DUBLIN girls enjoyed the Cork under 13 and 14 Blitz held in Mallow GAA complex over the weekend. U13s lost to Galway in semi-final, a terrific game with only a goal separating the sides. Next Blitz for U13s will be in Tipperary on 23 June while the Dublin under 14 Blitz takes place on July 14. A great experience so many young players on the 5 teams to play against the best players in the country. Our thanks to all involved with these panels, players, mentors and parents. Well done!

THE Summer Cup - this competition was put in place to give games to club players who are not involved in playing for Dublin in the All Ireland championships. This is a fun competition which does not have the status of League or Championship and has no bearing on promotion or relegation. Players named on the County Senior and Junior panels are not eligible to play in the Summer Cup.
