Recent and Upcoming Games – Well done to our under 15 hurlers who have qualified for the Shield semi-final after a deserved victory over Faughs. Dylan Kilbride and Donal Leen (both members of our adult hurling team) help to coach the lads. Our junior hurlers completed their season with a game against Naomh Barróg. We thank team mentors Aidan Punch, Tony Larkin and Jack Hughes for all their hard work throughout the year.
Congratulations to Kathleen Colreavy and the Dublin ladies on regaining the Brendan Martin cup for the first time since 2010. Among the attendance of over 46,000 were 250 young players from the Club.
The big games continue for our lads. On Saturday evening at 5 pm our senior footballers play St. Peregrines in the B champion quarter final at home. Then on Sunday morning it’s across the field to St. Sylvester’s where our minor footballers play the home team at 11 am in what is a championship knockout game. We urgently request the support of all Club members for both those games.
