BRAIN power needed. The senior footballers - who are going very well in AFL1 - have organised a table quiz fundraiser in the clubhouse for this coming Saturday evening. We would appeal to members to support this event as this team show tremendous dedication and fly the flag for the club at the highest level and remain very much in the hunt for both league and championship honours. It is also a great opportunity to get to meet and to know the players. The quiz (table of four) takes place at 8.30 in the club on Saturday. The senior hurlers have two big home matches this week and deserve your support: there is a SHC B encounter with Round Towers, Clondalkin in Broomfield on Wednesday evening (7.30pm) and an AHL3 league game against St Peregrine's on Saturday (6.30pm). Congratulations to Dublin ladies who confirmed their dominance in Leinster with a provincial final win over Laois and well done to the St Sylvester's contingent on their contributions. Well done to the two men's junior football teams who had good wins in their respective Championships. Application forms for the club's summer camps are available on the website - - with a comprehensive programme for juveniles, boys and girls, for the summer months. These camps are open to members and non-members.
