Weekly Club Notes - 12/02/2023



Fixtures, Results & Training


It was great to see our Juvenile Boys teams get back to competitive action this weekend with home & away games for our U12,U13 & U14 boys on Saturday 11th Feb. Well done to all our young players!


Feile Peil na nÓg for our U15 Boys commenced with the 1st group game at home on Sunday 12th Feb. The lads faced off against St Patricks Donabate, and after a tense finish won out on a scoreline of 4-6 to 2-10. Great start lads! We will post more pics to Social media over the coming days!

Great support from across the club for the lads ! Thanks to all who dropped down to cheer them on and to all the parents who contributed to & helped out with the refreshments in the clubhouse afterwards - great to see the renowed Harps hospitality in action!


Many thanks to Michael Donohue for the superb shots as always!
