Minors and U16’s in Dub Action




Many congratulations to Dublin Minor Hurlers and our own Dónal Gormley on reaching their second All-Ireland Final in succession with a tremendous fightback in Croke Park on Sunday where they snatched victory in injury-time from a Clare side that had enjoyed superiority for most of the match.


Well done also to Dublin Under 16 players Robert Aherne, Enda Larkin and Iarlaith MacGabhann who were also on the winning side in their matches against Tipperary in Thurles on Saturday afternoon. Robert’s match ended prematurely as he aggravated an injury he sustained the previous week in a successful visit to Cork and we wish him a speedy return to Club and County action.
