Weekend round up
The build up to the start of the AFL continued last weekend with both the Seniors and Inters in action.
The Seniors faced Templeogue Synge Street out in IT Blanchardstown on a windy but thankfully dry
Saturday morning and took a while to get into their stride with a strong crosswind slightly favouring
the opposition. After a strong showing from TSS in the first half the lads finally found some rhythm
and finished strongly coming out winners by 3 points. It was especially heartening to see the young
lads stepping up to the plate in the absence of the County and injured players.
It was the Inters turn on Sunday evening as they entertained St.Jude’s in Sancta Maria.
With numbers low thanks to young minor player Liam Flaherty who stepped in to help out in a pacy
well contested match. The lads ran out winners by a few points. Well done to those who doubled up
and played both games for the club.
Congrats to our Dublin contingent Michael-Darragh, Declan and Darragh on their victory over
Westmeath by 0-14 to 1-07 in Mullingar on Sunday in the second round of the National League.
Unfortunately the Dublin Minors and our own lads Colm Basquel, Warren Egan, Shane Clayton
and Barra McGarry were pipped by Meath by a single point in their Leinster MFL clash in
Ashbourne on a scoreline of 1-11 to 0-13 despite Warren scoring 0-05 and Barra 0-02.
