals, against North End in 1995 and against Greenmount last season. It irks Duggan and company that there may have been some element of under-performance on each occasion and they want to get another chance to set the record straight.

No under-performance this season though. Just three defeats, one against Greenmount in the league and others, both on penalties, to Pearse in the FAI and to Bosco's, B in the MJC. "We quickly put those defeats behind us, " said Greg, "And now we're concentrating on the league and on the AOH and looking forward to that quarter-final tie against Kinsale".
