Dicksboro GAA Club

PACKED - The club was packed on Sunday morning with juvenile teams from Clonmel (St Mary's) and Dublin (Howth) in the city for the national hurling league semi-finals. They had a wonderful day out and all the visitors were impressed with the hospitality and the facilities. The new clubhouse is and will continue to be a huge success. Well done to John Treacy and everyone else involved.

INTERMEDIATE FINAL - With Cillian Starr, Davy Ryan, Murt Gaffney, Aaron Duggan and Cillian Buckley along with a number of other doubtful starters, unable to tog put on Saturday in the intermediate football final against overwhelming favourites, Danesfort, the boys will be up against it.The match is at 5pm in Nowlan Park. The last time we won the title was in 1991 and it led to a period of unprecedented success in the Boro.

Every able bodied member of the club should consider it an honour not a burden to tog out for any club team be it rounders, hurling or football or the quiz team and don't be worried about those telling ye its only football and ye might get injured, the sea air in Ballybunion will cure anything.

STEPHEN KENNEDY - Former Boro hurler and footballer Stephen Kennedy got in touch to say best of luck Saturday in the football final. He said he is the proud holder of an intermediate football medal from 1991. "We beat Conahy in a replay to secure Intermediate hurling and football double and followed it up with the U-21 double a month or two later. Oh to be young again," he said

JUNIORS - The junior team suffered defeat at the hands of Mount Leinster Rangers, Carlow on Saturday night at a windy and chilly Palmerstown. The deficit was three points but might have been worse but for good defending and goalie, Cillian Breathnach. Mount Leinster Rangers were that bit sharper, having playeda number of games in recent weeks, and most of the team are dual players who play football every week as well. The Boro didn't want for heart but were always chasing the game and... were always a few points behind.Worryingly, Davy Ryan who was having a good game seemed to pick up a serious leg injury.With 14 minutes remaining, Shane O'Brien, who had a great match, put over a free to leave just a point between the teams. However, that was as good as it got for the Boro men. The Rangers came back strongly with two unanswered points and it finished 1-12 to 0-12.

Marco Russo went off near the end after scoring two great points.Another Boro star, Michael Rafter got the opening point but then disaster struck with Rangers getting a goal followed by three unanswered points. Boro fought back well and were 1-4 to 0-4 behind after 22 minutes. Half time score; 1-6 to 0-6.

Team: C Breathnach, P Dunne, P Hogan, J Gittens, J Waters, M Hayes, R Glynn, K Nolan, M Rafter (0-2), D Ryan (0-1), M Russo (0-2), D O'Gorman, D Holohan, A Stapleton (0-1), S O'Brien (0-6). . Subs: T Manning for Ryan; Enda O'Donoghue.

UNDER 16 - Despite being missing six regulars the under-16s put up a wonderful fight against Naas in the county league. Naas were worthy of their win and had a good few supporters out in Palmerstown.
