Congratulations to our club's Dublin representatives who won at All Ireland's in Galway last weekend. 
  • Cormac Malone was part of the Dublin Grade D team
  • Keith Cahill & Krzysztof Sieczkowski were part of the Dublin Grade E team. 
After winning Grade C, D & E the Dublin teams travelled to NUIG Galway for the All Ireland Inter-County Final. Munster were represented in all three grades by Cork as were Connacht by Galway. The Dublin teams faced stern competition through-out the day. The Grade E team won their first match against Galway and went on to beat Cork in a finale which ended in a 2nd win for Dublin Grade E to crown them All Ireland Champions.

The Dublin Grade D team faced off against Galway at noon. They played very well, taking a 7-2 win through to a match versus Cork later that evening. The Cork team put up a great fight but the Dubs were clinical and went 6-1 ahead on games with no way back for Cork. This crowned the Dublin Grade D team All Ireland Inter-County Champions.

Dublin Grade C played Galway in their first match. They beat a strong Galway team taking a good lead into the Cork game. Cork fought well in their match against Dublin and took the win with a 5-4 margin. Dublin's earlier strength against Galway paid off and Dublin won Grade C All Ireland Inter-County on points.

It was a great day with plenty of close and exciting games. Dublin came out top of the pile with 3 wins from 3. Roll on the 2015/2016 season.
