Adult games
The junior footballers travelled to Oldtown on Sunday morning for a league game v Wild Geese.  This was always going to be a tough fixture as the opposition are top of the league but the lads came very close to an upset losing out by a goal.  Next game is on 5th Oct v Liffey Gaels.

Next Sunday is a very important one for the adult hurlers with a league game v Lucan Sarsfields.   Your support would be appreciated for this game in Clontarf at 10.30am

The minor hurlers lost out to St Maurs in the championship on Sunday. Then on Monday, the Minor Girls were very unlucky to lose out be a point in their championship game v Cuala A.

Support as always is very welcome!

Scoil footballers v Skerries Harps on Saturday. Brilliant effort put in by all the kids.

Very very proud of them all.... Hard as Teak! Up Scoil! !
