CHICAGO LAUNCH

Exciting things are on the way to Scoil! We are getting ready for our next big fundraising venture and what better way to find out about this exciting project than to join us in the Stag Bar this Thursday 29th March at 8:30pm. 

We will be launching the 'Oneness Gala' - an event that is set to take place in Chicago this coming September. To promote this exciting event, a video that encompases all that is special in our club will be previewed on the night. 

Join us for a night of craic and ceol and find out more about this great event!

All Welcome!

LET'S GET GEARED UP

It's fair to say that members of Scoil have always been a step ahead of the game in the fashion stakes thanks to our striking colours and unique jerseys. Now it's time to take our Scoil style to a whole new level. 

We have a large range of new Adidas gear on the way that is sure to make a lasting impression. Whether you're a player or a supporter there are plenty of new items to tickle your fancy! There will be a 'pop up' shop in the clubhouse on two seperate days to give you a chance to see the gear and place an order.


April 6th: 7-9pm & April 7th 11am-1pm

 

Note: This is a once off opportunity to order your gear so act fast! Online ordering will also be available on these days. The full range of gear will also be available to view at the Chicago Launch on Thursday night in the clubhouse.

Hurler and footballer. Recently broke my arm playing for the senior hurlers, making the comeback soon #TrustTheProcess

What was the funniest thing that has happened to you in Scoil?
Allegedly running into a goalpost, hence the broken arm. Allegedly.

What would you say you are most known for within Scoil? i.e. what do people associate you with?
It used to be ‘Mick Ryan’s little brother’, but I’d like to think I’ve outgrown that!

What has been your greatest Scoil moment / achievement?
Without doubt, being promoted to senior hurling for the first time in my lifetime last year. Hoping to replicate that this year and push for Division 1. Captaining the minor team in 2012 was also an enjoyable year!

Peter Morley surveying the lands before every match. Rain, hail, sleet or snow. What a man.

If you could make one addition to Scoil in any way, what would it be?
To extend the clubhouse out and have an indoor astro pitch.

UNDER 15 GIRLS 

v Na Fianna home 24/3/2018

Despite it being a such a high scoring game the girls came out the wrong end of this encounter. Na Fianna scored first and it was some time before we began to catch up on them. By half  time we had reduced the score  and were just a goal behind. As we usually play even better in the second half we were expecting the girls to go out all guns blazing but today it wasn’t to be as league winners Na Fianna added score after score and despite our best efforts we just couldn’t keep up. In any other game a score of 6 goals would have been a winning one but today it was not to be. Final score Na Fianna 8.5  Scoil 6.5. 

Our scorers were Isabelle, Siofra Holly Eve and Sadhbh P. Jody  and of course Lia made some wonderful saves. No games at the Easter break but we take on Round Towers on the 7th April in Clondalkin.
