LAOCH NA SEACHTAINE:
After a hugely successful weekend for the club, this weeks heroes of the week are a little from left field. The heroes are the 20 plus people who attended our foundation coaching course during the previous week. Well done all, safeguarding the future of the club. Take a collective bow, you are all our laoch na seachtaine.
And now to the role of honour from the weekend, and it’s a full one. Well done to our Gaelic for mother and others group who had a fantastic day at he annual blitz on Saturday, a brilliant set of displays by all. Well done also to our under 10’s who hosted a fantastic blitz on Saturday and thank you to the visiting clubs. A huge congratulations to our under 13’s who won the league on Saturday with a fantastic end of season victory away from home. Well done also to our under 15’s who won their championship game over Skerries on Sunday morning. This followed a fantastic hard fought win for our minor A team in the shield over Whitehall with Sergei Runin scoring an amazing 1-7. There was an unfortunate game for our minor B team who’s game was abandoned due to a serious injury. Best wishes and a speedy recovery to the Judes goalkeeper. On Saturday evening, our intermediate footballers travelled over to Marks for a must win league game, and duly obliged. Congratulations to Dermot and all his team on completing a hugely important victory. And finally, our senior footballers completed the weekend with a fine victory over Kilmacud Crokes in a packed Parnell park. They will now play the county final in Parnell park on bank holiday Monday in 2 weeks, time to be confirmed. We look forward to this clash on what will hopefully be a MUNday again!
Huge thanks to John Small, Philly McMahon, Evan Comerford and James McCarthy who toured the schools in the area last week, showcasing Sam Maguire to the next generation. Inspirations on and off the field. Thanks again lads.
