Our minor hurling team take on Galway on Saturday next at 3pm in Croke Park in the all-Ireland semi final. Our young team had a very impressive win over Kilkenny in the Leinster final. Galway had two impressive performances over Limerick and Kilkenny in the past few weeks. They will also have big support as their senior team play Clare at 5pm. In our monthly members draw Brian Kavanagh and Paraic O’Tuathail were first out and they will receive two tickets each for Croke Park on Saturday so that they can cheer on our minors. It has been a busy weekend on the camogie front with wins for the Premier Junios and U16 B’S in their respective championships. Our senior team played a draw against Tipp and thereby qualified for the All-Ireland quarter final against Galway at Pairc Uí Chaoimh on Saturday August 4. This game will be televised live on RTE 2. Dublin were unlucky to lose Miriam Twomey with an injury in the first minute. It was an outstanding game watched by an unusually big crowd. Dublin have three wins, one draw and one defeat from their round robin games and are getting closer and closer to the top teams. Well done to David Herity and his players and his management team.
