MHL D2N Naomh Barrog 4-5 vs 0-14 Clan na Mara Disappointing result having started well, points from Eoin Mc, Simon, Shane and Rory going 4 points up into the wind but then we stopped dead in our tracks and let Barróg take over for 3-03 to 0-06 at the break. We were much more competitive in the second half, Sean Dolan, Scrappy, in particular and the two Killians driving us forward.
Couple of tough looking local derbys here . . . Maurs, Kickams, Clontarf in football, Whithall, Finbars, Isles in hurling . . .
Congratulations from all in Syls to the Scoil Iosa Girls on winning the Dublin Senior Ladies Schools Final against St MacDaras Community College, Templeogue. After a very tense first half and the teams level at the break the girls had to work hard in the second half to secure victory and a Leinster Final clash against Gorey CS on Tuesday 11th March at 1pm in Emmets GAA Grounds in Bray.
It was a busy weekend for the U13 hurlers and footballers of St Sylvesters. On Friday night we held the presentation of 2013 Football league medals for Divisions 1 and 5. We had players and families along and hopefully this is the first of many medal presentations we will be doing with these squads over the coming years.
***Hard fought win in poor conditions** 2nd March 2014 AHL6 - Civil service 1-5 v Syls 1-6 Islandbridge The score line tells the story of how poor the conditions were but certainly not the effort put in by both teams. Early on, Service coped better and moved into a 1-4 to no score lead after 20 mins before Syls began to exert some influence, Conor Dwyers move to midfield tipping the balance in Syls favour, it yielded 2 frees which Pat Hoyne duly converted with his usual aplomb ! HT score 1-4 to 0-2.
AHL3 St Vincents 2-09 St Sylvesters 0-15 For the second week in a row we drew at PNU. A fair result I would say after a very good game. Vincents opened strongly ad threatened to blow us away leading 1-04 to 0-01 a couple of Ormonde frees steadied us, Alan, Kevin and Killian got to grips with the middle and Andrew up front and we were were three down at the break.
MFL Div2 We lost our first outing by a single point over in Swords. Padraic was a little disappointed, felt we might have stole it in the end. The Minor Bs were disappointed to get a walkover from O'Dwyers.
MHL 2 Clan na Mara 0-07 Whitehall Colmcille 1-11 First outing for the amalgamated Syls Scoil outfit but Whitehall were too strong in the important departments, got the goal straight after the break and held us out for the remainder. Defensively we were solid, Barry Cushen made a few important saves while Sean at fullback and Andrew and Fhelim in the half line won their battles. We could have scored more and been closer in the end but Whitehall, who have always hurled in Div1 looked to have more class.
Following the introduction of new rules in relation to mouthguards for Gaelic football in 2013 and 2014, it is now compulsory for all juvenile and adult players (excluding adult females) to wear mouthguards when training and playing games.
U16F Div2 Three early goals caught us flat footed on the all weather at Ballymun and we just never quite recovered. We played into a strong cold wind in the first half and battled back gamely, dominating the second quarter but didn't convert enough on the scoreline. We came out strong in the second half but, again, didn't convert enough to dent Ballymuns lead, missing goal chances an both posts and the opposing keeper making a few great saves.
Club, lotto, coaching, notes
Sinead Aherne scored 1-3 for the Dublin ladies football team that drew with Cork in Parnell Park and remain unbeaten at the top of the table. Niamh McEvoy also put in an outstanding performance and Nicole Owens came off the bench to play her part.
The winner of the Cheltenham Race Night was Pat Mccarthy (Michaels father) - hope the week is lucky for you Pat and all our other racing fans.
AHL3 St Vincent’s 2-9 St Sylvester’s 1-12 The intermediate hurlers got off to a great start with a battling performance to gain a draw away to St Vincent’s. Most heartening was the appearance of Fionn Carney and Niall Coughlan playing on the same pitch where they played senior football last week.
Maura Glennon passed away in Tyrellspass Co. Westmeath last night. Maura was mother of Ann Moore a Mentor on the Syls Minor Ladies Team and also a Mentor on the Scoil Iosa Ladies Senior team. She will be reposing in her home in Church Road Tyrellspass until Saturday morning before her Funeral which will follow 12.00 Mass in St Stephen's Church, Tyrellspass.

AFL1 St Vincent’s 3-7 St Sylvester’s 0-16 This was a great result for the team and the new management. In very blustery conditions we put up some very good scores with Michael McCarthy prominent and excellent performances from all the players. There will be disappointment that we didn’t come away with all the points.
