It wasn’t to be for our adult hurlers and camogs this week-end, with all teams suffering losses. Our Junior G’s started the week-ends activities on Friday night against a strong Lucan Sarsfields side who had already beaten Na Fianna. This game ended 2-12 to 2-7 with some good hurling on show from our younger up and coming players who are transitioning from minor to adult level. Next game will be away to Clontarf on the 28th August. To follow the Junior G’s progress click on this link for the group tables.
On Sunday our Junior A’s hosted Commercials. Commercials piled on the pressure from the throw in with high levels of intensity, hooking and blocking at every opportunity. Despite trailing by 1-2 to 0-3 at the first water break, the game was very much in the mix. However, Commercials extended their lead at half time and again at the water break, eventually taking full points on a scoreline of 4-16 to 2-9. The next game is away to Skerries Harps on the 28th August. To follow the Junior A’s progress click on this link for the group tables and fixtures.

In GAA Rounders news our adult rounders teams have made history by qualifying for the All-Ireland semi finals. Our Mixed Intermediate team qualified after they beat Athenry of Galway in their last game. This places Kevins second in their group behind last years semi-finalists Cork, who were unbeaten. The other group was also decided over the week-end resulting in us being fixed against the famed Erne Eagles Rounders club of Cavan.

Our Junior Ladies team also qualified for the semi-finals after beating Castletown Liam Mellows in their last group game. This win puts them top of their group and they will play Carrickmacross Emmets of Monaghan in the semi-finals. This team is made up of a combination of existing camogie players and some girls who play softball which is proving to be a lethal combination so far. However, the semi-finals are fixed for the same day as the next camogie championship which will put us under a lot of pressure. In preparation of the semi-finals we will be playing the Dublin Metropolitans on Monday 22nd August in Loreto College.
