Recent and Upcoming Games – Our senior footballers recorded an impressive league win over St. Mary’s Saggart on Saturday evening. With one game remaining we are within reach of the playoffs.

Our under 9 ladies football group had a busy Sunday morning when with 3 teams they played 9 games against Clontarf, winning 7.

Our adult hurlers have a vital league game away to Ballyboden on Thursday evening at 6:45 pm (please note that this match has been brought forward from Saturday evening).

Despite putting up a brave display, our junior ladies football team were beaten in their championship semi-final by a superior Ballyboughill side. The future is still bright though for this group.

Ladies Sevens - A reminder that we will once again be hosting the All Ireland Ladies Football Sevens on Saturday 23 September. All pitches at the Club will be in use all day and the usual helpers will be required.

Recent Death - We extend our sympathy to the Harrington family on the death of Carmel’s brother Joe Murray. Joe was a proud Roscommon man. May His Soul Rest in Peace.

Dublin Camogie and Football - Congratulations to the Dublin ladies and mens football teams on reaching the All Ireland final. Hard luck to Sean Hawkshaw, Karl Lynch Bissett and Gavin Nangle who played for the losing Dublin minor footballers in their match against Derry on Sunday.

Best wishes to Grainne Power, Laura Walsh and the Dublin junior camogie team who have qualified for the All Ireland final where they will play Westmeath on Sunday week.

Tickets for the All Ireland Football Final-  Tickets for the All Ireland Football Final should be ordered as soon as possible from Dan Linehan by text only at 085 1530569. There will be a huge demand for tickets and as we will probably get less than 50% of the tickets we need from the Dublin County Board we are limiting ticket orders to one ticket per member and are requesting that members specify whether they want a stand or terrace ticket. Members are also requested not to order a ticket for non-members. The allocation of tickets will be carried out by a Sub-Committee of the Club’s Executive and tickets will only be allocated to fully paid-up members of the Club.

Saturday Morning Coffee Shop – Thank you to Groundforce and all the other volunteers who are helping with the installation of our new Saturday Morning Coffee Shop in the Club’s Function Hall.

Club Lotto – What Would You Do With €3,100 Tax Free - Members are requested to continue supporting the Club Lotto which is a vital part of the funding of the Club’s continued development.

Monday Night is Trad Night – Every Monday night there is a Traditional Irish Music Session in the Club Bar from around 9:30 or so.
