Well done to Des Dempsey and Keith Cullen for all their hard work in organising St. Martins sportive last Saturday. A fantastic event which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. Over 60 cyclists took on the 120 kilometre route approximately 45 went on the 40 kilometre route and about two million children did the 7 kilometre and the pitch cycle. The weather was brilliant and many thanks to all who helped out on the day raising funds for the hurling wall surface and the hospice.  Anyone with sponsorship cards please return them as soon as possible.

The juvenile boys played an absolute cracker of a match in the hurling county final in wexford park on Saturday against Taghmon.  It ended in a draw and even after extra time the teams could not be separated so they will have to do it all over again.. 

The U8 boys season came to a close with the annual trip to Waterford for the Charity Hurling Blitz in Roanmore. The boys played extremely well all day and did the club proud, finishing up unbeaten with two wins and a draw, the draw coming in a high quality encounter with the Rower/Inistioge. Well done to coaches and players. Full panel was: Leo Barry, Eoin Sinnott, Alfie Jeffers, Ben Larkin, Mark Hennessy, Jack Berry, Paul Coggins, Calum McClean.

The U12 boys host the Festival of hurling this Sunday with our great rivals from Naomh Eanna, Faythe Harriers and Glynn Barntown ensuring it should be a very good, keenly contested Blitz. Well done to the B team who have had a very good year reflected in their being graded against the U12 teams from Duffry Rovers, St Patrick's and Marshalstown in a Blitz to be hosted by the latter. As the only B team due to meet A teams next weekend this is a very fine reflection on the efforts of these boys through the year.

Our minors will play in the Premier Division Minor Hurling Semi Final against Glynn Barntown. The game is scheduled to take place on Saturdaynext, Sept 21st, starting at 1pm in Taghmon. The game schedule is subject to fixtures for adult teams however, so please check for confirmation of the game schedule."  

Very well done to our senior footballers who beat Adamstown in the quarter final on Saturday 
in Wexford park and will now play the Shelmaliers in the semi final.
Well done also to our camogie girls who took part in the Kilmacud sevens last Saturday and were beaten in the quarter final. Congrats to Lisa Bolger who won the wall ball competition.

Next Saturday is a big day for the camogie club with our juniors playing the co. final in St. Patricks park at 3.30. Please come along and support the girls in their efforts to join the intermediate ranks for next year.
