Manager Mattie Kenny will be very happy with his first two outings in the Walsh Cup- good wins over Carlow and Offaly. Dublin are now through to the semi-finals. His next outing is the Bluestars game on Saturday next at Naomh Barrog GAA Club. Congrats to Dublin North and Colaiste Eoin who had good wins over Birr and Kilkenny CBS in the Leinster championship last week. All those who sign up for 2019 membership before January 31st will be in a draw for a copy of ‘The Hurlers’ by Paul Rousse. This is an excellent read. It describes how the 1887 All-Ireland championship was a focus of huge public interest, political infighting and bitter local rows. The winner of the members draw for December is Denis Carr. He will receive a copy of The Hurlers.
