Well done to our hurlers who had a good win over Offaly in Tullamore on Sunday. Oisin O’Rorke gets our man of the match award. Their next outing now is away to Galway in two weeks time. We will run buses to that game. The Dublin senior camogie team picked up a point when they drew with Offaly at Parnells yesterday. They are at home to Limerick in two weeks time and a good result is required.
Congrats to current Leinster champions, Dublin North, who defeated Good Counsel in the quarter final last week. They now play the famed St. Kierans College in the semi- final on Wednesday February 13th. The venue has yet to be decided. Coláiste Eoin play Kilkenny CBS in the other semi-final and venue and time not finalised yet. It is a sign of the strength of Dublin Hurling that they have two teams in the semi-finals. Well done to all involved- players, teachers, parents and clubs. Good luck to both teams.
We are now at the quarter final stage and DCU are at home to DIT on Thursday at 7.30pm. DCU have a star studded team and will expect to progress. DIT, who are managed by David Herity, will be well up for it and they have their own stars in Eamon Dillon, Eoin Dunne, David Keogh, Glen Whelan, Darren Kelly and Patrick Bonner Maher. In the other quarter finals, UCC play IT Carlow, LIT play NUIG, and Mary I play CIT.
Fodh Annual General Meeting.
We will hold our AGM at Parnell Park on Tuesday February 12th starting at 7.30pm. We badly need some new blood on our committee and we would dearly like to see you at the meeting.
Finally, a reminder that St. Thomas’s play Cushendall at 3pm in Parnell Park next Saturday in the All-Ireland club semi-final. The other semi- final between Ballygunner and Ballyhale Shamrocks is on at 5pm in Thurles. Both games are live on TG4.
