Well done to our senior footballers who got their league campaign off to an impressive start with a well deserved victory over Round Towers Clondalkin. Our minor hurlers were in league action also and they had a fine win over Rialto Gaels. Our young hurlers were in fine form also with wins recorded by our under 9, 10, 12, 13, 15 and 16 teams. The under 14s drew. Our under 13 camogie girls enjoyed a pre season friendly against Ratoath.
The adult hurling leagues commence next Sunday with our seniors at home against Kilmacud at 11am while our juniors are away Thomas Davis in the afternoon. Our minor footballers are away to Naomh Baróg
Our camogie AGM took place last week and Gerry Carthy continues as chairman while Colm Delaney is the secretary.
On Saturday the 11th of June, the club is planning to host a national under 13 football tournament involving 16 club teams from all over Ireland This is a major undertaking and all pitches at the club will be in use all day. We are seeking one (or more) sponsors for this event. If you would like to get involved, please contact Barry Mulligan or Andrew Rittweger. More details will be available in the weeks ahead.
Congratulations to the Dublin ladies and men’s football teams on their league wins over the weekend. Our Gala ball takes place on the 12th of March. There are still a few tickets available from Jim Carroll or from Eamonn in the bar.
Once again we wish to remind all of you that membership fees are due and must be paid immediately. Due to the high cost of running your club, we are unable to tolerate late payments.
Our Groundforce team continue to work hard maintaining our facilities with recent repairs carried out on the netting behind the goals and to the lighting on the Mound Field. This is in addition to the regular daily activity. Thanks lads.
We now have one of the best Traditional music sessions in the club every Monday night. Admission is free and all are welcome. Please come along.
