St Sylvester’s Club Notes

Hard luck to the Dublin senior footballers and U-21 hurlers who lost their All-Ireland semi-finals at the weekend.
With a display we would not have expected back in June, the Dubs were magnificent but just missed reaching our first All Ireland since 1995. We must thank them however, they brought the buzz back for all the little lads in blue around the real and only Capital, well done to you all. The U-21 hurlers put up a fine performance against Galway in Tullamore – a good year for Dublin hurling – not the big breakthrough but a steadily rising tide.
Well done to Dublin U-16 Ladies footballers who beat Kerry to be crowned All-Ireland champions. Club football championship re-commences this week with our senior team playing Oliver Plunkett’s in Parnell Park on Thursday night at 8.15pm while our intermediate footballers are in action against Naomh Barrog in Balgriffin next Saturday at 6pm (keep an eye on website http://www.stsylvesters.ie for any changes that might be made).
Support welcome for these games.
Summer camps are finished for this year, thanks to all who participated and to all the helpers. Congratulations to all the Leaving Cert students who received their results last week.

The U-16B football team lost their shield final to James’s Gaels by a wide margin. The break from competitive games was a real handicap and their performance suffered. Manager Pat Brennan continues to do brilliant work with this team.
The ladies’ football team suffered their first serious setback losing to St Margaret’s. They begin their championship campaign in two week’s time.
The U-16 hurlers put up a great performance against Ballyboden but lost despite showing great heart and spirit and a never say die attitude, attributes they gain from the example of manager Eddie McLoughney.
The U-12 hurlers took up the challenge of the U-13 PJ Troy trophy. They performed very well and won one, lost one and drew one. They are a competitive team of fine hurlers and will definitely make a big impact in this competition next year.
The Summer Hurling Academy begins next Monday, July 5 for ages ten to 15-year-olds. There will be top class coaching for the whole week. Anyone interested in participating in the camp, please mail sylshurlingcamp@hotmail.com.

St Sylvester’s Club Notes

We had two great wins for the adult hurlers in their opening league games of the season.  The intermediates withstood a second-half comeback from Kevin’s and secured the win with a late goal, while the juniors had a fine win at home to Crumlin.
Congratulations to the Dublin U-21 footballers on reaching the Leinster U-21 final in Parnell Park on Easter Sunday.
Many thanks to the Adult Games Committee for the adult medal presentation held in the Club last Tuesday, March 16. It was a great night of celebration.
The Under-16 hurlers lost out to Whitehall in a very entertaining and competitive match in Bridgefield on Saturday. The Under-15s won away to St Mark’s to record consecutive wins in their opening games.
The U-14 hurlers lost away to a physically stronger Finbar’s in their match. The U-12 football team continued on their winning ways with a big win over Castleknock in their final group game, with nine players contributing scores.
The Easter camp will be held from April 6 to April 8.

We had another great win for the senior footballers in the league over Trinity Gaels. The intermediates needed a goal from a last-minute penalty by the ice-cool Ciaran McArdle to beat Ballyboden.
There was disappointment for the juniors when no referee showed up in O’Toole’s. Our young minor hurling team (with only one 2nd year minor) lost to a stronger Faughs team in their first league game of the year. Martin Ormonde and Alan Morris starred for Fingal in their NHL win over Donegal.
The club hurling league games start next week with home games for both our teams.
The U-12s showed great improvement in their win over Kilmacud Crokes in division 1 hurling. It is a great achievement to be competing successfully at this level.
The senior ladies’ team had a fantastic quiz night last Friday and the club was packed to the rafters. Many thanks to all the organisers and sponsors.

Congratulations to Gary Sweeney and the Dubllin U-21 football team on their Leinster Championship win in Dundalk.
We had some mixed fortunes for the adult teams. In midweek the seniors travelled to Saggart for the semi-final of the 2009 Vincent de Paul and beat Mary’s to qualify for the final.
The intermediate hurlers lost their Cup game at home while the junior hurlers scored four goals in Clondalkin in a six-point win.
There was a good win in the cup for the intermediate footballers in the Naul and both junior teams have made it to the quarter-finals of their cup competitions.
Na Fianna proved too strong for our minor A football team while the minor Bs drew with Fingal Ravens.
The adult medal presentation night takes place on Tuesday, March 16 in the club.
At juvenile level, we had good wins for the U-14 and 15 hurlers. The U-16 hurlers put on a fantastic display to defeat Lucan in Division 1. The standard of hurling was of the highest quality and a real treat for the home supporters.
Give your mother a St Sylvester’s gift card and enjoy traditional music in the club on Friday night. The legendary Joe Fortune plays his eclectic set on Saturday.
