Dulwich Harps

The ladies continued their winning ways with another convincing win against Tara’s in the first round of the league.

Despite the warm weather conditions they kept going and supporting each other until the final whistle. We hope that the girls will continue this winning streak this Saturday in the Tom O Connor Cup final when they take on St Anthony’s Reading. The game is scheduled to take place in Greenford at 11:00am.

The lads had no game this weekend and their next fixture will be against Moindearg in the second round of the McArdle Cup. This game is also due to take place in Greenford on Saturday but will be at the later time of 3:30pm.

Eire Og

Training:
Training for the intermediate and reserve teams continues this week at Park View Academy (N15 3QR) on Wednesday 3rd April at 7:30pm.

Results:
A thorough and clinical first half performance from Eire Óg laid the foundations for a well-deserved victory on Saturday afternoon in the preliminary round of the Intermediate Football Championship in McGovern Park, Ruislip.

Opponents Tir Chonaill Gaels were missing several regular players and gave a number of debuts to new recruits that will no doubt be a great experience for them ahead of their cup and league campaigns.

Early points from Caolan Conroy and some monstrous efforts from John Coyle gave Eire Óg a promising lead before Tir Chonaill Gaels answered back with two points from placed balls.

With Eire Óg beginning to get on top at midfield through captain Stephen O’Keeffe and wing backs Pat Tobin and Tony Fegan, the North London side capitalised by scoring 3 quick fire goals. Jason Boles dispatched the first before Ciaran McElhinney and Conroy added further goals to put Eire Óg into a comprehensive lead at half time.

Tir Chonaill Gaels came out fighting after the first half and added to their total within in the first 60 seconds of the second half. This was shortly followed by a goal from the penalty spot. John Coyle, who was making his debut, got Eire Óg back on the scoreboard with 2 glorious outside of the boot efforts

Jason Boles’ second goal seemed to be the icing on the cake as far as Eire Óg were concerned but a powerful finish into the Eire Óg net seconds before the end took a little bit of shine off the result.

Nevertheless, 4-18 of which 4-15 was from play was a superb days’ work for Eire Óg who gave 3 debuts to new recruits. Next up is a Murphy Cup clash vs St Brendan’s in Greenford on Saturday April 6th. Final Score: Eire Óg 4-18 Tir Chonaill Gaels 2-5

Upcoming Fixtures:
Mc Aleer and Rushe Murphy Cup Vs St Brendans in Greenford at 2pm on Saturday 6th April. After an opening day win vs CuChullains, the lads will look to move closer to a semi final position on Saturday afternoon.

Quiz Night:
Our first fundraiser of the year will take place on Saturday April 6th at the Sheephaven Bay, a short walk from Mornington Crescent station (NW1 7QD). We are hosting a Quiz Night which is bound to be a great social night for players and non-players alike.

Our Young Guns had a tough introduction to their new home of intermediate as they played Eire Og in glorious conditions on Saturday afternoon in Ruislip. A slow start from the Gaels saw Eire Og punish several sloppy mistakes as they raced into a insurmountable lead that left the half time score at 3-10 to 0-3.

A much better second half saw the Gaels up their game with 2 goals from Rory Jennings to help lift the spirits on what was otherwise a day to forget. Final score – Eire Og 4-18 TCG Intermediates 2-5.
