Very proud of the girls last Saturday who lost a real cracking final by one point to Na Fianna after coming back from 8 points down at one stage and missing 4 starters ( thanks to Aoife, Caoimhe and Leah from U14s for stepping up to fill gap ) - and what a touch of real class from Na Fianna coach for taking off one of their players when one of ours got sin binned for what he felt was a very harsh call - well done Derek and congrats to your girls they are a credit to you.
Congratulations to the Syls Gaelic4Mothers team back in the National Blitz which we co-hosted again this year with neighbours Naomh Marnóg. Maybe Dee or Keith can tell us a little more about this greatest of sports days. If you've never seen G4M take a look at the attached video, what a movement. Peter sent a link to some brilliant pictures and also said that Croke Park said 'Syls were the best supported and had the best fun vibe for the day. The atmosphere around the slys pitch was electric'
Despite the inclement weather conditions, Broomfield was a buzz of activity on Saturday the 24th September as over a thousand players participated in the Ladies All Ireland 7's, jointly hosted by Syls and Mearnogs for the 13th time. Visiting teams were most appreciative of our fine facilities and the club contribution.
Sinead Aherne has been outstanding for Dublin this season finishing the championship as the Dub's top scorer with a mighty tally of 6-33 to her name. Aherne a four times All Star has long been acknowledged as one of the top forwards in Ladies football This was inveterate this season with the St Sylvester’s ace amassing 5-13 from play while converting an impressive 1-20 from dead ball situations. Will we ever forget that last minute free against Mayo!

Dublin just about made it into the All Ireland Ladies Football final at Breffni Park on Saturday, thanks to a last kick of the game free converted from distance and a difficult angle by player of the match Sinead Aherne. After an opening twenty minutes dominated by Dublin, who led at that stage by 8 points, they went into defensive mode for the last 10 minutes of the half and led by just 6 points at half time.
Winter training is the toughest: wind, rain, mud. MAS (Maximum Aerobic Speed) runs until every muscle burns. Work during the day. Gym sessions after, deadlifts, pull-ups, press-ups, squat jumps, burpees and mountain climbers past the burn. Pushing bodies through exhaustion for passion and pride. It's worth it on game day, travelling with the team, the satisfaction of putting on the county jersey, representing your county, getting in the zone, surrounded by teammates running out to...
Dublin Ladies got a scare in the All Ireland quarter final v Donegal and, while Donegal certainly put it up to Dublin, the Dubs were largely responsible for the predicament they found themselves in. They should have been well ahead at half time but instead were a goal behind, due mainly to lots of shocking passing errors and a few bad shooting misses as well as conceding a soft goal through a mix-up between full back and keeper. In the end, they won 1-13 to 2-7.
Heading into Saturday's TG4 All Ireland QF versus Donegal, Dublin will be looking to four times All Star forward Sinead Aherne to continue to hit the form she has shown so far this season. Aherne leads the Dublin score chart with 2-18 (24) having played in all four of Dublin's Leinster championship victories. Lyndsey Davey is closing in on Aherne's tally with 2-11 while Carla Rowe and Nicole Owens are on 2-8 apiece in joint third spot.
Evening Herlad Player of the Month for July for her display in the Leinster Final. Congratulations to the Syls Ladies section blazing a trail on the National stage.
The Dublin minor girls just missed out in a grandstand last quarter against defending champions Cork in the All Ireland Final in Longford. Syls Danielle Lawless scored a point and was involved in a few more for the Dubs who trailed by 8 points at one stage but battled back very gamely and were a little unlucky not to draw level in ythe last few minutes. See the report attached from the LGFA website. Alsio a few pictures of Danielle from the Armagh semifinal.
