The Ladies Football update was missed:
The Minor A teams game v St Maurs was a victim of the weather over the weekend.
Our Minor B team were defeated by Whitehall Colmcilles in the league but an improved second half performance and a girl of the match performance from Kate Langan suggests that things are on the up for these girls.
Congratulations to our Plunketts girls in Leinster Championship action with Dublin over the past week with Aimee McKeon on the u16 Dublin team that defeated Longford and Eabha Ni Maolagain and Amber McCloskey on the Dublin u14 team that defeated Meath.

All the proceeds on the night go to the Irish Cancer Society which is a very worthy cause and coincides with Daffodil Day. Cancer unfortunately is experienced in almost every family and the Irish Cancer Society do fantastic work.
