Well done to our senior hurlers who have reached the Intermediate championship final after a hard earned victory over Raheny. This was an excellent team performance and the victory was well deserved. This win also ensures that we return to the Senior B championship next year. After a great run, our junior hurlers lost out in the semi final to an exceptionally strong Skerries side. Despite this loss, the juniors have a lot to play for and are currently top of the league with 4 games remaining. The hurlers have put in a great effort this year and credit is due to the management teams of David, Cliodhna, Mattie and Tiernan who guide our seniors and Tony, Jack and Aidan who are at the helm with the juniors.
We had a number of our under age players representing Dublin during the last week. U16 footballers Dara O’Boyle, Sean Hawkshaw and Karl Bissett were on the Dublin team that beat Meath in the Leinster Academy final. Gavin Nangle is also in this squad but was on holidays. U16 camogie player Aoibhe Dillon represented Dublin in the All Ireland final. U16 hurlers Shane Kavanagh and Dara O’Boyle were also on inter county duty. U14 hurlers Jack Keogh and Tommy Cosgrove played in the prestigious Tony Forristal tournament. Well done to all of them. We are very fortunate to talented players in all codes.
