Trinity will enjoy Ryder Cup drama

THE Trinity Gaels Georgia O'Brien Memorial Golf Classic takes place this Saturday at Hollystown Golf Club.

The tee-off times are from noon to 2.pm. The cost is 50 Euro per golfer.

That includes starter pack, golf, dinner and tickets to the social night in the Donaghmede Inn.

Celtic Storm will be on stage and there will be an auction for a signed and framed Dublin jersey.

"Everybody is welcome. They can play in the golf or go to the social night, or indeed to do both," explains Damien Mongey.

More information from Damien (086-0761100) or David (087-7573101).

Skerries shine

HARRY DAWSON scored eight points for Skerries Harps against St Brigid's in the Dublin SFC at Parnell's on Saturday evening.

He proved a real handful for the Brigid's defence. He was always coming looking for the ball and he has the strength to hold off the challenges.

Six of his points came from frees in a terrific game which will go down as one of the best of Championship 2014.

The Harps were applauded off the pitch at the end. It was fully deserved.

Dublin's Bryan Cullen was inspirational at midfield. Donnacha Reilly struck two gems. Paul Cashman produced a nugget.

Jack Smith hit a delicious point. Jack and his brother, Eoin, are accomplished half-backs. They come from good Westmeath stock.

The Lucan v Raheny game was another super SFC duel. Lucan won it by two goals, but Raheny's revival in the second half had the audience on their toes.

It was terrific entertainment. And it forced home the point that you just cannot beat the cut and trust of knock-out championship football.

Terry returns

GOOD to see Terry Carton back in the boots.

Terry is one of Dublin's finest and fittest referees. And his return was welcomed by all.

Another leading referee, John Rutherford, is also getting back to full fitness, and all in the county wish him well.
