Aug. 5 – A huge logistical operation brings 255 boys and girls to Somerton for a week of All-Ireland competition with 107 games played under the control of 18 referees. It was a great success in the run-in to the All-Ireland Finals with enormous thanks to the chief organisers Neil Devin, Jason Sweeney, Gerry O’Connor and GPO Maria Bergin.

Aug. 6 – With the MFC just around the corner, thanks to Donaghmore/Ashbourne, Meath Minor League Champions, for hosting a super challenge match against our Minor Footballers which we won 4-14 4-12 having been level 1-4 each at half-time.

Aug. 7 – The Ladies footballers suffer a disappointing 2-point defeat, 2-14 3-13, to Ranelagh Gaels in the Adult Cup Div.5 Semi-Final beaten by a very late and very contentious goal.

Aug.10 – A hugely entertaining 7-4 6-7 draw for Castleknock against Ballinteer in the Ladies U-15 Summer Football Group C. A second-half Ciarán Kilkenny masterclass helps Dublin beat Mayo and reach yet another All-Ireland Football Final.

Aug.11 – The AHL3 match put back from Saturday evening ends in a 3-17 1-13 win for Castleknock over St. Mark’s. The AHL6 team are crowned DIVISION 6 CHAMPIONS after an impressive 5-21 0-5 win over Crumlin. Rob Wylie received the Div.6 Cup on behalf of the players who have given us so much to enjoy throughout the Summer. Congrats to everyone involved.
