A good win for our Senior Camogie team in Championship gets them back on track, they now face a massive game away to Ballyboden this Sunday the 22nd at 10am. The Jnr 3 team Camogie team had a good win on Thursday last, unfortunately the Inter team lost out to a strong Crumlin outfit. Both U15 hurling teams had good wins last weekend and now sees the 15A hurlers through to the Championship Final vs Kilmacud Crokes. U16 footballers opened their Championship with a draw. Disappointment for our Minor A hurlers as they crashed out of Championship, following the loss to a very good and fancied Castleknock side.

This weekend sees our Senior Hurlers in Championship Qtr. Final vs Craobh Chiarain at 3pm in Parnell on Saturday 21st. Also this weekend our Minor Footballers will be looking to get their Championships back on track with a win, A are away to Naomh Mearnog, B at home to Whitehall Sunday 22nd at 11am. The finally on Sunday our Jnr B hurlers will be looking to secure 2 promotions in a row as they take on a tough NaFianna side in the Championship semi-final, 3pm 12th Lock. Support very welcome and appreciated as always.

Of course there was a lot of history made last weekend, and the club is of course very proud of our latest All Ireland winners, well done to Darren Gavin (Dublin Senior Football) Abby Sheils (Dublin Senior Ladies Football) and Ken Robinson and Paul Casey (Dublin Ladies Mgt team); As always they all represented the club so well and we are very proud of their achievements.

Our U14 Ladies footballers had a wonderful morning, hosting St Josephs Doorebarefield, before heading in on the bus, organised by our Ladies Section, to break the record crowd at the All-Ireland Final, great support and well done to all involved.
