Spate of thefts on matchday

MORE and more clubs are being targeted by thieves, who sweep in when the match is in progress to rob from the pavilion or from the cars.

Dublin GAA clubs have been hit. And now the warning has gone out to all. You cannot be too careful.

Clubs are being asked to securely lock their dressing-rooms and not to leave any valuables in cars.

Training nights are also a target when the thieves arrive under the cover of darkness. Putting in place extra security measures would help to stop them in their tracks.


ALL are welcome to the annual Dublin GAA mass in Parnell Park next Tuesday night, November 12 (7.30pm).

The occasion will remember all those that served at the Dublin GAA coalface, especially those that passed on this year.

Refreshments will be served. Bring the kids. They'll have a chance to get their picture taken with Sam.

The annual presentation to St Francis Hospice, Raheny will also be made.

The money raised comes from donations for the team-sheets on match-day at the venue.


TICKETS are moving quickly for the Strictly Kevin's Come Dancing spectacular on Saturday, November 16 at the The Palace, Camden Street (8pm).

Sixteen couples from the club will take part. Marty Morrissey is the MC for the big fund-raiser. For tickets, log onto www.kevins.ie


YOU can't beat the Dublin banter. Well-known Dublin follower, Dublin Gerry, met the Taoiseach recently.

Dublin Gerry told Enda to keep putting the Mayo on the salad, but the Dubs had the Spire and the Sam Maguire.
