*With lots of matches postponed due to bad weather it was nice to see some
game go ahead on Saturday. A big ‘Thanks’ to the mentors, parents and
players for their commitment to the sport.*

What a great start to season our U16 hurlers had on Saturday. The lads
travelled over to St. Anne’s in Tallaght for the first game of the season.
The weather was appalling, with winds gusting and swirling at an immense
pace. It was by no means an easy game, one for one scoring at times, but
our brave lads ploughed on and in the end held out for a five-point win. It
was a great team effort with our points and goals coming from many players.
Well done to all the lads but especially young Adam in defence.

*Our U12 boys teams did super jobs over their three football grading games,
winning two of them vs Bray & Skerries (what a result) respectfully, just
losing narrowly to Castleknock. Great games to watch, again in atrocious
weather. *

It was a proud day for some young girls from St Paul’s national school when
they showed off their playing skills at half time during the Dublin match
on Saturday. There was at least one of our girls on the team, young Jodie
Byrne. And very well she played.

*The big boy leagues start in earnest this weekend with our senior
footballers taking on the might of St Margaret’s here in O’Toole’s at 10:30
on Sunday morning. It would be great to see a packed side-line to get the
lads all fired up for the season ahead. *
