Fins all set for crack at Leinster

THE Flying Fins will have to take the High Road again. It won't worry them.

Next Saturday they'll travel to meet Sarsfields of Laois in the Leinster Senior Club Championship semi-final.

The Dublin champions are used to going the distance.

A couple of days after winning their first Dublin Senior Championship title, they found themselves in Louth for their opening Leinster test against the famous Cooley Kickhams.

The Dubs showed no sign of stiff bodies from their heroic deeds in Parnell Park. They put on a super show against Cooley.

The Sars got a bye to this stage. And like the Swords side, they too have completed the league and championship double.

They are a highly regarded outfit, and they have one of the finest footballers of them all, Tracey Lawlor.

But the girls from Lawless Memorial Park won't run out of petrol. They were involved in two enthralling county final championship games with Na Fianna.

Fingallians proved their fitness in both matches, and in the replay they were still sprinting at the end. Packie Barnwall and his colleagues couldn't have asked for more.


Home Grown Sevens: Congratulations to Na Fianna on winning the senior Cup in the All-Ireland Sevens, a fantastic achievement by the Glasnevin crew. Meanwhile, our commiseration to Castleknock and O'Tooles who both lost their respective Junior finals by the narrowest of margins. All in all it was a fantastic tournament for Dublin clubs with 18 teams from the capital participating. Well done to all involved. Images from the Sevens can be viewed on GAApics.com.

October County Board Meeting: The October meeting of the Dublin LGFA will take place on Tuesday October 15 at 7:30pm in Parnell Park. All clubs are requested to have a representative in attendance.
