THE annual Kevin’s Easter Tournament takes place this Friday and Saturday at their Dolphin Park HQ.
All at the club are thinking about one of their bravest young men, Seán Lyne, who died last week.
Seán battled cancer with all the grace he could muster. “He was a great club member. He had such a positive outlook on life. He will be missed by everybody,” says Paul Crampton.
The club’s tournament is now very much part of the Easter Parade.
“We are grateful to so many Dublin clubs who have entered several teams,” notes Paul. The juvenile event will throw-in on Friday at 10am and continue all day.
“There will be a Friday Family Funday at 2pm,” adds Paul.
“Everybody is welcome. There should be some great hurling and camogie action over the two days.”
Friday’s age-groups include U8, U9, U10, U12, U14 and U16, with an U11’s section in camogie. The U14 grade, with eight teams, promises to be a highlight.
Among those on show will be Liffey Gaels, Crumlin, Good Counsel, Setanta, Clanna Gael Fontenoy, St Jude’s, O’Toole’s, Erin’s Isle and Na Fianna.
Kevin’s are also thrilled to welcome their old friends from Carraig Dubh from Down, who they hosted for the Féile last year.
On Saturday, the adults play for the Brian Scott Cup.
That begins at 10.30 and it has attracted entries from Ballyboden St Enda’s, Good Counsel, Setanta, Clanna Gael Fontenoy and Whitehall Colmcille. Tipperary’s Clonakenny will be defending the trophy.
