Club Notes - 201602

Email issues

Last week we were having problems sending email from this account so the notes weren't sent to all members.  It appears that Hotmail though this account was sending junk email - the cheek of them!! - so they reduced the number of emails that this account could send. The issue has been sorted and "normal service" has been resumed.  In the unlikely event of this happening again, members should keep an eye our website for the weekly notes.  

Intercounty and Post Primary Schools update

Well done to the Dublin Minor and U14 teams who had great wins in the Leinster Championship this weekend. The Dublin minor team – captained by our own Tarah O’Sullivan – had a hard fought win in the second round of the Leinster Championship against Wexford.  Hannah O’Neill made a big impact when she was introduced. Dublin play Offaly in the next round.

Sarah O’Leary and Aisling O’Kelly were members of the Dublin U14 team who had a very tough opener against Meath in the Leinster championship.  Dublin won by 3-10 (19) to 5-2 (17) and gained some revenge for last year’s Leinster final when Meath surprisingly defeated Dublin.  There’s still a long way to go in the competition and we’re sure that these teams will meet again.

Congrats to Tarah O’Sullivan and Afric Whelan who were part of the Colaiste Iosagain team who had a fantastic win over Glenamaddy in the Post Primary Schools A All-Ireland semi-final on Saturday.  They will play Scoil Muire from Carrick-On-Suir in the final.

Gaelic 4 Mothers go International

Best of luck to our Gaelic 4 Months team who are travelling to Brussels this weekend to play Croabh Rua Belgium Ladies Gaelic Team.  We’re looking forward to a match report when the team get back.

U10’s (2006) match report

The U10s had another great challenge match on Saturday (20/02) when they played away against Bray Emmets.  Two teams of 9 represented FoxCab in two matches apiece against a strong opposition. The rain and near gale force winds did not dampen their spirits and the girls had to work hard in difficult conditions.  The girls rotated positions each half and everybody played back, midfield and forward.  It was great to see a high level of teamwork together with some great hand and kick passing skills on display.

Our newest team member, Ella Carey put on a great display of catching skill and speed to the ball, particularly as it was her first game with the U10s.

Despite the wet and cold weather everybody; players, parents and mentors were in high spirits after the game.  Many thanks to all of the parents for your continuing support in helping to set up the pitch, running warm up drills and helping with jersey washing.

League season starts next weekend

Next weekend sees the start of the season for all teams.  Best of luck to all!

Sympathy

The club extends its sympathy to club players Jodi (U16) and Molly (U12) Egan and their parents Johnny and Aisling Egan on the death of Johnny’s father last week. May he rest in peace.

2015 U16 division 4 league final

Commiserations to last year’s U16 team who lost out to a very strong St. Anne’s team in the 2015 division 4 league final which was played last weekend. 

U10 Match Report

The U10s had a great start to their playing session on Saturday when the girls put on a great display of skill, determination and enthusiasm in a challenge fixture away against St. Jude's.  Two teams of 11 represented FoxCab in two matches apiece against a strong opposition. Both teams battled hard and there were some great scores, both goals and points. However, the FoxCab girls showed a more lively pace and better accuracy on target.

Condolences

The club extends its condolences to U13 player Grace Power on the death of her grandfather Timothy O’Neill who passed away on Friday in Killarney, Co. Kerry. May he Rest In Peace.

County Scene

Well done to the Dublin Ladies Senior Team who resumed their winning ways with a fantastic win over Monaghan in round 3 of the National League.

Unfortunately, the weather scuppered the resumption of the Academy on Saturday. All going well, it will resume this Saturday. Keep an eye on the Academy Facebook page during the week for updates.
