Club Notes

April 21, 2014

Well done to our senior camogie girls who recorded a hard earned league victory away to Erin’s Isle. The team is managed by Tom O’Sullivan and after a difficult start to the season, the response of the girls has been brilliant. They play at home tonight (Tuesday) against Raheny.

Our under 17 ladies football team defeated Raheny during the week. Our seniors are at home on Wednesday night.

The adult hurling championship begins at the weekend with our seniors at home on Saturday evening while our juniors are at home on Sundayafternoon. Please come along and support all our teams.

Well done to Sean Hawkshaw, Karl Bissett and josh Hoban who all played for Dublin north in the under 15 football blitz at the club on Saturday. Dara O’Boyle is also part of this squad but is currently injured.

Thank you to all who made the minor hurling trip to Scotland. It was a great experience for all concerned.

Congratulations to the Dublin under 21 footballers on reaching the all Ireland final where they will face Roscommon.

Serious work is underway to rejuvenate our Rounders section. People of all ages and skill level are invited to contact Michael Geoghegan. It doesn’t matter if you never played before.

All membership fees are now overdue and must be paid immediately. Please contact club Registrar Harry Gibson or give your payment to Eamonn in the bar.

Thank you to all who helped install the new floor in our upstairs meeting room. This was done on a totally voluntary basis and is a credit to those concerned. Our voluntary maintenance group otherwise known as “Groundforce” continue to work hard on a daily basis in order to keep the club in pristine condition inside and out. We thank them for their efforts.

We wish a speedy recovery to Joe Reale and to a number of other club members who are a little unwell at the moment.

Thank you to all who took part in the Easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday morning. There was great excitement when egg number 56 was found by Hugo.

The participants in our Strictly competition are training feverishly and we are all looking forward to a great night on the 10th of May.

We extend our sympathy to Pat McCabe and his family on the death of Pat’s brother in law Eamonn Collins. May Eamonn’s Souls Rest in Peace.
