ON the pitch it was an indifferent weekend for our 3 juvenile teams. The U16 Thomas Ashe team went down to O'Dwyers, an under-strength U14s went down to Thomas Davis & the U13s had a good win against St Maur's. The good news, despite the two defeats, is that the U14s & U16s have both qualified for league semi-finals & the U13s are all but guaranteed a play-off place for their league. Despite what happens for the rest of the year it has been another exceptional year for the juvenile club to have 3 teams to still be challenging for honours at the business end of the season. The minor Thomas Ashe footballers had another great Championship win, this time by 5 points against St Brigid's. Well done lads and keep it going.

GIRL power ruled last weekend when our U13s and U10 girls had two fantastic wins. The U13s defeated Ballymun Kickhams in their Shield Final, while the U10s won a Leinster Blitz hosted by Clontarf. Congrats to everyone involved in this our first year back in girls football after a long time away from it. The St Mary's Book "100 Years or So" celebrating the history of the club and its involvement in the locality, will be officially launched on Saturday November 1st in the clubhouse. Special guest will be Micheal O'Muircheartaigh.

Copies of the book will cost €20 each and can be pre-ordered by personal message to Facebook (Gfc St Marys), Twitter (@StMarysSaggart), email email@example.com or by text to club phone 086-8199331.

TEAM of the week award goes to our girls' U17 team. The Monettes battled back from being 10 points down against Naomh Mearnog to finish the game as 2 point winners, blitzing the Portmarnock side in the final-quarter of the game. Both sides will meet again in the U17 County Shield Final on Saturday October 25th. Congrats also to our boys' U13 team, who travelled to Dalkey on Saturday and came away with a 5-09 to 3-05 win. This was a fantastic on the road victory, well done to all the players and their management team. Our U10 G4G had a great time playing in the Leinster Blitz on Saturday, which was hosted in style by Clontarf GAA Club. Many thanks to all the organisers.

ST PATRICK'S, DONABATE
OUR Lotto Jackpot continues to rollover. It's reached €7,300 now. The numbers drawn were 1-8-10-18. The five €20 winners were Terry Halpin, Joe Duignan, M Fitzgerald, Rose Duignan and Erin McGahan. Following a hard week's work, we have to give huge thanks to our Grounds Committee who - along with the new electrical contractor - put in trojan work to get the storm damage to the floodlights fixed so we could re-open the grounds by Saturday morning. Most of the labours done by this hard-working committee go unheeded but this week. All our eyes were opened to the work necessary to keep Ballymastone open and running. Thanks guys - we're very grateful. Elsewhere, on the pitch we had some wonderful wins. Our stout-hearted U13 boys beat St Jude's 5-07 to 4-08 to join Cuala at the top of their league. Our intrepid U14 boys beat Fingal Ravens 9-18 to 2-03 in Rolestown to secure their place in the league semi-finals, while our valiant minors beat Naomh Olaf 2-11 to 1-12. Meanwhile, our Juvenile Girls Section is going from strength-to-strength. Although the older girls had a week off, our U9s had to play against two clubs this weekend just so that their three squads could all get a run-out. Congrats to the girls and their mentors for a really great display of skill and sociability. They're gelling together so well and are very much looking forward to heading into the structured games of U10s footie. This year Donabate Community College are fielding U13, U14, U16 and U18 boys teams and U14, U16 and U18 girls teams. The U14 boys played their first game on Friday and join the other squads in being unbeaten this year. This is a great reflection on the depth of strength in our Juvenile Section.
THIS week's Lotto was not won. The numbers drawn were 10, 16, 17 & 22. Next week's Jackpot is €6,000. Well done to the inter hurlers on a dominant win over Naomh Barrog. They now play Setanta on Saturday at 5 in Poppintree to qualify for the Leinster Intermediate Championship. Minor footballers had a good win against Clontarf in the Championship to keep them in contention. Junior hurlers avoided relegation despite losing their final game to Erin go Bragh. Well done in particular to the 8 minors that played both games, one after the other. Congratulation to the Junior Bs, who have reached the promotion play-offs with 1 game still to play.

THE club enjoyed its own version of Super Sunday, as the U15 footballers reached the Final of the A Championship with a win over Naomh Mearnog and the Bs made it a double with a Shield semi-final win over Whitehall Colmcilles. Well done to all concerned with two Finals in the one age group now to look forward to. Both minor football teams also had good Championship wins, with the As beating Scoil Ui Chonaill to remain on track for a semi-final place; while the AHL6 junior hurlers maintained the winning trend with a good win over Liffey Gaels to book a play-off spot. And the U13 footballers remain top of Division One after a good win over Ballyboden. The U14s and U16s also got in on the winning act to also stay top with respective wins over Lucan and Cuala. Our senior ladies are within touching distance of securing promotion to Division One: next up is an important league outing against St Maur's under lights at Lawless Park in Swords on Wednesday night (7.30pm). The U18 girls are in the Championship Final on Saturday against O'Toole's and the U16 girls are in Championship Final action on Sunday against St Olaf's. Support very much appreciated.

GREAT win for the Senior A camogie team over Na Fianna on Sunday morning in the Championship. 0-8 to 0-5 the final score. They meet Ballyboden in the Final next Sunday in O'Toole Park. The Minor B footballers comprehensively beat Templeogue/Synge Street, 6-14 to 1-4, in their Championship clash. Fantastic win for our U15s footballers over Cuala to progress to the semi-final of the Championship in 2 weeks' time. Went a man down in 2nd half, but showed a lot of grit to pull through. 2-12 to 2-9 the final score. Fantastic win for the U15 camogie team on Sunday in their semi-final against a very strong Lucan team. Both U13 camogie teams are through to their Championship Finals after great wins on Sunday morning. Well done to all.
