Coach Keith a perfect fit for Tipp as boys bag big one

DUBLINER Keith Hennessy was the strength and conditioning coach for the Tipperary minor hurlers this season. His club is St Mary's of Saggart. He obviously did a solid job with that outstanding Tipp team as they beat the Dubs in the replay to win the All-Ireland.

NAOMH OLAF will be getting out the best china next Sunday to honour their Dublin minor football captain, Davy Byrne. Davy led the young Dubs to their first minor title since 1984.

'DUBLIN' GERRY was in jovial form in Parnell Park on Saturday evening. The game was held up because of an injury.

But Gerry quipped: "It's the first time I have seen a referee stop the game for the angelus."

FORMER class-mates at Coláiste Choilm in Swords, Adrian Henchy and Alan Hanrahan, will be rival managers in tonight's big Dublin IFC semi-final in Parnell Park. Adrian manages St Pat's of Donabate while Alan is in charge of Fingallians.

A LATE Tom Curran goal helped Round Tower's AFL 5 team secure promotion on the back of a 1-14 to 1-4 win over St Jude's in Tymon North on Sunday.

Leading by 0-6 to 0-2 at the interval, a strong second half showing will see them play AFL 4 next year and themselves and Raheny will compete for the AFL 4 title outright.

On a great day for the club, the club's third team secured the Sheridan Cup with a final win over Binn Eadair.
