A good win for the Senior footballers vs Ballinteer last weekend, Inter footballers lost out to a strong St Judes side and also Skerries in the last two weeks, Jnr As had a good win vs Peregrines but will need to beat St Judes in their last game to be sure of not being in possible relegation play off. Jnr Bs unfortunately suffered a heavy defeat vs a very strong Oalfs side. Disappointment for the Dublin U16 footballers in the Gerry Reilly Final and hard luck to our own Sam Keogh who was part of the squad. Best of Luck to the Dublin Ladies Senior Football team and our own Abbey Shiels, Ken Robinson and Paul Casey part of the squad and backroom team, a massive game against Cork this weekend.
Also this weekend sees our Senior Camogie team open their Championship campaign away to Ballinteer St John, away in Marley Park at 10am on Sunday 25th August. Support very much appreciated and welcome.
