Div 2A Cup Ladies Senior team report v Man O War.


Very impressive team performance on our 1st competitive night out of the season on a miserable night in Skerries. Slow start to the game and we're 0-2 down at the 1st water break. The girls then took off and blew Man O War off the pitch with some great defending and great movement and quick passing to get the scoreboard moving in the right direction for Skerries. The final score was 3g and 5 pts to 0g 3pts restriction the opposition to 1 score for 45 mins. The team is full of experienced players mixed with youth so with this combination going forward we are really looking forward to the rest of the season with this fine group of players.

Both Minor Ladies Football teams played last Monday evening (28th March). Great win for our B team against St Monica's 5-11 to 4-5 & a narrow defeat for our A team against St Maurs 5-11 to 5-9. Two great matches and a great advertisement for Ladies Gaelic football.


Minor A team are due to play Castleknock A next Monday evening at home & no game for the B team next week as it is rescheduled until Monday 9th May. Hannah Mc Ginnis made her debut for the Dublin Minors in the 1st round of the Leinster Championship last Sunday against Meath. Results didn't go Dublin's way but Hannah had an outstanding match.



Minor Camogie Team won in their opening league Div 3 match

Skerries Harps 5-06 Round Towers Clondalkin 3-01


The minor camogie team took to the field in Clondalkin on a lovely Monday evening. This was the minor team's first outing in a newly created full minor camogie league, which sees the Harps girls competing in Division 3. We fielded 17 girls of whom 14 of 17 girls are first-year minors. The girls started strong winning the first ball and delivering it in long into the forward line, and they continued in this spirit for the next few minutes holding the Clondalkin girls in their own half for much of the opening 15 minutes. Clondalkin was saved on several occasions by their goalie who for most of the Skerries girls and supporters, was Clondalkin’s best player. She fielded well under the onslaught but eventually, the Harps girls got by her. We had scores from several of the girls. At half-time, the Harps girls were well settled into a good lead. Clondalkin rallied well in the second half and put our girls under pressure which saw some lovely saves from our goalie Keela Feehily. Given this was the girl's first match since last October’s championship they moved the ball well with some lovely passing across the field to keep switching the play. The Clondalkin team was no match for the Harps girls who continued to push forward. The girls came away worthy winners on a score of 5-06- 3-01. Scorers for the Harps were Aimee Maguire, Alex Ward, Daria Fingleton, Evelyn Appara, Hannah Lockhart, Hannah McGinnis, Niamh Finn and Tilly Fraser.

Well done to Tom Deering who lines up with the Dublin minors.



U14 - Div 4 - Skerries Harps ( A ) v Geraldine P Morans


Our U14 girl's team hosted Geraldine P Morans on a lovely sunny Sunday afternoon in Townparks. For various reasons, the number of U14 players available this weekend was significantly reduced. This resulted in our Div. 7 matches being conceded and our Div. 4 matches being played with a 50/50 split of girls from both panels.

This was our first Div. 4 match of the season and with Geraldine P Morans being a football-only club, who have already played three / four matches, the opposition proved to be too strong. The lack of game time took its toll and although the girls were well beaten in the end they battled hard and contested every ball right to the final whistle.

Whilst it proved to be a difficult afternoon the mentors can take heart from the positive attitude displayed by all of the girls, being able to fulfill the fixture, and having the first competitive match under our belt.

U12 girl's first camogie match of the season to the club notes- they played against O’Dwyers away on Saturday. Well done to all the girls today on their first camogie match of the season. Great skill and teamwork from everyone.


Our U12 Shenick team won v Round Tower Clondalkin 2-3 to 6-6 last weekend. Well done lads.




U11 boys played well against Trinity Gaels. Some great photo were sent in here.



Twenty-four U9 girls traveled to Balbriggan last Sunday in the beautiful sunshine. Across the three pitches, the players from both sides demonstrated their improved skills and enjoyed great activity and matches with much enthusiasm. Week by week they're getting better and better. We'll be back next week to the same venue for the camogie. Well to the entire team and to all involved.
