Club Notes

May 16, 2017

1996 Intermediate Football Team Reunion – The reunion of our 1996 championship and league winning Intermediate football team will take place in the Club on Saturday night. As most of those players have retained the rippling torsos of their youth, a football game involving that team will take place at 7pm. Paramedics, please stand by. All are welcome.

Recent Games – Congratulations to Sophie Brennan who is part of the Dublin under 16 ladies football squad who won the Leinster title. Well done also to Tommy Kinnane who is with the Dublin minor hurling squad who have reached the Leinster final. Our Senior Footballers have reached the next round of the Senior B Championship as a result of getting a walkover from UCD.

Upcoming Games – We have 2 huge fixtures next Saturday. At 2:30 pm our Under 16 footballers travel to St Peregrines ground to take on Clan Na Gael in the Championship Final. We will just be back when it will be time to cross the field to St. Sylvester’s where our adult hurlers have a vital league game at 6 pm.

Govan Joliffe-Byrne Memorial Tournament – The 2nd annual Govan Jolliffe-Byrne U-13 football tournament will take place on Saturday 3 June at Páirc Mearnóg. Teams from all over the country will be competing in this unique event, which will commence with the football in the morning and culminate with a camping experience for all involved on the night of the tournament on specially designated pitches.

Congratulations – Well done to Darrach Keaveney who won a medal at the Comhra Gaeilge competition at the Dublin Fleadh Cheoil. Congratulations to all the boys and girls from St. Helens school who received their First Holy Communion last week.

Recent Death – We extend our sympathy to the Norton family on the death of Tommy. Harry (his son), Paul (grandson) and Adrienne (granddaughter) all played for the club. May His Soul Rest in Peace.
