The Academy Returns to full throttle on Saturday Morning so parking becomes an issue.The club policy is that no cars are permitted to enter inside the gates of Hyde park grounds for Health & Safety at the weekends or after 6pm weekdays.The gates shall be locked at the weekends and at 6pm on weekdays.The usual reminder about blocking access etc and showing respect to our neighbours.

Congratulations to the U12 Hurlers who landed their first county trophy on Saturday. Under the watchful eye of GAA President Christy Cooney at Parnell Park they beat Fingallians and then Lucan to lift the Division One Camaint Shield.

Congratulations too to the Under 13 girls camogie team (97s)who won the Division 3 Playoff last Tuesday evening. They played St Judes in the Phoenix Park and won 2-2 to 2-1.

Congratulations to every girl for a very brave display and well done to all the supporters on the night!

Well done too to the U14 footballers who recorded an impressive win against K.Crokes in the league with Con O’Callaghan in outstanding form.

Well done to the U15 footballers who beat Naomh Mearnog in the Championship.Support required for the U16 hurlers for Saturday’s championship game against Crokes in Silverpark at 3.30pm. It promises to be a spectacle from 2 very good teams.

Patrons are reminded that badminton restarts for adults on Monday at 8pm in the Hall.

Well done to the Minor A footballers who came out on top by two points in a hard fought encounter with St Brigids last Sunday morning in the championship. An impressive all round team performance with telling contributions from three Under 16 substitutes, Cian O’Callaghan, Colm Cronin and Ben Errity. They will be pushing for a stating place the next day. Minor B’s were less fortunate and lost away to Castleknock by three points in a keenly and closely fought contest.

Minor hurling championship this weekend at 11am in Shankill. All support welcome.

Two Big Adult Football championship matches this Sunday, JFC D Q /Final (3pm) Glencullen Stars of Erin vs Cuala . IFC 3.30PM O’Toole Park Cuala v St Margarets. Cuala will play in Croke Park! The Cuala Gaelic4Motherss have been selected to play in the half time Mini Games during the Ladies All Ireland final on Sept 26th next. Well done.

The Cuala lunch is confirmed for the Burlington Hotel on Friday 17th September.It will be hosted by our own Des Cahill with a special guest.It is a great achievement for our club to be able to continue with this event in the present economic climate. This is due to the great work of the members in selling and taking tables. If any patrons would like to go along as individuals let me know and we can see if we can rollup to create a few tables. It really is a great way to meet people and have a bit of crack too.

Coaching schedule for the next few weeks (cos I know you dont like attachments).

Note the special study evening for Junior Cert students on Tuesdays.
