Club Notes 26th March 2017
Well done to the AHL9 team who beat Na Fianna in River Valley on Sunday afternoon with two 2nd half goals from Adrian O'Keeffe being the crucial scores along with Conor Halpin and Peter O'Connor also in good scoring form. The backs had a clean sheet with James Quigley and Paul Burke very strong in central positions.
Hard luck to the AHL4 team who were narrowly beaten away to Lucan Sarsfields on Sunday morning.
The Thomas Ashe Minor Football team drew away to Good Council in a tough Division 4 league game.
Well done to the 8 girls from St Finians Under 15 LGFA Team who represented Loreto College Swords in their Leinster Final win on Friday. Grace Murray received player of the game and both Rachel Church and Rachel Fagan got some excellent scores.
Congratulations to Jonah Smartt who has recently completed a course of chemotherapy for a recent illness and who was one of the mascots leading the teams out in Croke Park at Saturday’s National League game between Dublin and Roscommon. Jonah’s mother Aoife is one of the Under 8s Boys team coaches and Jonah’s brothers Nathan & Noah also play for the Under 10s and Under 8s Boys teams respectively. Best wishes from all at St Finians GAA Club to Jonah for a full and speedy recovery.
