Club Notes

September 5, 2017

Recent and Upcoming Games – Congratulations to our under 14 ladies football team who had a fine win over Ballyboughill in the first round of the championship and to our under 13 camogie girls who defeated St. Judes in a difficult away fixture also in the championship. Well done also to our under 14 hurlers who came from 9 points down to overcome Castleknock and to our under 16 hurlers who had an impressive win over Erin’s Isle during the week. Both were league games. Our junior hurlers earned a draw on Sunday morning after a hard fought encounter with St. Brendan’s. We send our best wishes to Grainne Power and Laura Walsh who line out for the Dublin Premier junior team in the All Ireland final against Westmeath in Croke Park next Sunday. Our senior footballers finish their regular league Season with a home game against Erin’s Isle at 6-15 on Saturday evening. Our minor hurlers are away to Oliver Plunketts at 11am on Sunday morning.
