Club Notes

February 25, 2019

Our adult hurlers (AHL 3) got their league season off to a fantastic start with an impressive win over St. Marks. Our AHL 8 team also got off to a positive start with a hard fought victory over Erin Go Bragh.

Our minor footballers were involved in a high scoring game against an accomplished St Pats (Donabate) team losing out by 3 points in the end.

Our under 8 boys played their first Go Games hurling game on Saturday. Their level of skill was very impressive. The under 9 boys travelled to Tyrellstown and Balbriggan and reigned supreme at both venues. The under 10, 13 and 14 boys enjoyed wins also with the under 10s receiving lavish compliments from opponents Lucan.

It was a busy weekend for our girls also. Our Under 13, 14, 15 and 16 camogie teams were in action and all feel a little short. Better days ahead I can assure you. Our under 12 ladies foootball team challenged our neighbours St. Sylvester’s to a friendly and beat them. Well done to all teams and mentors.

Our adult footballers are back in action next weekend with our 3 teams at home on Sunday. Our AFL2 team play Raheny at 10-30, the AFL7 lads take on St. Vincents at 12 while our AFL11N play Ballymun at 3pm. Our minor hurlers are away to Ballinteer at 11am. Let’s get out and support all our teams.

It was a historic weekend for Dublin senior teams also with all 4 (Hurling, Football, Camogie and Ladies football) recording league wins. Aoibhe Dillon and Laura Twomey are involved with the camogie team. Well done.

The club is running a Foundation Coaching Course on the 28th of February and the 7th of March. Contact club GPO David Sweeney for details. 087 9077229.

Naomh Mearnóg is endeavoring to build a community outreach team to help us to better connect with members and the community.

If you have 30 minutes a week to give, there’s lots of ways you can get involved from posting on social media / website, to writing content for our weekly emails to designing our marketing materials.
