A big win for our 2nd hurling team on Sunday afternoon in their league game. Many thanks to O'Dwyers for their very welcome hospitality enjoyed by the players, mentors and supporters after the game. The scheduled game for the 1st team was deferred due to the death of Dave Billings RIP. We extend our sincere condolences to the Billings family, St Vincents and UCD GAA. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dilis.
