FRIENDS OF DUBLIN HURLING
THE elements played a massive part in our two defeats in the last week. Our U21s were so unlucky to have lost their game. They played extremely well and were the better team. The strong sun in our goalie's eyes was the cause of the final goal that cost us the game. The senior game was played with the high winds playing a big part. Winning the toss was crucial and unfortunately Galway got the nod and had the game wrapped up within 20 minutes. Our seniors have one more chance to get back to winning ways and we now await the draw. Members who renew their membership in June will be in a draw for 2 tickets to the Dublin qualifier game. Membership costs €20 for adults and €10 for juveniles. You can sign online at www.fodh.ie or send your money and details to Tom O'Donnell, Games Office, St Vincent's CBS, Glasnevin, Dublin 11.

Hard luck to our valiant junior footballers, who were so unlucky to go out of their Championship with a loss to St Brigid's. All juvenile games were called off at the weekend as a mark of respect to Donabate's own Shetemi Ayetigbo. The whole peninsula came to a halt on Saturday to celebrate his life. We offer our sympathy to his family & friends, who miss him so much.

Whilst Shay wasn't a member of the club, he played on both the DPETNS & the DCC GAA teams and was a pleasure to coach. Ní bheidh a leithead ann aris.
