Civil Service Hurling Club Newsletter 02 July 2013

Our recent winning run came to an end with defeat in a high scoring AHL8 contest v Oliver Plunketts on a sunny Islandbridge evening on Monday 24th June. We were made to pay for too many first half wides and then conceding two early 2nd half goals that proved to be the difference.

Our next important fixture is the JHC E quarter final away to Tomas Davis on Kiltipper Road on Thursday 4th July with throw in at 7.30pm. On Sunday 7th July we play host to Erins Isle in AHL6 at 11am in Islandbridge and our second team plays away to St Josephs OCB in Fairview Park at 3pm in AHL8. All players are asked to respond promptly to Teamer requests and be on time at the correct venue to be ready for each game.

Our next big non-playing event is our annual race night in Shelbourne Park Dublin on 11th July. This year we are fundraising in partnership with our own long serving member Liam Myles who works with VITA (see www.vita.ie) and is raising funds to participate in the Great Ethiopian Run later this year. The funds raised will be used to support VITA’s development work with rural families in southern Ethiopia to give families a more sustainable livelihood. VITA’s work includes sustainable and environmentally friendly projects which benefit the health and wellbeing of the community involving better farming methods, improved stoves, latrines, water wells/ pumps, tree planting and solar lights. By supporting the Race Night, you and your friends will be helping our club but you will also be supporting Liam and an excellent cause. Tickets are available through club members. Even if you can’t attend, your ticket will be entered in a jackpot draw.
