Davey drives Jackies home

JOB done. Dublin safely into the Tesco Homegrown Division 1 League semi-final.

Still unbeaten. Sunday's win in Tyrone was their fourth of the campaign. Two draws came against the heavyweights, Monaghan and Cork.

Lyndsey Davey produced a four-card trick. It's not every day you come home with four goals in the lunch-box.

The Harp of Skerries is one of the sweetest finishers in the business.

The Jackies conclude their pool matches when they host Laois next Sunday. The counties have had some terrific debates over the years, especially in the Leinster Championship.

And at the heart of most of them was Tracey Lawlor, one of the best women footballers to have ever laced a pair of boots.

Her energy levels and class on the ball has so enhanced the sport over the years. The young Laois Lions never had to look far for inspiration.

Laois made the league semi-finals last year. They will miss out this time. Gregory's Girls will want to maintain that unbeaten record.

BOARD NOTES

Leinster Championship: Congratulations to our U16 team who enjoyed a comfortable win over Laois in the Leinster Championship last Saturday. Unfortunately the U14 match, also against Laois, was abandoned due to an injury to Laois player Megan Walsh. Everyone involved in Dublin LGFA would like to wish Megan a speedy recovery from her injury and hope she is back playing football soon.

Dublin LGFA would like to thank Parnell's GAA club for their hospitality on Saturday last and for their assistance with hosting both Leinster Championship fixtures.

Both the U14 and U16 panels are in championship action again this weekend v Meath; dates, times, venue to be confirmed.

Tesco Homegrown NFL: Dublin travelled to Tyrone on Sunday and came away with an impressive 4-19 to 0-9 win over the home side. This Sunday, Dublin welcome Laois to the capital for the final round of league fixtures having already qualified for the Division 1 semi-final. Dublin versus Laois will take place at Naomh Mearnóg GAA club in Portmarnock, with a 2.0pm throw in.
