Friends to tee off Golf Classic

THE Friends of Dublin Hurling will have their big tee-off on Thursday, May 24 at the Castlewarden Golf and Country Club.

It's the seventh annual FODH Classic, and it's proving harder and harder to win that elusive blue jacket.

There are some cracking golfers among the Dublin hurling family, and Michael O'Grady and company promise another good day out.

A team of four costs €400. Tee box sponsorship is €200.

There's a special prize of €500 worth of hurleys and sliotars for the best club entry.

To enter the Golf Classic, phone 087-2331983 or 087-9783735. Or email fodh@eircom.net

Whelo tops charlie

CHARLIE and Whelo had a date out by the seaside on Sunday morning.

It was Ciarán Whelan's Raheny who went home with the 99s. They beat Redmond's Harps, 0-11 to 0-9, in Division 2 of the AFL.

"The game turned out to be a classic," reported Seosamh Mac Aonghusa. "It was our first home defeat of the season.

"We dominated for three quarters of the way, but we just couldn't put Raheny away. They took their chances.

"Raheny hung in and they came good when it really mattered," added Seosamh.

Féile draw looming

THE National Féile na nGael draw takes place this Thursday in Parnell Park (7.30pm) - the Dublin draw is tonight (8pm). It will be standing room only.

Over 140 teams will be drawn out of the hat. Heads down, pencilled sharpened.

On May 15, the National Féile Skills competition will be hosted in Parnell Park. Noel Brady has the lawn looking like the greens at Augusta.

On May 24, there will be the schools visits. The new boss, Liam O'Neill, will be in the delegation. No homework that day. Later that evening, the official Féile launch will also take place. The following day, May 25, Parnell Park will stage the Camogie Skills tournament.

And the Féile itself will roll into town on July 5, 6 and 7. It promises to be some carnival.

In the meantime, local knowledge proved useful for Tom Mouldey in last week's Féile quiz. The answer to the handball question was his St Brigid's club mate, Eoin Kennedy.

This week's question reads: 'Who won the National Camogie Division 4 league last Sunday'?
