All the focus is on football today with the senior team bidding to make it to their third Intermediate County Final in a row.  Na Fianna stand in the way at Parnell Park this evening at the start of what could be an epic five days and more for the club.  The final, should we make it will be on Wednesday 17th October and then the Junior Footballers have made it to their Championship as well.  Who is the top club in Dublin? We’ll just have to wait and see over the coming weeks.

David Treacy is on the cover of today’s Evening Herald GAA Pullout and there is great coverage throughout of the Southside Storm hitting Donnycarney on Sunday.

There is an article on Sport for Business about the challenges facing teams as they prepare for the business end of the club season and an alternative proposal which would avert the crazy congestion that our players have had to contend with this week.

Well done to Liam and Colin for putting together profiles of the Senior Hurlers.  If you want to know what they look like under the helmets, which of the team likes chips as a side order to their mashed potatoes and whose main pastime is keeping Tom Gough away from the fridge, you can check it all out here.

The lads will conduct their final training session at Hyde Road on Saturday morning and take time afterwards to spend some time with the players of the Academy.  Dreams of greatness begin right here.

We all will be a part of it and you can read more about the Festival of Juvenile hurling that will see all our teams in action against their Crokes rivals throughout Saturday and Sunday
