July 29, 2019
League Champions -Well done to the Minor footballers who secured the Division 1 league title with an impressive win away from home vs NaFianna (Report Below), well done to Dave Cullen, Ollie Collins, Joe Lavin, Buddy O’Sullivan. The team have been very impressive throughout the campaign and we wish them the best as they prepare for what will be a very competitive Championship. Disappointment for the Senior Footballers on Wednesday, as they lost to St Vincents on a scoreline of 2.09 – 1.11. Inter Ladies secured a Cup semi-final spot with a good win on the same night against Skerries. Another Big league win for our Junior B hurlers on Thursday. Jnr B footballers drew on Sunday afternoon. Jnr As lost out to Geraldine P Moran’s, they did call on some experience from the bench but even he couldn’t make a difference.
Senior Hurlers next game is away to St Brigids on the 10th August at 6.30pm. Also the Championship fixtures have been set. Sunday 8th September will be a busy day with Senior Hurlers taking on Whitehall in Parnell Park at 4:15pm, the Jnr As play earlier on in the day at 11am vs Commercials in Jnr A relegation match and the Jnr B hurlers play a home quarter-final at 3pm also on the 8th September. Senior Footballers vs Clontarf in the last group game is fixed for the 14th September in O’Toole Park at 3:15pm
Well done to Daire Newcombe, Harry Ladd, Mark Lavin and Emmet Allen who are part of the Dublin U20 footballers that beat Galway and have set up an All-Ireland Final vs Cork this weekend coming. We wish them well and hopefully they can bring home the Clarke Cup. Well done to Joey Dunne and Liam Garrigan who represented the club so well in the inaugural Jim Boggan Skills Competition in Crumlin GAA Club.
After two very successful camps in July, the camps will resume on August 12th for football and continue with hurling on 19th August. All children attending a club camp this summer will receive a green jersey. For those who attend a second camp and already have a green jersey, a black jersey is on offer.
If mentors of relevant age groups could push these, I would be very grateful. For booking, the following link applies. https://member.clubforce.com/memlist_m.asp?ll_id=480
