Our senior hurlers put in another fine league performance when travelling to Oliver Plunketts and winning by 5 points on Saturday. The juniors continued the trend on Sunday afternoon with a comprehensive win over Crokes. It’s championship time for our hurlers next weekend. The seniors play Lucan on Saturday evening while the juniors are away to Realt Dearg on Sunday afternoon.
Our Senior 6 camogie team made it 2 league victories on the trot with a win over Faughs. This was a fine performance by a very young team. We had camogie victories also for our under 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 teams. Our senior camogie girls are in action on Tuesday night with a vital away game to Oliver Plunketts.
The under 16 hurlers defeated Castleknock with a most impressive performance. Next Saturday the under 16 footballers play their eagerly awaited championship quarter final away to Ballyboden at 4pm.
In Ladies football, our seniors got their league campaign off to a fine start with a narrow victory over Ballyboden in a great contest. Having been outplayed in the first half by good opponents, the girls turned on the power in the second half and finished deserving winners.The under 15s continued their winning ways also.
So, another good week on the playing fields. Well done to all.
We send our best wishes to Stan Kinnane who suffered a shoulder injury while playing for the minor footballers at the weekend and to Lauren Waters who got injured while playing with our junior camogie team. Get well soon, your club needs you.
Next weekend, we are hosting the Ladies football Féile competition and we wish our own girls and indeed all teams the very best of luck. The Féile tournament is a major event for all players in all codes. Admission is free. So please come along.
Support for all our teams remains disappointingly low and we would like to remedy this. So, come on folks let’s make an effort to support our young men and women as they proudly represent our club. They deserve it.
When using our Carrickhill and club pitches, we wish remind all mentors to ensure that all pins used to fix nets are collected afterwards. They can do serious damage to grass cutting equipment.
Like all GAA people, we were saddened at the sudden and untimely death of Dave Billings. Dave was a decent and kind man. We extend our sincere sympathy to his family. May His Soul Rest in Peace
