Recent and Upcoming Games – It was a very good week for our young teams. Our under 16 hurlers recorded 2 wins. On Wednesday evening they defeated St. Catherines at home and on Saturday afternoon they travelled to Erin’s Isle and came away with 2 valuable league points.
Our minor hurlers were involved in a great game also in Finglas against Erin’s Isle on Sunday morning. Despite trailing by 6 points at half time, the lads put in a superb second half to win by 3.
Our under 15 boys defeated Whitehall to qualify for the Football Shield final. That game takes place at home against St. Maurs next Sunday morning at 11-30.
Our minor ladies football team recorded another win on Monday night. Our under 12 boys played their first league game at the week. Well done to all teams and mentors. This is what it is all about.
Next Saturday, we host the Ladies Football Féile.
Our adult hurlers have a vital league game at home against Castleknock on Wednesday evening at 7-30.
