SKERRIES 1g5p, SYLS 5g18p Conviction, passion, determination and all round a electrifying display of free flowing football is the only way to describe this match. A sunny Monday evening in great weather conditions brought two attacking teams together with the syls minors coming out on top.
AHL9: St Finians 2-6 St Sylvesters 1-12 ( Ridgewood, Swords 20th April 2015) Another good win for this new adult team, 3 out of 3 by my reckoning but more importantly the team is becoming more self-sufficient each week and relying less on players doubling up.
Vincent De Paul Cup Fingal Ravens 1-07 St. Sylvester’s 1-12 Our senior footballers got another good win on Saturday evening over a Fingal Ravens side who were coming off the back of a league victory over Ballymun Kickhams.
AHL6: Réalt Dearg 2-13 St Sylvesters 3-13. (Drimnagh Castle, Sunday 19th April) 3 points up a HT against a stiff enough breeze ( Syls 2-5 to 0-8), we felt that we could push on in the 2nd half but Syls never really grabbed the game by the scruff against a Réalt Dearg side that had quite a few very skillful players.
AHL2 : Raheny 1-16 St Sylvesters 1-13. (St Annes, Saturday 18th April) After a sluggish start , Syls recovered well to go in at HT just 3 points down 1-6 to 1-9, Colm Byrne the chief scorer with 1-5. During the 2nd half, we had a mini purple patch with 3-in-a-row from play, the pick of which was a fine high catch and point from Simon and although we never dominated Syls found themselves just a point in arrears with 6 minutes to go and all to play for.
Good luck to Stephen Cunningham and the Dublin U21s in Tullamore against Tipperary today.
st sylvesters 3-15 v ballyboden st endas 0-0 I'll credit Keith with the headline, you may be sure Boden have and will give us the same from time to time. Monday night in broomfield brought ballyboden to the heart of sylvesters home ground and this time it was bodens hearts broken,it started on the whistle with syls winning the first throw in and that set the tone for the night as syls put on a majestic display of fast attacking football and hard defending,
AFL1 St Sylvesters 0-13 Templeogue Synge St 0-06 A very solid half back line of Ronan, Collie Mc and Scrappy and mid field of Shane and Ross laid the foundatiopn for our first win of the year. Facing a cold strong wind in the first half we dominated and led by 7 to three at the break and it could have been more. We were slow to get on top in the second half, Synge St getting back to two points before we took ove and finished with five on the trot, Foy and Garry looking for goals on a few occasions.
I think we fileded 10 teams in juvenile hurling between Bridgefield and the Castle this morning from U8 to U11. I watched some U9 against Craobh Ciaran and there was some lovely hurlers on show. I watched the second half of an excellent and highly competitive U11 game against a fine Naomh Marnóg outfit. Super stuff that anyone who likes hurling would enjoy. It would be nice to get pictures and reports. It was great to see some of our senior hurlers out helping and it would be great also to see more of our hurling fraternity out supporting, we have some great players and coaches coming through.
The 10s won their A game over Ballyboden St Endas in Bridgefiled this morning, no mean feat any day at any grade as Boden are the real power house of Dublin Hurling. The 10s have been concentrating on skills recently with help from a few of the senior hurlers and it seems to be paying off. Well done to Will and Peter and all involved. Weeks 2 of the Syls U10 Freestyle hurling took place on Friday 10th April.

I see where Dave Billings has passed away. I was only chatting to him in Broomfield on Saturday evening he cycled out to watch the senior game, I was pucking on the same pitch and he stopped to chat and asked was I still playing away. He was even captured in one of the photos above the right shoulder of No 2. Always said hello, RIP. Hilary Murray-Hession
Dublin GAA is shocked to hear the sudden passing of Dave Billings, St Vincents and Dublin stalwart of many years. As recently as last Saturday he was in Broomfield at our senior football game and we exchanged the usual pleasentaries - he had a dig at Pat and Dan (I stayed out of his range) as he cycled by. Anybody who ever kicked or pucked a ball in Dublin will have a fond memory of Dave Billings and we are much the poorer for his passing. The lads at St Sylvesters would like to pay our condolences to Dave's family and friends, he was a great character.
On behalf of the organising commitee of last Saturdays race night can I please thank all those that supported the event on the night, a big thank you to all the sponsors that took out ads in the program and sponsored races, to all those that purchased horses and jockeys and to Dec Hetherton and all the bar staff a huge thank you for helping make the night go off so well.
