Senior vs Templeogue/Synge Street

Camogie Feile Report

Feile Report There are some days when there is simply nothing better on earth than being in Ballyboden. Last Saturday, April 28th was one of those days.

Junior A vs Skerries Harps

Result: 0-10 to 1-10 The JAs gave their all in a great encounter against Skerries Harps in Pairc Ui Murchu on Sunday. Although we came up short, I couldn’t be prouder of this group of Men. Skerries are an Intermediate team and were lucky I guess to be heading back over the M50 with the…

Intermediate vs St. Oliver Plunketts/Eoghan Ruadh

Result: 5-14 to 0-08 A very workmanlike performance by the Ballyboden St. Enda’s intermediate football team saw off a spirited Oliver Plunkett’s team at Páirc Uí Mhurchú last Saturday evening.

Senior vs Clontarf

Result: 0-11 to 0-10 A barnstorming final quarter helped Ballyboden overcome Clontarf by the narrowest of margins in the opening round of the Dublin Senior Football Championship at O’Toole Park.

Minor B vs St. Brigid’s

Result: 3-06 to 3-07 This was very much a game of two halves in Ballycullen.

They did manage to score two points despite these obstacles. A quick…

Junior A vs Ballymun Kickhams

To travel across the M50 and come away with a victory over a tough Ballymun side is no mean feat. Numbers were extremely tight, the starting fifteen and four subs.

Intermediate vs Man-o-War

The third match of the intermediate football team’s league campaign was eagerly awaited after an extended break for the St. Patrick’s weekend. The visitors on this occasion to Ballycullen were the intriguingly named Man O’War  from the county’s northern heartland. Apparently it’s derived from Mean Bharr “or middle height” but we’ll let the reader do some…

Senior vs Na Fianna

This trip to Mobhi Road was never going to be easy in view of the aftermath of our championship match against the same opposition last year, and so it proved. Na Fianna scored first after two minutes but Ross McGarry quickly pointed to equalise. Both defences were on top with scores hard to come by….

Minor D vs Ballinteer St. Johns

A tough task for the lads on a cold windy day on the all weather in ballinteer. The home team started well reeling off 5 points without reply. Boden dug in and started to convert a few chances off their own with jack larkin scoring a penalty to level proceedings. the game ebbed and flowed…

Minor B vs Templeogue/Synge Street

Junior A vs Thomas Davis

Result: 3-09 to 3-13 Someone put it to me that this was the best performance from a losing side he had seen. Boden dominated for fifty minutes and lost our shape in the final ten. However, what I am seeing is progress each week and I have no doubt that the wins will come. This…

Intermediate vs Trinity Gaels

Result: 1-09 to 0-12 A dreary damp morning in Drumnigh was the welcome for the Boden Intermediate football team.

Junior B vs St. Oliver Plunketts/Eoghan Ruadh

Result: 0-04 to 3-10 Bodens Junior Bs got off to the worst possible start with a heavy defeat to a slick and fast moving Plunkets side in Ballycullen on a dry but windy morning.

Under 21B vs St. Margarets

Result: 1-08 to 2-12 It was a bruising encounter for our u21b team in Pairc Ui Mhurchú against last year’s champions St. Margaret’s. We got off to a slow start with Margaret’s notching 2-04 without reply after 15 mins. We slowly worked our way into the match and scored 3 pts in a row. We…

U16 Football ‘A’ Championship Round 2 match report

Delighted to see the chaps line out against a rather gruf, St. Vincents side in PUM on Saturday last. “Fortuna audaces juvat “, I said to the charming lady beside me. “Wha?”, she barked. “Fortune favours the bold”, I said, in full knowledge that my Latin education is really wasted on you GAA types. The Bollybodon…

Junior B vs Clontarf
