This week is a huge week for football with the Seniors, Inters and Minor teams all in Championship action. First up on Wednesday the Inters take on Clann Mhuire out in Balgriffin with a throw in time of 8.15pm. The big game of the weekend pits our Seniors up against rivals Kilmacud Crokes in O’Toole Park on Saturday at 4.30pm.

This promises to be a titanic battle and with Cian O’Sullivan, Kevin Nolan, Paul Mannion and Rory O’Carroll for Crokes and Declan O’Mahony, Darragh Nelson and Michael McCauley for Boden, some stellar names will be on show.

Junior C  0-11 Wanderers 0-12
