Civil Service Hurling Club Newsletter 10 September 2013

We had a lively challenge game with St Brigids on Monday 2nd September. We were ahead for much of the game but a couple of late goals shifted the advantage and gave a narrow victory for the visitors. We were due to be back to league action at the weekend but games were rescheduled.

Our AHL6 game against Naomh Olaf will now take place on Saturday 14th September in Islandbridge, details will be circulated on Teamer. At the time of submitting these notes, we don’t know the result of our second team AHL8 game v Crumlin in Islandbridge on Monday 9th September.

On another field of play, the CSHC Golf Society celebrated its 30th anniversary in grand style with our annual outing taking place in the KClub on Friday 6th September. Over 40 past and present players took on the Smurfit course on a fine fresh afternoon where the clouds threatened but the rain held off. Competition was tight at the top. Paschal Moran won the event and was presented with the Seamus Haugh memorial trophy. Stephen Dunne came 2nd and Tommy Carew was 3rd. Between golf, facilities, weather, food and good company, it was a great day. Many thanks to the society’s captain for 2013, Gerry Butler, and to Jim Power and their committee for organising this great occasion that brings past and present members of the club together each year on All Ireland weekend.

Our recently postponed BBQ is now to go ahead next Saturday evening in Islandbridge after the Olaf’s game. Anyone available to assist in clubhouse cleanup earlier in the afternoon would be welcome. The results of our All Ireland final score prediction competition will be in these notes next week. Training as usual this week on Wednesday at 7pm sharp.
