Well done to Killian McGinnis who lined up for the senior Dublin football team last week. Exciting times ahead cheering Killian and the Dubs on!
Well done to the Community School team who played in a final this week, not the result they hoped for but they left everything on the pitch and it was a performance they should be very proud of. We send out best to Cillian Emmet who was injured at match.
Last year's U16 boys held their medal presentations today in the club. Their ‘Shenick’ footballers won the U16A Shield beating some of the tops names in Division 1 football along the way. Skerries Harps last won this particular shield 5 years ago when this year's U21 footballers won it. That U21 team went on to win the A Championship this year so hopefully the future fairs well for this bunch.
The ‘Colt’ (B) hurlers received their medals for runners-up in the league. Indeed, 2021 was the first time that Skerries Harps had fielded 2 teams at U16 hurling and to win medals was an added boost for hurling in the club.
The lads enjoyed the prize-giving celebrations followed by food, drinks & a few games of pool in the clubhouse.
This squad has been helped out by last year U15’s and a huge thanks are owed to them too. Another example of what club support can do.
Aoife Donoghue, Hannah Maginnis, Lauren Fanning, Lauren Bryce, and Grace El Shamy played for Loreto Balbriggan in the All Ireland Schools Camogie Quarter Final against Garron Tower. Game played in Cushendun in the Glens of Antrim. Unfortunately, the Antrim ladies were too strong but the girls acquitted themselves very well.
Following a meeting of the Management Committee of the Central Council, a decision was made that water breaks will remain in place until 1st April 2022 or until the completion of any competition which has commenced prior to this date.
Any competitions commencing after the 1st April 2022 can no longer have scheduled water breaks.
