Club Notes October 3rd by Daithi Brugha and P.R.O

Senior Camogie Squad can be very proud of their performance in the Senior A Championship Final on Sunday in Parnell Park. After leading at half time 1-05 :1-01 they eventually lost 2-08 : 1-06 and all played with great spirit and skill. Ballybodens greater experience told out in the end with 4 unanswered points in the final quarter. Player of the Match award went to Raheny Captain Martina Byrne. Congrats to Ballyboden St.Endas and thanks to the Raheny Management Team of Enda Mulcahy, Niall Dunne, Eugene Larmon, Jimmy Keogh and all the supporters who made for a great occasion.
