At long last the reign of Pat Gilroy as Dublin hurling manager takes off in earnest next Saturday with the league opener versus Offaly at Croke Park. This is game Dublin need to win as some very tough games lay ahead against Limerick and Galway. The top four teams make the quarter finals so every point counts. You can purchase your ticket up to Friday for €12. It will cost €15 on Saturday. Fodh 2018 members can park in O’Connells Schools car park fore €5 before 5pm. You can also renew your membership at the gate to the car park. Thanks to all those who signed up as members at the Wexford game recently. We were delighted with the response. Good luck to all Dublin College teams who are now competing in the Ashbourne and Fitzgibbon cups. Hard luck to our camogie team who were defeated by Kilkenny last Sunday at Parnells GAA Club all weather pitch.
