Famous names and Fabulous Football from U14s

THE pedigree runs deep in the boots of Kate McNally.

She is the daughter of Alan, and the niece of Joe.

The Nipper and Smokey could make the football sing and dance.

And Kate is also enjoying her time on the stage. She scored 1-3 for the Dublin U14s last Saturday.

They beat Meath by seven points, 6-10 to 5-6, in their opening Leinster Championship game at the home of Ballyboden St Enda's.

A big crowd showed up at Páirc Uí Mhurchú.

They saw a splendid duel.

Kate O'Connor hit two Dublin goals. Roisin McGovern did the same. Eimear Griffin also ruffled the Royal basket. Also in action for the Blues was Caitlin Guiden, the daughter of the former Dub, Niall.

He brought sharpness to his play. Caitlin does the same.

Jessica Connolly was also on duty. Her sister, Amy, played against Kerry on Sunday.

The young Dubs brought a sparkle to the turf. They don't lack quality.

Over 240 girls girls attended the trials, so to make the panel in itself is quite an achievement.

Fearghall Brennan is the manager. He'll plan now for the trip to Longford on March 15.
