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.
AHL3 Commercials 2-09 St Sylvesters 3-16 A win that keeps us in contention for automatic promotion to Senior league hurling, we led from start to finish and recovered from a wobble before half time to finish well in control. It looked like the game was over early when we led by 10 points but two goals against before the break rocked us having to face a strong wind in the second half.

The Junior Ladies had their first win tonight in their third game in a close fought challenge game against Na Gaeil Óga (an Irish Language speaking team in Bloomfield. The final score was Syls 5-6 Na Gaeil Oga 4-5. Great to have a win with the first Championship game away to Thomas Davis next Monday. Peter Hickey has promised to send a few photographs.
In their three outings leading to winning the Leinster championship, Dublin amassed an impressive tally of 19 goals and 53 points. Their most potent sector on the field was without question the Dubs full forward line of Lyndsey Davey, Sinead Aherne and Lindsay Peat.

The players, mentors and parents of the U13 teams would like to send their condolences to the Fitzgerald Family on the sudden death of Andrea, mother of our team mate, Daniel. Andrea was a constant presence at all Daniels matches and hugely supportive to all the players and mentors. We will miss her positive contribution and encouragement.
AFL1 Kilmacud Crokes 0-16 St Sylvesters 0-14 Never out of it but always a couple of points off the pace on Saturday evening away to Crokes. We were very tight on our panel and didn't have the backup late in the game to make the push for the win. We did score plenty of good points, Jockser, Eoin Fanning, Niall, Alan Foy all contributing but the few goal chances we spurned in the first half were probably the missed chance to win.
Just a short note. In Syls. 111 year history Last Night 23 July 2014 was the first time we had two adult ladies teams playing side by side in Broomfield. The Seniors had a good Cup win V Lucan Sarsfields on pitch 2. On the other side of the hedge Pitch 4 the new Junior Team started their Championship Season (mid season) with a challenge V Fingallians. The Swords team won well on the scoreboard, but Syls put up a fighting spirited performance for their very first game. They start their Championship bid V Thomas Davis away on Monday 11 August 2014.

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 email@example.com 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.
