All 3 teams had great victories over the weekend. We bounced back after defeats in 2 of our outings last time .
Our team in the 1 team group defeated St. Maurs by a comfortable margin. 29 - 10. The performance was a team effort and the boys are starting to put into practice what they are doing in training. The shill level has increased with us registering a lot of High Catches troughtout the game. While it was a team effort Barry Heneghan , Jack Higgins and Grellan Murray shone for us.

A hard fought game that Clontarf won by 3-8 to 1-10. Best for Clontarf Patrick Smith, Tom O'Flaherty, Cian Walsh, Sean O'Shea and Niall O'Hanlon

In the second march Oileann McKeown was strong in defense as usual, while Mathew Byrne and Mathew Jordan both did well. Tom Revenuy contributed most of the scores.
Red group played Ballymun at home, and recorded 1 win and 2 defeats, with overall points 54-69. In the first match, Clontarf dominated the game and won by double scores. A good overall team performance was built on a tight defence of Luke Hempanstall, Alex O'Reilly, and Rory Doran, and a mobile attack led by Danial O'Sullivan. In the second match, Clontarf battled well but lost by a single point. Darragh Nolan contributed most of the scores, while Finn McGarry and Timmy Sweeney did well. In the third match Clontarf played with a number of boys who were new or returning after a long absence. The team did not really get started and were well beaten.
