Warickshire take Lory Meagher Cup
Congratulations to Stan Murray Hession, Hillary's brother, leading Warickshire to the Lory Meagher in Croke Park today. I believe the lads trained in Bridgefield on Friday evening, well done Stan.
Junior D Championship Rosmini Gaels 1-5 St Sylvester’s 2-12 The junior football team were also in good scoring form with a very good championship victory over Rosmini. With Derek Roche at centre back and Shay Keogh in the middle we certainly had experience on the field and with Tricky O'Donnell on form at corner forward we kept the scoring ticking over.
AFL1 St Maurs 1-06 St Sylvesters 0-10 Match Abandoned . . .Downpour started when the ball was thrown in and ended five minutes after the match was abandoned mid second half. We had just scraped our way into the lead over a very game Maurs
AFL3 St Sylvesters 3-09 St Finbarrs 4-03 Our Intermediate footballers rounded off a very productive week with a hard fought 3pt win over a very strong Naomh Fionnbarra side on Saturday evening. A win that has us right in contention, only 2 points behind table toppers Clontarf, at the half way stage in the competition.
AFL3 Naomh Olaf 0-11 St. Sylvester's 2-11 After losing our last two league games the pressure was on the get back to winning ways in the league. When Mark Finnerty hit the net with 30 seconds on the clock the stage was set for our lads to produce one of their best performances of the season so far.
Nice report and pictures in the Herald - unfortunately the U13 hurlers were pipped at the post at Old Conna on Saturday after leading for most of the game. See report attached
The U12 footballers continued their good form with 3 wins in their recent round of games. The A team faced off against a very strong Clontarf team who were just behind us in 3rd place in the league and always give us problems but on this occasion we put in a hardworking and skilful display to run out 7-08 to 2-09 winners. We are now second in Division 1 and playing some good football.
Congrats to our Minor Footballer and Hurler, Paul McBride who finished 4th in the East of Ireland Golf Championship against the top amateurs in the country, a mighty achievement and another great Malahide Golfer for sure.
Ladies Senior Championship St Sylvesters 0-10 St Brigids 1-07 A valiant effort by the girls getting their second draw in their first ever senior championship campaign but it wasn't enough to qualify for the knockouts. There was no doubt that Brigids were a top class senior team but our girls stayed with them to the end with the lead changing hands a few times in the final quarter.
AFL3 St Sylvesters 0-12 Castlenock 2-12 Cracking game in pitch 2 tonight saw the Inters lose to a strong Castlenock but definitely not without a fight. We hit the bar and drew a great save from the opposing keeper in the middle of the second half that thwarted our comeback. Cotsie will hopefully send a report.
AHL3 St Sylvesters 3-18 St Judes 0-11 Played Saturday - St Sylvesters 1-12 Thos Davis 1-11 played Wednesday. Wednesdays win over Davis at Broomfield was a a superb comeback after being down by 7 points at one stage. Gareth brought a bit of pep into the half back line and Nigel finished with a super goal and a cheeky point. Saturday we travelled with a very tight panel but everyone contributed to a great win, even Hillary Cluxton Murray-Hession scoring from 100 yards and Enda scored a goal coming off the bench.
Fantastic hurling Skills on show in Malahide Castle as the U8's hosted O'Tooles, in fine weather for a change. Under Armour swapped for Sun Cream and parents spotted with Deck chairs. Pics from Peter Hickey, fabulous
Sorry I'm late posting this report - Feile this year ended in disappointment for our under 14s as we failed to qualify out of the group stage, having lost Daniel denneher to injury a week before the tournament the lads were always going to have it all to do.
Congratulations to Ballyboden St Endas winning both Football and Hurling Feiles - a magnificent achievement. Syls under 14s got back to winning ways on Thursday evening against feile champions ballyboden st endas, with a lot of injuries and the first year exams up and running we were down to the bare bones numbers wise, we had 16 players on the night but every one of them played their heart out.
Following last weeks 2pt defeat to Ballyboden, Syls girls travelled to Clann Na Gael for their 2nd senior championship game. After playing against a strong wind in the first half the girls trailed by 4 points at the break.
Firstly, congratulations to the 5 Syls players who won SFAI Cup medals will Malahide United last Saturday - Sean Gibson, Denis Smith, Simon Murphy, Josh Bannon and goalscoring hero Sean Guiden. Well done on behalf of the U12 players and Management
Nursery Off 26th

Club, Lotto, Coaching notes
AFL1 St Sylvester’s 0-17 O’Tooles 1-5 A steady stream of good scores and a very mean defence gave us a comfortable lead going into the final quarter. Even manager, Gabriel Bannigan should have been pleased with this performance. Saturday’s game against St Maur’s was abandoned just after we scored to lead the game in the second half.
AHL3 St Sylvester’s 2-10 Parnells 2-19 A severely depleted intermediate hurling team could not provide the answers for a very sharp Parnells outfit. Barry Kiely scored a goal and a point early in the second half to provide some hope but Parnell’s kept the scoreboard ticking over more consistently.
At juvenile level our under 14s take on St Jude’s in division 1 on Saturday at 14.00 in Bridgefield. Give yourself a treat and support this fantastic team.
. . working for people with sight loss. Where : St Sylvester’s G A A Club, Church Road, Malahide When: Thursday, May 30th at 8:30 p.m. Tables of 4- €40 per table Why not come along and join in the fun and support a good cause at the same time?!!
