It was the turn of the rescheduled Féile this week to show piece all that is good within the club, the girls played with great spirit and were unlucky to draw one and lose their first game to Skerries, eventual winners, by only a point. In the last game TSS were too strong but the girls played with huge commitment. They play St Slyvesters in a winner takes all game for the league title tonight (FRIDAY night) at home. Thanks to James Scott who acted as co-ordinator and to all the volunteers and helpers.

Hard luck to the Senior Footballers who lost twice this week to OPER & St Brigids. However, the U-8 footballers had a big event on the Saturday when 27 of them attended the Senior Football League match v Oliver Plunketts ER. They got to form a guard of honour for the senior team as they took the field and also played a mini blitz at half time. Both the boys and parents who attended the event had a very good experience. A comprehensive win for our Inter Footballers on Friday night last vs Erins Isle, unfortunately they lost their first game in the league vs Round Towers on Tuesday night but still very much remain in the hunt for honours. The Jnr As also kept themselves very much in touch for league honours with tough wins on Sunday morning and again on Tuesday. Jnr B footballers went down to a very strong Cuala outfit.

Mixed week last week for the Minor footballers who beat Thomas Davis on Wednesday but lost to BSJ last weekend. The Minor Ladies footballers had a good win vs St Mary’s Leixlip 2-18 to 2-13. Good win also for the U15B team; although the 15As went down to a strong Clanna Gael team. The Jnr A Ladies commenced their Championship with a big win away to Croi Ro Naofa

Hard Luck to Chris Crummey and Johnny McCaffrey who were on duty with Dublin Hurlers. Well done to Colm Walsh and Evan Dowling who are with Dublin Minor hurlers who got their first win on the LMHC round robin. Well done to Millie Reid and Lauren Dawson who represented Lucan as Dublin U15 Camogie won the Meath blitz. Hard luck to Mark Lavin, Matthew Dunne & Jake Rooney of the Dublin minors who lost to Meath in Rd 2 of the LMFC Round robin.
