Fundraiser for Fr Felix Bannigan

Fundraiser for Fr Felix Bannigan

Brendan Bannigan (who, with Mick Stuart worked for 6 years to bring about the hurling wall which is such a great facility for Syls) and Francine (our PRO for about the same 6 or 6 years) ran a fundraiser for Brendan's brother Fr Felix Bannigan. The dance and raffle were last night and Brendan would like to thank all his friends in the club who supported and attended. Just because you missed it does not mean you can't still buy a ticket and I have even attached a Big Tom piece so you won't feel left out(there was a big Monaghan gang at the dance). Fr Felix has been working with the poorest in Nicaragua for 30 years in the same spirit as some of the greatest Irish people who give so selflessly to help others. Felix always visits Syls with Brendan and his lovely sisters when in Ireland and he's a smashing guy.

Club position re Bridgefield and Broomfield

Dear Club Members, Further to the Club’s communication on July 5th in regards to proposed Bridgefield Redevelopment I would like to clarify and reassure members about our continued use of Bridgefield. St Sylvesters will continue to have use of 2 pitches after the proposed Development on which our Juvenile teams play. An equivalent large pitch will be retained and will be supplemented with a Go-Games sized pitch. The playing surface of the large pitch will be subject to a badly needed upgrade as part of this programme.

The Team of '96 - 20 years on

The Team of '96 - 20 years on

Brian Talty reminded me to mention that it was 20 years since Syls won our only ever Dublin Senior Football Championship. I took a look at my archives, courtesy of Brian Colgan a few years ago, and was struck by the number of lads still very involved in coaching, some still playing, a great tribute to St Sylvesters.. Have a root through the pictures and news clippings, pretty cool stuff. I think Talty said he was going to buy a pint some evening, maith fear, mines a Guinness.

Facility improvements in Broomfield

Facility improvements in Broomfield

Led by Liam Foley a small group of volunteers gave up their time for the 2nd Saturday in a row and tackled the hedging , balls stops on pitch2 and our sponsors signs on the pitch 1. Liam brought some machinery for height access to tie up the ball stop nets. The lads also tidied up the hedging allowing much easier access if any balls end up in the ditch. They also removed the rubbish from the dressing rooms and Liam has committed to do this on a weekly basis.

Paul McBride just pipped in British Amateur Open at the R&A

Paul McBride just pipped in British Amateur Open at the R&A

Wow, what an pity, won the quarter final this morning 2 and 1, down by two with two to play in the semi-final, leveled at 18, level at 19, lost by one shot on the 20th. Obviously another serious Irish golfing prospect and the pride of Malahide. Paul played football and hurling (and often seem sporting his Ui Fhaile shirt) with Syls and Scoil Iosa on the same team as Michael Shiels, Jack Hazely, Eoghan Hammill, Collie Byrne et al, managed by his dad Dave and Fergus Byrne over the years. Dave is coaching our Inter hurlers at the moment also. Congratulations Paul and Dave and Trish, wonderful achievement and obviously plenty more to come. A win at the Open would have qualified Paul for the Masters at Agusta which I hear he parr'ed recently.
