Anne's inviteall to call infor tea and fun

BIG day in Bohernabreena next Saturday. 'Up in Anne's' will be a family fun day that throws-in at 1.pm.

It's a showcase event for the St Anne's club and they extend an invite to the people of Tallaght, Firhouse, Knocklyon and elsewhere to come along.

There will be stands, a family fun zone, juvenile games, food, music and much more.

"We want to show people what St Anne's can offer on and off the pitch," says club PRO, Linda Harbron.

"It will show people that we are more than just a GAA club. It's a chance for people who have moved into the area to meet new friends.

"It will be a very enjoyable afternoon for all the family. And we'll be on hand to tell them anything they want to know about the club."

Mearnog Marvels

DUBLIN chairman, Andy Kettle, pointed the car towards Portmarnock. The U15 Division 2 Football League trophy was beside him in the passenger seat.

He duly presented it to the Naomh Mearnog captain, Karl Bissett.

Mearnog had a marvellous campaign. They played 12 matches, winning nine, losing two and drawing one.

It was a highly competitive division. They just held off the challenge of Cuala A and Erin's Isle.

A couple of other teams hit more scores that Mearnog, but the Portmarnock lads had the best defence in the league.

And, once again, the old saying rings true - good teams are built from the back.

Don't cut Dubs

TOP journalist, Gordon Manning, was on the wireless speaking about the proposed cuts to Dublin's kitty from HQ.

He is involved at the coal-face with his club, Ranelagh Gaels, and he has seen how the funding has benefited Gaelic games in the capital.

The Gaels run an Academy every week in Herbert Park that is most successful.

Dublin 4 is at the heart of rugby country and Gordon feels its crucial to have the right coaching structures in place to allow the GAA make in-roads in places like Ranelagh, Milltown, Donnybrook and Ballsbridge.
