Very disappointing news of Pat Gilroy’s decision to stand down due to work commitments. He had done so much in one year and 2019 couldn’t come fast enough. Only for a bad referee’s call in Parnell Park last May Dublin would have been in the quarter finals and who knows what would have happened then. We wish Pat well and hopefully the Board will find a suitable replacement. We look forward to our championship quarter finals this weekend. On Friday at Parnell Park St. Vincents play Na Fianna at 6.45 and this game will be followed by Ballyboden St,. Endas v St. John’s Balinteer. On Sunday at Parnell Park Kilmacud Crokes play St. Judes at 2.15 and Cuala play Lucan Sarsfields after that at 4pm.Congrats to captain Chris Crummey who is Dublin’s only All Star nomination.The camogie championships are up and running now.
