Our hurlers had a very poor start to the Leinster championship. The good news is that they still won the game playing so poorly. No doubt nerves played a part in that performance. They now head to Wexford next Saturday evening for probably their most important game of the round robin. The winners have a great chance of making the All-Ireland quarter- finals in June. Dublin have a good record against Wexford in recent years. The Walsh Cup win of a few weeks ago should be forgotten as Wexford were very poor on the night. The following Sunday they defeated Limerick in the first round league game. The Dublin players know what is involved now and I feel they will turn in a wonderful performance and win a very close game.
Wexford will have massive support so hopefully The Dubs fans will travel in big numbers. We will be running buses as usual so get organised and make that text to book your seat. The details are:
Buses will leave Connolly St. at 1.10pm. They will pick up 1.30pm at bus stop no.2012- opposite Stillorgan Shopping Centre. There will be a stop in Gorey for refreshments. The return fare is 10 euro for members and 15 euro for non-members. Text your details to 0877205887 by 6pm on Thursday.
Remember to buy your tickets in advance.
Well done to our minor hurlers who had a great win over Kilkenny in Nowlan Park last Saturday. It’s not too often any team beats Kilkenny in Nowlan Park. Well done to manager Collie Maher and his team.
The Dublin minor camogie team had a good win over Wexford in the Leinster semi-final. Well done to John O’Connell and his team.
More good news: Two u-16 hurling teams played Wexford last Saturday in the Celtic Challenge tournament and Dublin Clarke had a good win and Dublin Plunkett last by a few goals. This Saturday they play in the Michael Foley tournament with one team playing Galway at 12 noon in O’Toole Park and the other team is away to Wexford.
Annual Golf Classic: We are only one month away from our !8th Annual Golf Classic at Castlewarden. So we hope to get lots of teams and tee-box sponsors. It is always a wonderful day. See attached poster for full details.
Have a good weekend and enjoy the trip to the sunny south east.
