Club Notes

May 25, 2015

Congratulations to all our young players who made their First Holy Communion recently.

Thank you to all who supported the charity fundraiser in memory of our colleague Paddy McConnell. It was a wonderful evening and it was great to see so many former players around the club. Not all of them had retained the “rippling torsos” of their youth but most were in very good shape. At the end of the game, “Dublin” captain Joe McGowan accepted the trophy from Bronagh McConnell. The ball had been thrown in to start the game by Jim Gavin, current Dublin manager.

Many of our young players are facing into important second and third level exams at the moment. We wish all of them the very best of luck. Many will also travel abroad for the Summer. Please be careful and return safely.

This week sees our hurlers resume championship action. Our seniors are at home to Na Fianna on Wednesday while the juniors are away to Cuala on Thursday. Our adult ladies football team had an impressive win over Crokes in the championship and are in action again on Wednesday evening. Our under 10 and 12 camogie girls also won.

Good luck to Shane Carthy and the Dublin footballers who play Longford on Sunday and to the hurlers who play Galway. Both games are in Croke Park.

Our Mini leagues and Summer Camps will be running as usual. Contact club coach Paddy Gorey for full details.

Well done to St. Marnocks Boys team who won the Fingal football league final in Parnell Park and to the girls who lost out narrowly.

We are delighted to announce the return of Aonghus Óg McAnally to the club for a very special staging of his new show – “The Games People Play“. The show takes place on the 30th of May at 8.30pm. A wine reception will take place at 7.30pm. Tickets cost €15 and are available from Tony Owens or from Eamonn in the Bar. Please come along for a great nights entertainment.
