Civil Service Hurling Club Newsletter 08 October 2013

The club was saddened to learn of the death of our former member Seamus Power on Saturday. Seamus was one of the great Civil Service hurlers in 70s and 80s, playing on that great team that won league, cup and intermediate championship titles in 1986. Seamus also played with Civil Service footballers. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.

Its been quiet in Islandbridge for a couple of weeks now that most of our competitive fixtures for 2012 have been played but we’re still in action. We played another challenge last week against Clan na Gael Fontenoys on a wet Thursday evening under the lights in Sean O’Moore Park. The game followed a similar pattern to when we played them recently in Islandbridge. Clan went well ahead in the first half but we made a good second half comeback. It was a competitive fast moving game right to the end with a final score of 5-14 to 4-8. Not a bad outcome as some of the Clan players are still involved in intermediate championship and clearly had the edge on pace, first touch and distribution. Only one AHL6 fixture to play v Liffey Gaels. Details to be confirmed.

Training as usual this week on Wednesday at 6.30pm sharp. Mella’s rip and spin classes are available in the gym to club members for those planning their winter training.
