Club Notes 13th December
December 13, 2021
Pictured is Fionn Burke (U 9’s) dropping off his backpack for the homeless appeal.
Tickets are slow to be returned for the weekend’s Christmas Draw. We would ask everyone to return tickets as soon as possible. To facilitate this we will be opening the clubhouse from 7:30pm til 9pm each even this week. Tickets can also be purchased online here.
A mixed weekend for Camogie. Minor A lost out albeit after extra time, while Minor B progress to a Final next weekend, Minor C also lost out.
Our Minor A camogie team bowed out of the championship with a narrow defeat to Castleknock after extra time in an exciting semi-final.
Castleknock got off to a flying start and raced into a 5 point lead, Lucan clawed their way back into the match and led by a point in the final quarter, the game swung back and forth and finished level at full time. In the first period of extra time Castleknock notched up another 5 point lead which our players cut to 2 points, agonisingly Lucan hit the crossbar twice in the closing seconds of the game after many attacks on the Castleknock goal.
The team had good wins over Na Fianna and Kilmacud in the earlier rounds of the competition. As the players take a well earned break for Christmas we can look forward to a busy and exciting year ahead for Adult Camogie.
