Recent Games – Our Inter hurlers finished their season with an impressive win over Crokes. This guarantees our league status for next year and we thank Gary, Michael and the squad for their efforts. It certainly was the weekend of “come backs” Our minor ladies football team came from 18 points down to defeat St. Maurs in the shield semi-final. Meanwhile our under 14 ladies football team turned a 15 point half time deficit into a 3 point victory over St Pat’s Donabate in their Cup semi-final. Our under 13 hurlers made the long trip to Commercials and came away with the league points and our under 16 footballers got the better of St. Brigid’s in a tough encounter. Well done to all concerned.
