The AFL Div.4 side lose by a point 0-11 1-9 to Cuala.

Saturday was also a big day in Portlaoise with Eimear, Saoirse and Aoife representing Castleknock in the U-14 Camagie Blitz and hurlers Callum Sheridan, Sean Doyle and Dylan Clarke being on the Dublin U-14 team that beat Galway. A great occasion for everyone concerned.

Work was begun on the Clubhouse Patio with some serious manhours put in by Mick Lynch, Alan Rushe, Patrick McKeown and Emmet McGarvey. Thanks to everyone concerned.

May 12 – The Senior Footballers got back on track in the AFL Div.2 with a workmanlike 3-7 0-5 win over Scoil Úi Chonaill. The AFL Div.4 team have 11 points to spare over Na Fianna (5-11 2-9) to keep their League challenge very much alive. The AFL Div.9 team lost to Rosmini Gaels (0-8 1-16) but the AFL Div.11S side beat St. James’s Gaels (1-16 0-5). Alfie Sawyer made a cameo appearance and a clash of jerseys forced Castleknock as the home team to wear their jerseys inside out. Not a great fashion statement if the truth be told.

Mixed news in the MHL - Div.1 Castleknock 4-22 Thomas Davis 4-15. Div.3 Castleknock lost to O’Toole’s. Div.4N Castleknock lost to St. Peregrine’s.

Castleknock Club Notes – April 30 – May 6

April 30 – Féile week begins with a 2-6 3-8 defeat for the Castleknock Camogie Senior 2 League team against a pacey Kilmacud side while at the same time the Junior 2 League team has a point to spare 1-9 2-5 over St. Finian’s. An exciting 4-15 6-7 win the same evening for the U-14 Girls footballers against Cuala.

May 1 – The Ladies Footballers Div.2 team lose a high-scoring thriller to O’Dwyer’s out in Balbriggan, 6-7 5-13. The Ladies Div.5 team beat St. Finian’s/St. Margaret’s 6-13 0-4 to bring their League tally to 20-49 in 4 games. Two goals apiece for Aoife Delaney and Rachel Slater.

May 4 – A disappointing Féile for both Boys teams. The Div.1 Boys fail to get out of a strong group out in Silverpark (well done Kilmacud who won Div.1 out) and it is just as hard in Somerton for the Div.6 Boys (congrats to St. Maur’s who won Div.6). Many thanks to all our players, parents and mentors. Congrats to Conor Murray and Luke Swan on Dublin’s Leinster MHC win over Offaly (1-23 1-10). Luke goals for the third Dublin game in a row. A Senior ‘B’ SHC defeat (0-13 3-19) out in Shankill as Cuala produce some flawless hurling.

May 5 – Two Championship wins out of two as the Junior ‘C’ Hurlers get the better of St. Sylvester’s in Somerton (1-15 1-3). Brian Carter’s ‘wonder’ goal the highlight. Victory for the MFL1 team against Skerries (1-14 2-10) as last gasp points from Cian Boyle and Ronan McCann help sneak the win. In the MFL3 a remarkable game sees Castleknock go from 5 goals down to almost grab a win but Clanna Gael Fontenoy just hold on to win it 6-9 6-6. MFL5N 0-10 Whitehall 2-11.

May 6 - Congrats  to Hannah Bourke on qualifying for the Dublin Camogie Poc Fada Juvenile Final on May 17.

Castleknock Club Notes April 23-28

April 23 – Congrats to the club’s Dublin Minor Footballers Alex Watson, Senan Forker, Luke Swan and Ben Harding on their Leinster Championship win over Meath (4-10 2-10), Luke grabbing 1-1 late on to seal the win.

April 24 – A terrific battling win over St. Vincent’s (3-8 0-14) in Round 2 of the SFC, Shane Boland, Gerard McDermottroe and Kevin Stephenson the goal-scorers on a never to be forgotten night in Malahide ensuring a fourth successive SFC Quarter-Final slot as a result. Not such a good evening for our Minor Footballers however, the Div.1 team losing 1-15 3-15 to St. Sylverster’s, the Div.3 side going down by 1-8 4-12 to neighbours St. Brigid’s and the Div.5N team losing 2-5 3-8 to St. Paul’s. Better news for the Ladies 1 Footballers as they register a hard fought 3-11 3-09 win over Clann Mhuire in the Adult Div.2 Cup and a huge 7-13 1-04 win over St. Monica’s for our Ladies 2 Footballers in the Adult League Div.5.

April 25 – No Jackpot Winner – Next week’s Jackpot €3,400 – Match 3 Winners receive €75 each – Terry Buckley, Darren Martin, Valery McSherry and Ronan Travers.

April 27th – Disappointment for Conor Murray (0-1) and Luke Swan (1-0), following on his goal for the Minor footballers on Tuesday, as Dublin go down by 2-8 0-15 in the Leinster Minor Hurling Championship v Kilkenny in Nowlan Park. Sadly no joy either for Aisling O’Neill (0-2) or Lucy Quinn who were on the Dublin U-16 Ladies Football team beaten by Meath (2-5 3-9) in the Leinster Final in Ballymore Eustace. Congrats to Cliona Hewson on being part of the Dublin Camogie U-15 Development squad’s trip to Wexford.

April 28th – One to forget for the Junior 1 Footballers as they were outplayed 2-6 1-20 by Ballinteer St. John’s in R.2 of the Championship. Better news from the Blakestown Road as the JFC3 team recorded a hard fought 1-14 1-10 win over St. Peregrine’s to keep their Group hopes alive. The JFC5 team lost their rearranged match against Clanna Gael Fontenoy 1-6 1-15, a notable feature of the game being the return to competitive action of Eoghan O’Callaghan a member of the club’s first Adult Football team back in 1998. MHL Div.1 Castleknock 1-7 St. Vincent’s 4-21 MHL Div.3 Castleknock 2-9 Skerries 4-19.

Congrats to Senior footballer Tommy McDaniel on winning NFL Div.3 title with his native Westmeath to add to the O’Byrne Cup medal he won earlier in the year when Westmeath beat Dublin (including our own Shane Boland) in the Final.

April 07 - A late Castleknock point beats Erin’s Isle 0-13 0-12 in windy conditions in Finglas in the Junior Hurling ‘C’ Championship. In the afternoon Raheny proved much too strong for our Third team hurlers in the Junior Hurling ‘F’ Championship in Somerton 6-11 1-7. The Adult Camogie League Div.2 team produced a terrific display to beat Raheny 4-12 2-11.

Excellent League wins for both Minor Football league teams in Somerton. Div.1 Castleknock 5-17 Thomas Davis 2-14. Div.3 Castleknock 3-11 Templeogue Synge Street 1-7.

In spite of beating Na Fianna our Div.5 side lose to Scoil Úi Chonaill, St. Mark’s and Westmanstown Gaels and so fail to make it to the knock-out stages.

Castleknock Ladies Football teams combine to play Australian Rules in great bonding exercise in DCU.
