Well done to our adult hurlers who have reached the championship quarter final after defeating Naomh Fionbarra in their final group game. We finished top of the group after winning all our games. The quarter finals are scheduled to take place in 2 weeks.
Our minor footballers got their championship campaign off to a positive start with an impressive win over Kilmacud. Our next fixture in this competition will be against Fingallians at home.
It was a very busy week for our under 15 teams, boys and girls. In football, the boys defeated Ballymun during the week and on Sunday morning they grabbed their helmets and hurleys and headed to Tallaght where they overcame Thomas Davis in the championship.
Our under 15 ladies football team defeated Ballinteer and drew with Skerries. The Skerries game was a cracker where the concession of a late goal meant we had to settle for the draw. Both were championship encounters.
The under 14 hurlers defeated Naomh Olaf. Despite a slow start, the lads stuck to their task and emerged deserving winners.
Our senior footballers play St. Anne’s on Saturday evening at 5-30 in the championship in Balgriffin. A win here will put us in the championship quarter final. We need support.
Thank you to the under 12, 13 and 14 camogie players of James Stephens who visited us on Sunday morning and enjoyed a great game against our young players.
Congratulations to Aoibhe Dillon, Laura Walsh and Grainne Power and their Dublin colleagues on winning the All Ireland Premier junior camogie title. A great achievement.
On Sunday we host the All Ireland Ladies football 7s tournament. All the usual helpers will be required. Contact Frank Lynch
