Eoghan Lougheed.. A Player of Many Clubs

A man of many clubs, Avondale United was his real home during the illustrious soccer career of Eoghan Lougheed. He began with Richmond Youth team and then moved to Cork City’s Under 21 side under Stewart Ashton winning a league medal in his debut season.

Eoghan then moved to his third club, Cobh Ramblers and spent three seasons at St. Colman’s Park.

In season 2005/06 season another new club jersey came on the horizon when he ventured over to Avondale United, who were managed at that time by John Caulfield. This move proved successful for Lougheed and Avondale.

In 2007 the Avondale player won his first Intermediate Cup medal but following that triumph, he was again on the move as Tommy Dunne, Cork City manager took him back to Turner’s Cross. His tenure with City was short lived and in 2011 Eoghan was back again at Avondale United in another move. Back with the southside club he annexed another FAI Intermediate Cup medal with a final victory over Cherry Orchard of Dublin.

In season 2013, Eoghan as captain,winning six major honours got to lift them all and in 2019 he set a record of the most appearances in the FAI Intermediate Cup, playing in seven finals and winning six.

Its been a long journey for Eoghan Lougheeds since his first Cup Final in 2007 against Bangor Celtic. The Avondale man is also the holder of Munster Senior Premier League, Beamish Cup, Dónie Forde Cup, Keane Cup, O’Connell Cup and Tom Hand Cup medals.

In further recognition he also holds Irish Universities Representative honours and also played gaelic football with his local GAA club, Ballinora.
