I only learnt of the scale of the U8 training for boys and girls on Wednesday evenings when watching the ladies game and wondered what the racket was in the next field - maybe 120 u8s playing football, hurling and girls games. Quite a sight, very impressive.
St Sylvesters GAA club were well represented at the 2010 Dublin Community Games Finals held in Santry Stadium on Sat/Sun last as the Malahide team had one of its most successful years ever. As the tired athletes adjourned to the clubhouse on Sunday evening they could be proud of the fact that their efforts had helped Malahide to achieve 3rd place in Dublin in the overall award . .
St Sylvesters Under 9 hurlers lined out against Scoil Uí Conaill in the Castle grounds on Saturday morning for the second last league game of the season.
So how does Ciaran do it - yet another scorcher for our annual Mini Leagues Finals. Record crowd, 32 football teams, 16 hurling (8 under 9s, very impressive), 20 games, lots of mammies, daddies and grandparents and friends made this yet another great day out for Sylvesters and Malahide and some of the skills on display, both football and hurling were first class. Kudos to all who participated, organized and helped.
Saturday April 24th was a day to mark down for the young footballers of St Sylvesters -every pitch in Malahide was filled to capacity with young footballers showcasing their talents. First up at 10am was the U8’s who hosted a blitz with Whitehall and Na Fianna as the opposition – the Syls Lads won both their matches and followed it up with coke, crisps and a Dublin County blitz medal.
Syls newest hurling team made their debut on Saturday at Rush.
