Sinead Aherne and Niamh McEvoy starred for Dublin once again as they beat Galway in the semi final in Mullingar today. Congratulation to all the girls and best of luck in the final against (Cork I think ?) -
SHC B QF Setanta 0-14 St Sylvesters 2-07 Beaten by pretty much the last puck of the game but, in truth, the scoreline tells the real story of 14 scores to 9. A Martin Ormond goal mid first half and a Martin Casey one just before the break gave us a flattering 2-04 to 0-04 lead. We pointed on the restart but from there on it was pretty much all Setanta with the wind in their backs they picked off a steady, if slow, stream of points. Defensively we put up a great effort and Setanta only threatened our goal once when well handled to Anthony.
As of 28th August . . . .Hurlers looking for Senior League status, need two wins . . . . other than that we are depending on championships for a bit of excitement . . . and I'm sure there will be some, starting this Saturday evening at Poppintree for Senior Hurling B Championship Quarter Finals and two weeks time Junior B Championship Final . . .
The business end of the season is well under way for the Dublin ladies as they face Galway in the first of the All Ireland semi- finals this Saturday, in Cusack Park, Mullingar. Niamh and Sinéad certainly had their shooting boots on last Saturday when Dublin dispatched Kerry in the quarter final in Birr
AFL1 St Sylvesters 0-10 Parnells 2-05 Disappointing loss in a game we dominated for about 50 minutes but didn't take enough scores. We were leading by two and still looking comfortable when Conor Mortimer earned a penalty that was well executed. We traded points but missed a couple of opportunities to equalise .It was a lovely evening with a big crowd but a pity to have lost a good lively game. Good to see Dave Galvin back in action after a long layoff.
JFC D QF St Sylvesters 1-09 St Oliver Plunkets ER 1-13 AET.Disappointing result in a game we looked like winning for long periods but we just didn't take our chances when we were in control and paid the price late in the game when Plunkets fresh legs off the bench seemed to make the difference.
JFC B SF St Sylvesters 1-12 Robert Emmets 0-11 Congratulations to the Junior A team on a fine semi final win over a nice looking Emmets team in Broomfield. We struggled early on and trailed 4 to 2 but a few changes just before the break yielded a good Kev O'Flynn goal and a few points and this knocked Emmets back. We dominated for a long while in the second half before a late Emmets charge made us concentrate till the end.
Congratulations to Sinead with 8 points and Niamh McEvoy contributed a goal when Dublin beat Kerry 2-12 to 1-10 in Birr today.
Our U13 Division Two winners for 2014 returned to training last night in preparation for their first Division one Championship match against Cuala A on August 30th. Its full steam ahead for the squad and their coaches and on behalf of all the parents,supporters and Sylvesters committee members I would like to wish the Girls the best of luck.
AHL6 : Kevins 1-16, Syls 3-11 - Dolphins Barn, Sunday 17th August 2014 We led for about 3 seconds, the last 3 seconds as it turns out, as the Ref blew up for full time, much to the bemusement of the Syls line, Des Cahill ( Cuala were playing footie beside us) and a scrawny fox that ambled by ! But it was pleasing to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat as we've done the opposite often enough.

Attached is a short history of St Sylvesters compiled by Ashley White. I had a small history of Malahide before and will resurrect. I also have some old pictures in the Scrapbook Gallery and some other old pictures in a Scrapbook section but it would be really nice to build on Ashley's work and I would welcome any contributions either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or simply commenting on this article. Thanks Ashley.
Friends and colleagues at St Sylvesters would like to express our condolences to Tom, Reuben, Killian and Vincent and to Helen and Eoin on the passing of their mother Nora (nee Clarke) in County Mayo.
St Sylvesters lost another great friend, member and supporter today with the passing of Alan Nugent, may he rest in peace. Alan was a true gentleman, always had a friendly greeting and generously supported all Syls activities and he will be sadly missed around the club. We send our condolences to Ann, James and Aiden and to Alan's many friends. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam usail. .
Con passed away last evening at Beaumont Hospital, may he rest in peace. Con was a member of St Sylvesters and of Naomh Mearnóg and a piper who had led many a Syls team over the Bridge having won a trophy. Con was a smiling enthusiast guy with a lovely Cork lilt that you loved to meet at a match. We played Mearnógs in minor hurling earlier in the Summer and I remember Con wishing us a good game, which we had. St Sylvesters send our condolences to Mary and Cons family and we'll remember Con for his support and friendship. Ar dheas Dé go raibh a anam.
I just wanted to let you all know about an unbelievable achievement.
