Well done to the McMeels sponsored Senior Footballers who defeated Whitehall Colmcilles in AFL 2 on Sat 16th April. Good win also recorded for our Junior Team VS St Vincents with a score line of 2-15 to 6pts. Hard luck to the Moriarty's Supervalu sponsored U14 Hurlers who narrowly lost out in the group stages of Division 3 Feile and to the Division 7 U14 hurlers who travelled to Cuala for the group stages. Both panels gave a great representation of themselves on the field of play. Thanks also to all who assisted with the hosting of the Division 3 Feile in Skerries yesterday. 

Hard luck to Eoin Smith & Donal McIlgorm with the Dublin U21's who lost out to Mayo in the All-Ireland Semi-Final yesterday by the narrowest of margins. Congrats to our U15 Camogie team who defeated Na Fianna 3-6 to 1-4 this morning.
