We are very encouraged with the enthusiasm shown from the junior hurlers this year. Numbers for training have been fantastic and we were delighted to be able to bring 23 boys from 5th, 4th & 3rd class to our first match.
What a game! We could not be prouder of our senior football team who lost in a titanic battle in Croke Park against St Patrick’s NS, Drumcondra. The score was an agonising 4-7 to 4-6.
Perhaps nerves had their part to play in the first half and we trailed by 10 points. This was the point where everyone could give up and surrender the match, however, the David’s boys went out and showed unbelievable heart and brought the score level with 5 minutes to play.
With seconds remaining and a point down, a goal chance from David’s was cleared off the line. It was not meant to be but every player could hold their head up high for the courage and determination they showed, particularly in the second half.
