St Dominic’s hurlers saw their season bid farewell after a hard fought semi-final match in Pearse Park, Crumlin.
The players worked extremely hard throughout, but came up against tough opposition.
Ciaran (4th) made a fantastic save in the 1st half to keep Dominic’s in the game. Lauren and Eoin (5th) made sure St Joseph’s had to work for their scores, while Ben and Robyn stemmed the flow of attacks throughout.
Ciaran (6th) gave another captain’s performance worthy of any inter-county player of his age, with Stewart fulfilling his engine duties brilliantly buzzing up and down the pitch beside him.
Jack and Jakub pressed their defenders for the game’s entirety. Eoin (6th) and Michael got close to getting some scores too in the full-forward line.
Super subs Keelan, Alex and Jake kept focused and performed perfectly to help their team when called upon.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be our day, but these players can be proud of themselves. They have trained every week since January and have improved dramatically in such a short space of time.
We would like to thank our 6th Class players – Ciaran, Stewart, Lauren, Robyn, Jakub and Eoin – for their commitment to St Dominic’s GAA this year and wish them every bit of success as they move onto secondary school next year.
Finally, a special thanks is reserved for the parents of the players. Without your support throughout the year with lifts, these children would never have made it to a match or training.
Mr Fagan, Mr Donnellan, Ms Hogan and Mr Vaughan are immensely proud of this team, having made the semi-final of the competition for the first time in the school’s history, and look forward to getting started for the new season in 2016/2017!
