OUR Heroes of the Week this week are our U11 girls' team, who with a win last Wednesday, have now gone 5 out of 5 in the league with a brilliant all-round team performance. Well done girls, and take a bow, you are our "Laoch na Seachtaine" and well-deserved too. The brilliance of Niamh Cody, Rebecca Walsh and Ella Keating helped to win, but the managers stressed it was the way in which the girls played that made the team win. They now have training in St Kevin's on Wednesday at 6.30pm. Well done girls. Our U10 boys' team nearly pipped the girls for Heroes of the Week this week, as they played a brilliantly-organised Blitz in Na Fianna last weekend, and went on to win it, and to get runners-up with the B team in the Shield competition. Now that's how to play competitive football. Well done in particular to Luca Danielle and Sean O'Connell. Top class displays from both of the boys helped terrific team performances. Congratulations to both Dublin teams on a great day in Croke Park, and particularly, our members who were more than pivotal in helping the footballers to a huge win. Best wishes for a speedy recovery to young Mark Leonard. Over the weekend he got to see his beloved Dubs and Arsenal triumph, and this will no doubt speed up the recovery. A big thank you also to Dean Rock, who dropped into Mark last week also. Keep an eye out for all the dates of our Summer Camps, Road Leagues, our Annual Golf Classic and our Family Club Day "La nagClub". All the details of which are on our website, www.ballymunkickhams.com, where you can also link to our Facebook page and Twitter feeds.

Our sincere sympathies go out to his wife Collette and sons Cathal and Fintan at this time.

Maur's adult hurlers lost out away to St Vincent's, 2-13 to 2-6. Our adult ladies footballers narrowly lost out to Clann Mhuire at home with a score of 4-6 to 3-10.

The U8 ladies footballers played two hard games in Kilbarrack against Naomh Barrog GAA. Both games were close and the girls did great with one game full of attacking play and the other needing hard-tackling and industrious play. One game won and one game lost. St Maur's U7 played in a great Blitz Sunday morning in Na Fianna against Na Fianna and FingallIans. It was great to see 3 Maur's teams out on a Bank Holiday weekend. We recorded plenty of wins too.
