Another fabulous Féile weekend , both teams played with great heart, spirit and determination, and it culminated with our D1 team bringing home the cup for a famous 2-in-a-row. Well done to the whole squad and management of Paul, Kevin, Diarmuid, Fintan and Fergal, a fabulous achievement. A huge thanks to Liam Mulhall (Co-Ordinator) and Mike Hanley and all the volunteers and supporters who ensured the Saturday was a great day and showcased the best of the club. It was great to see the teams mixing with our Senior hurlers in the week leading up to Féile, giving them that added inspiration and our Senior hurlers have a massive week themselves this week, they play the second round of Championship this Friday (Good Friday) at 6:30pm vs Setanta in O’Toole Park, Crumlin. Your Support can really make a difference and it is very welcome and appreciated.

A good weekend last weekend for our adult footballers, with 3 out of the 4 teams recording comprehensive wins in Championship. Our Senior footballers unbeaten all year, dispatched Skerries Harps on the Friday night, thanks to all who travelled to Garristown, next up for them is Ballyboden on Thursday 25th April at 7:30pm in Monastery Road, Clondalkin. Support welcome.

Good midweek results as well with both our Minor Ladies football teams recording wins, the Minor A team are now 4/4 and with one more win can secure the league title. Also on Tuesday our Snr Camogie team had a good win away vs Judes 2-13 to 11. Also the two Jnr Camogie teams had good victories.

Also this Good Friday, we are aiming to do a Club Clean up; this of course takes of elbow grease and of course we need YOU, the club members, the volunteers to give whatever time you can, we are particularly looking for those with specialised skills such as landscaping, electricians, carpenters etc. etc. but all forms of help as always is welcome. 10am start.

Well done to the Millie, Lily, Lauren (c), Phoebe and Sinead part of the Dublin 16 camogie team who had a big win vs Wexford and have qualified for the Leinster Final. Also to Emma O’Brien who had a big win vs Kildare with the Dublin U16 LF team.

U8 girls Camogie: Cuala v Lucan Sarsfields Sunday 14th April. A bitterly cold and windy morning in Cuala. Our U8 Camogie teams worked very hard against a combined opposition of Cuala and St. Marks. Their hard work was rewarded with a little Easter goodie bag from one of our parents. Our U8 girls are taking this week off training as many are attending the Easter camp. Hoping they enjoy this and their Easter break.

Juvenile Football Both U-8 groups were away from home last weekend. Group 1 were away to Geraldine P. Moran and Group 2 were away to St. Judes and all teams competed really well.
