The U16s got their hurling league off to a great start with an emphatic win over St. Brigid’s despite the horrific weather conditions.
The U14s also started their hurling league. Playing against the strong wind in the first half,the lads battled well and went in 2-2 to 1-1 ahead. Our lead increased with goals from Rory O ‘Loughlin and Jack Keogh in the second half and we ran out winning 5-7 to 2-5.
The U13s were also in action with hurleys in hand. They faced Ballinteer St. Johns on Saturday in an away battle. The team effort was immense with us running out 9 point winners. From goalkeeper to our full forward line the display by all was fantastic.
24 U10s headed to Collinstown to play Na Fianna. All the kids played a full part in three matches with no substitutes available. Special mention to Conor Cullen who turned out even though he was nursing a heavily strapped finger which he caught in the car door earlier in the week. The boys put in a very impressive shift against a strong Na Fianna U10 team. The boys are really improving every week. Next stop is to our nearest neighbours Sylvester’s for a hurling match this weekend.
The U9s headed to Marino to take on St. Vincent’s. The cool air temperature did nothing to cool the fire in the bellies of our lads and they played some of the best football we have ever seen them play.
The U8 boys enjoyed another successful weekend of football. In total we had over 40 players home to Naomh Fionnbara and away to Raheny. They acquitted themselves brilliantly with a great show of hand passing and kicking skills. They are coming on in leaps and bounds and as you can see from the photographs, the future of the club is in safe hands with these young lads!
