Its been quiet in Islandbridge, maybe a bit too quiet with small numbers at training and no games over the last two weeks. That all changes this week starting with a challenge game against St Jude’s on Monday 12th August in Islandbridge. Training will be as usual on Wednesday at 7pm with a possible extra session next weekend to be confirmed and again on Monday and Wednesday next week. This is to prepare for a crucial fixture for our first team against Faughs on Sunday 25th August where the loser faces relegation to JHC “C”.
Our second team will also be in action that weekend. All players are asked to make a big effort to attend training and work on personal fitness and skills in these two weeks.
Off the pitch, the Civil Service Hurling Club Golf Society is preparing for our annual golf outing on on 6th September. The outing is moving upmarket to the K Club this year to mark the 30th anniversary of the golf society and the 90th anniversary of the club. The organisers are making a major effort to have as many former players attend, to afford people the opportunity to catch up with past teammates. Non-golfers are invited to attend the meal. Anyone interested to attend or help out in any way should contact Gerry Butler or Jim Power.
