Great weekend for the McMeel's pharmacy sponsored Senior footballers who clinched the AFL2 title with two games to spare by defeating Ballinteer St.Johns 3-11 to 1-10 at a packed Skerries on sat night, and they will play in AFL1 for the first time in over fifty years next season, great achievement by all involved over many years of endeavour. Not to be outdone the AFL6 team beat St.Brigids to stay joint top of the division with one game to play.
During the week the Senior ladies footballers recorded two league wins and the Senior camogie team made it two wins in the C'Ship by defeating Ballyboden.
