A very busy weekend of games started on Friday night when our AFL7 team travelled to play Crokes. Despite a good performance, the lads had to eventually give way in a high scoring encounter.
Sunday morning saw our senior footballers face Castleknock away in their first league game. This was always going to be a difficult assignment and so it proved with the home side winning with something to spare.
Our minor hurlers had a very impressive win over Round Towers Clondalkin.
Our recently formed AFL11N team travelled to St .Maurs on Sunday afternoon. They scored 5-12 and came away with handsome victory. We should not be surprised by this though because when you look at the squad virtually all of them were top senior footballers in their time. They may no longer have the blinding speed or the rippling torsos of their youth but they still know how to play football.
On Saturday morning, our under 8 boys split up and headed for Kilbarrack and Lusk conquering both venues. The under 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 boys were also victorious. The under 15 boys were in a comfortable position at half time but were pipped in the end. Our girls were in action also. The under 13 footballers and the under 16 camogie girls had very useful friendlies against Clontarf and Fingallians respectively.
Next weekend sees the start of the adult hurling leagues. Our AHL2 lads play St Marks at 10-30 while the AHL8 team is in action at 3pm against Erin Go Bragh. Both games are at home. Our minor footballers are away to St. Pats Donabate at 11.
Well done Aoibhe Dillon, Laura Twomey, Laura Walsh and Gráinne Power who were all in action for the Dublin senior and intermediate camogie teams over the weekend.
