Our senior footballers are scheduled to play St. Mary’s away in the league on Saturday evening at 6:30.

Dublin Camogie, Hurling and Football – Well done to Ciara Holland and Hannah Collins who starred for the Dublin under 17 ladies football team as they won the All Ireland Blitz.
Good luck to the Dubs in their minor and senior football semi-finals next Sunday. A special word of encouragement to Sean Hawkshaw, Karl Lynch Bissett, Gavin Nangle and Dara O’Boyle who are part of the Dublin football minor squad.
Best wishes to Grainne Power, Laura Walsh and the Dublin junior camogie team who have qualified for the All Ireland final where they will play Westmeath.
Tickets for the Dublin v Tyrone Match – Tickets for the Dublin versus Tyrone Football Semi-Final match will be available for collection from the Club Bar on Thursday night from 8 pm. There has been a huge demand for tickets for the match and we did not get all of the tickets we ordered from the Dublin County Board. We got all of the Terrace tickets ordered but some are for the Nally Terrace rather than the Hill. We almost got all of the Family tickets we had orders for and are short of tickets for just one family. However we only received 50 Stand tickets for the 107 tickets we ordered and unfortunately we have had to restrict ticket allocations in nearly all cases to just 1 Stand ticket per paid up member. We are hopeful that there will be a second allocation of Stand tickets for the match this week.
If you are not going to the game or the Kerry v Mayo replay on Saturday why not come along to the Club where we show all sporting events on our big screens.
