CONGRATULATIONS to our senior player Sinead Murphy who got married this weekend. Sinead is from Wexford and returned there to tie the knot. All our senior team decamped down there for the day, so too did the management team to keep an eye on the girls in advance of their first round of the senior club championship! This match is scheduled for the 14th October and the venue is Bray Emmets. A number of our teams were in championship semi final action this weekend. The U13As defeated last year’s winners Kilmacud Crokes to advance to a final against ‘Boden. The U12As had a very strong performance against Scoil U Chonnaill to earn their place in the final, also against ‘Boden. The U12Cs advanced to the final with a strong win over neighbours Cuala this team is an U11 team that came up for championship and will definitely be a team of the future, with players such as Emma, Jodie, Molly, Kez, Jessic, Lily and Rosalind showing skills way beyond their years. The highlight of the weekend was the U14Cs who have made it to the championship final following their defeat of O’Toole’s. The management has kept this team together over the years despite always been the underdogs and suffering heavy defeats. There are a core of 20 players and they rarely augment their teams with players from the lower divisions so it is a true C team.
Earlier this year they were runners up in division 5 feile and now their appearance in their first championship final is the icing on the cake. Well done girls!
A DISAPPOINTING esult for our minors on Sunday However, full marks to the team for never giving up and battling to the very end. We are so near but not there yet.
