1984 Match Replay!


We have managed to get our hands on a copy of the video of that famous Junior Championship victory over Calry played in Ballymote on September 23rd 1984. It is now converted to DVD format and all those attending the dinner dance have an opportunity to view the game in the hotel on the evening of the function at 6.45pm. This should indeed make for an interesting hour’s entertainment and a nostalgic look back.


Dublin County Medal:


Congratulations to former club player Daniel Davey who won a Dublin Senior County Club Championship medal with Ballyboden/St. Endas last Sunday. Daniel notched two points for the boys in blue and white in a thrilling game played at Parnell Park.
