Another Féile and another successful weekend, well done to Michael Wisdom and all his helpers who had the club looking so well and organised, on the field both teams won one and lost two, and went out at group stages, but at all times played with great heart and determination and represented the club magnificently, so well done to the coaches, mentors, parents and all the support staff. Jnr B hurlers maintained their unbeaten record in league on Sunday, disappointed for both Senior and Jnr A hurlers though, also for our U15 Camogie team who lost out in a thrilling league decider. Better news for our Jnr 3 Camogie team who secured a league semi-final win with a last-minute goal, the Senior Camogie team also finished their league with a win on Tuesday night. On Wednesday night our Inter Ladies football failed to progress in Championship losing out to a very strong Parnells team. Our Junior Ladies footballers lost out to Ballinteer and our Senior footballers lost v Ballyboden on a scoreline of 3-20 to 3-15

Well done to Chris Crummey and the Dublin Senior hurlers, who drew with Wexford and remain in the hunt to progress in Leinster.

Juvenile Ladies Report
The U10 girls played at home against Clontarf and Geraldine P Moran’s. The games were played in a good spirit with some good performances from the Lucan girls especially when they had to play for Clontarf. Well done to Amy Doyle on her first game out for the club and again to the other girls who have just started playing matches this year. The opposition also commented on the good quality of the referees.

Even with Communion season in full swing we were able to have four U8 girls football teams play at home on Sunday morning to Ballinteer St Johns. The last time these teams met was the girls first ever match, so there was great excitement from both teams to see each other again and to see how much they have all improved in such a short time. Great morning of fun, banter, and football.
