Club Results

Following on from their great win over St. Brigid’s last weekend, the U11’s made it 2 wins out of 2 when they turned in another magnificent performance against Clontarf on Saturday. Click here for a detailed match report. The U12’s 2 team continued their winning ways also with a great win against Clanna Gael. The 1 team game against Templeogue was postponed due to rain. The U13’s were unlucky to lose by 2 points to a very strong Castleknock team. The U14’s had a tough battle against Ballyboughal but they managed to hold on and win by 8 points.  The U16’s had a huge win over St. Peters and this win sees them top of their group. 

County team results

Well done to the Dublin U14, Minor and Senior teams on their victories over the weekend.  The FoxCab players played pivotal roles in all these victories.  It was particularly pleasing to see 4 FoxCab players – Sinead Goldrick, Niamh Collins, Amy Connolly and Hannah Noonan - start for the Dublin Senior team against Tyrone and it was even more pleasant to see Hannah (1-01), Amy (0-03) and Sinead (0-01) on the score sheet. The Dublin senior team have a very tough game next weekend in the last round of the National League when they have an away game against Cork.  They need to win to be in with a chance of making it to the National League semi-final. Best of luck!

Senior Cup

The senior team start the defence of their Division 1 Cup title on Wednesday (April 1st) with a tricky home game against Ballyboden.  Throw in is at 6:30.  The division 5 team start their cup campaign when they travel to play Thomas Davis also on Wednesday.

Table Quiz

The “Gaelic 4 Mothers & Others” squad are holding a table quiz in The Grange Pub on Thursday April 16th at 8:30. A great night’s entertainment is assured and your support would be appreciated.

Results

The re-fixed U14 game against Ballyboden took place on Friday evening and the team turned in a magnificent performance to win by 4-11 to 3-5.  The Minor A teams and U16 teams also had good victories over the weekend with the Minors overcoming Ballyboden and the U16’s  beating St. Sylvesters. The Minor B team were unlucky to lose to a very good Man O Warm team and a last minute goal by Na Fianna saw the U13’s missing out on a victory.

Well done to our Minor division 1 and U15 division 1 teams who started off their league campaigns with victories over Na Fianna and Erin’s Isle respectively.
