Recent and Upcoming Games – Well done to our minor footballers who defeated Whitehall in the championship on Sunday morning. This was a vital win and it sets up an exciting encounter away to neighbours St. Sylvester’s in 2 weeks. It was a busy week for our under 14 girls with both the Ladies football team and the camogie team recording impressive championship victories. Our minor ladies football team defeated Na Fianna to reach the championship semi final. Our under 14 boys football team defeated Clontarf while the under 13 drew. Our minor hurlers are in action next Sunday morning at home at 11 against Thomas Davis in the championship.
Congratulations to the “Dubs ” on making it 3 in a row and good luck to Kathleen Colreavy and the “Jackies” next Sunday in the final.
