St Brigid's are boosted by their Fab Féile Stars

CAMOGIE'S cauldron keeps bubbling at St Brigid's. It took its first swing back in 1970. There have been a few goals and points scored since then.

Now the Naomh Brid flag is flying higher than ever over Russell Park.

A further boost came with last week's Dublin Division 4 Feile success.

Brigid's beat Lucan Sarsfields in the final at O'Toole Park.

Brigid's two goals proved crucial. They came from Amy Quinn and the Captain Fantastic Zoe Mayne.

The Player-of-the-Match was the Brigid's number 7, Deirdre McCarthy. One word summed up her performance - magnificent.

The press box purred at her sweet skill and the power of her striking.

John McCarthy, Tim Carey and Siobhan Mayne are the mentors. They highlighted the overall work-rate of the side.

Each girl did more than her share in paying the rent.

And now as the turf hardens, there's an extra bounce on the camogie corridors.

Last season, the club had success with their U15s and U16s.

The adult teams are doing well and there's a cluster of personnel on the different Dublin squads.

The facilities are top notch. They include the famed all-weather surface.

Last year, the club held a very successful Camogie Spectacular.

All the stars of yesteryear were invited along.

The Legends laced up the boots for one more time.

Now, the new legends of tomorrow are making impressive strides.
