We had another superb week on the playing pitches. Our senior footballers (men) recorded 2 league wins to remain 3rd in the table just 2 points off the league leaders. Our AFL7 team had 2 wins also while our AFL 11 team had 1 win and got a walkover at the weekend. Our newly formed adult ladies football team are in flying form and they recorded their second championship win to go top of their group. Our junior camogie team drew with Naomh Baróg and it’s great to see some of the stars from the recent past back on the playing field. Our adult hurlers are back in action this week. The Inter team play Clontarf at home on Wednesday night in a vital league game while the juniors are at home on Thursday night. There has been a massive increase in the numbers of club members attending our home fixtures recently. This is a huge positive for the players and we hope it continues.
Our Annual Govan Jolliffe- Byrne tournament takes place on Saturday when we will welcome 16 teams from all over the country to our club. Once again we thank Cathal and Niall O’Reilly of KOBA restaurant for the generous sponsorship. As with all sponsors, we ask club members to support them as often as possible. We will have approximately 600 players at the club on Saturday and we are asking parents and players to help with some of the catering by making sandwiches. These can be left in the club from 8am on Saturday morning. We also need help on the day and we request that as many people as possible come along to assist with the running of the event.
Congratulations to the “Dubs” who got their championship campaign off to an impressive start. Tickets for Dublin games can be ordered by fully paid up members by texting (only) to 085 1530569.
