WELL done to our hurlers on a great win over Limerick at Thurles on Saturday last. It didn't look too good when they trailed by eight points at one stage in the first half. But the comeback started then and good team work led to the lead being reduced to four points at half-time. In the second half, Paul Ryan gave an exhibition of point-taking from all sides of the field. Six points from play and six points from frees is a great return and is the reason why Dublin won the game. Well done to the supporters who travelled. We had two buses and they all really enjoyed the day. Well done to Paul Ryan, who was our Man of the Match. We now look forward to meeting Waterford and hopefully Peter Kelly may be fit to play. Well done to the Dublin senior camogie team, who got a valuable draw against Clare in Newmarket on Fergus. They need a win now against Derry in Derry next Saturday.

THANK you to all who helped out at the Camogie Blitz on Saturday. With almost 40 teams, this was a major event and it ran very smoothly. Well done to club players Sophie Brennan, Aoibheann Crean Lynch and Leah Ford, who represented Dublin in the Tournament. Well done also to Aoibhe Dillon, Sarah Brennan and Lauren Delaney, who were part of the Dublin U16 Camogie Squad at the weekend. Our senior footballers are back in action on Saturday evening with a vital home game against Skerries at 6.30pm. Our AFL5 team is away on Sunday morning against St Maur's. Support for our teams remains disappointingly low, especially for home games. Come on folks, get behind our teams, they deserve it. It was a great week for our adult hurlers. The seniors defeated Thomas Davis in the Championship and St Sylvester's in the league, while the juniors overcame Setanta in the Championship and Wild Geese in the league. Both teams have now reached the knockout stages of their Championships, with the juniors unbeaten in the league. Congratulations to all concerned. Well done to the Dublin footballers on retaining the Leinster title and to the hurlers on reaching the quarter-final.
