FOUR club stalwarts - Shay Connolly, Eugene Davey, Frank White and Michael O'Kane - were honoured in a celebration, which took place in the clubhouse on Friday night. Special tribute was paid to each of them for all the dedicated work they have undertaken over the years for the club. The large numbers in attendance heard stories of club and inter-county games of days gone by; and even a song and guitar performance from the maestro that is Shay Connolly. Best wishes and hearty congratulations to each of them. Over the weekend, our intermediate footballers had an excellent win over Na Fianna in the league with a scoreline of 1-8 to 0-8. Our U15 footballers did not enjoy the same success however; they were most unfortunate to suffer a two-point defeat to St Finian's of Swords in their final league fixture before taking a well-earned rest for the summer weeks. With the break in competitive action, the focus moves to this year's Summer Camps, which get underway shortly. Packed with activities that include football and hurling skills, obstacle courses and fun games, this year's Camps will offer plenty for ages 4-12. The schedule is: Week 1; 20-24 July.

WELL done to our seniors, who defeated Laois on Saturday and now move on to play Limerick. We will post travel details on our website www.fodh.ie when the venue is decided. Even though the win was comprehensive, Dublin failed to put Laois away for a long time in spite of the fact that they were assisted by a strong wind. After the game, Dublin fans were asking why more balls weren't hit into the full-forward line, where Mark Schutte and Conal Keaney were in form. Mark got two goals in the first ten minutes from long-balls that were deliberately hit to him. He made the third goal with a wonderful pass to Conal Keaney. Dublin resorted to short passing in the second-half, when the ball should have been doing the work. Dublin will need to up their game if they want to progress to the quarter-finals. Hard luck on our minors, who played really well and were caught in the last two minutes. While defeat is never easy to take, this team has a good future and a few players will be in contention for places on the senior team before long. Our camogie team put up a great performance and fought back from an eight-point deficit to equalise with five minutes to go. Unfortunately, they could not get the winning point and Tipp broke down the field to get a point. Dublin are away to Clare and Derry now and need two wins to get into the quarter-finals. Congrats to Brian Gregg and Donal Murphy, who won two tickets each to the Dublin v Limerick game, plus free travel to the game on the FODH bus.
