November 2, 2015
The curtain finally came down on a very successful year for our junior camogie girls yesterday. They have already won the league and the cup. On this occasion, they were narrowly beaten in the championship final. Well done girls, you still had a great year.
Our under 16 hurlers had a good win over Faughs. The lads now go on to minor for 2016 where they will join up with the eligible players from this year to form what should be a very good squad.
Saturday mornings remain incredibly busy at the club and I am hearing word of a formal challenge game between our under 8 and 9 boys. This game is guaranteed to be a “sell out”
The new All Weather schedule has been agreed and circulated. It is also on the club notice board. It comes into effect immediately and teams must adhere to it. Teams are listed as they will be for the 2016 Season. Any queries, please contact the Chairperson of your section.
It might be November, but despite that we have 4 crucial games next weekend. On Saturday at 2 30pm at home, our under 21 footballers commence their championship campaign with a game against St. Jude’s. On Sunday morning at 11am at home, our minor footballers play their championship semi final against Templeogue. Also at home at 11am on Sunday, our senior hurlers have a “winner take all” final league game against Erin’s Isle. Then at 2pm, our junior hurlers are away to Cuala in Shanganagh. This is their last game of the year and with the 2 teams residing in first and second place in the league, it is effectively a league final.We wish all the teams the best of luck and we ask you all to come along and support them.
We send our congratulations to Ballyboden and Cuala on the winning their respective Dublin senior titles.
Preparations are underway for our AGM which takes place on the 4th of December. Nominations and Motions can be submitted in writing to club secretary Tim Maher. The AGM is an opportunity for all paid up full members to have a say in the running of our affairs. So please, get involved.
The weather remains good but pitches are still getting soft and we wish to remind all mentors to do any physical training off the playing areas.
In the interest of security and safety, we ask all of you to ensure that dressing rooms are locked at all times and that no property is left in cars.
