The Minor Girls had a great win in the Div 1 Minor Championship against Ballyboden St Endas today in Bloomfield Syls 1-9 Ballyboden 0-7. Since we started at U10 in 2005 we have won a trophy every year. We always found Ballyboden very hard to beat. We did beat them in the League by 5 points the year they won the All Ireland Féile in 2009.

Congratulations also to Angela Aherne, Brian Sullivan, Dave McEvoy, Mick, Suzanne, Eddie, Anne, Pat, Declan and all the mentors and committee members who have worked so tirelessly over the years to bring about this achievement. Thanks to Joe Duffy Motors for your support, much appreciated. Thanks to Mick Stuart for the report. Syls Abú.
There was a nail biting finish to this game in the first round of the Championship against Clanna Gael Fontenoy, but it was not the scoreline that caused the angst, Syls winning comfortably in the end by 4-17 to 4-9, it was the light.
Our Senior Ladies footballers continued on their winning way with a convincing win over Clanna Gael on a windy Wednesday evening in Broomfield on a scoreline of 5-11 to 1-8. Highlight of the evening was the 1-6 scoring contribution from Katie Slattery in the first half. But everyone on the field, including the subs that came on in the second half, made a contribution. It is probably unfair to single out individual contributions, as everybody played their part,
St, Maur's 4-5, St. Sylvester's 3-12. Syl's Ladies won this top of the table Cup clash with St. Maur's on Wednesday evening. We were missing our County stars and four other first choice players but put in a spirited if flawed performance to secure top place on goal difference.
The Junior Ladies had their first win tonight in their third game in a close fought challenge game against Na Gaeil Óga (an Irish Language speaking team in Bloomfield. The final score was Syls 5-6 Na Gaeil Oga 4-5. Great to have a win with the first Championship game away to Thomas Davis next Monday. Peter Hickey has promised to send a few photographs.
Syls Minor Girls team had a great start to their league campaign with a wins over St Pats Donabate and Scoil Ui Chonaill. This very young team, only three second year minors on the panel, play a very attractive brand of football matched by great determination. Hopefully they can continue this during the season. Next up is a game at home to Lucan on Saturday next 21st March at 3pm
The Club has given us permission to enter a Junior Ladies Team this year 2014 in the Ladies Junior Football Championship. We are under a little bit of pressure to get all the names in, get them registered and to get the membership before the deadline expires for entering teams. We would appreciate if this notice could be posted onto our website as soon as possible to get the names of the girls in as soon as possible.
The minor girls win again that's 4 matches in a row and three in the league, on Monday on a wet and windy night syls traveled to naomh barròg and the conditions were very bad syls against the wind in the first half started sharp but found it hard to break through the barròg defence and found themselves 2points down but eventually settled and got back level with some smart play and great point taking.half time came and syls came out of the traps firing on all cylinders amazing passing and moving left barròg on the back foot and chasing shadows!
Sinead Aherne and Niamh McEvoy starred for Dublin once again as they beat Galway in the semi final in Mullingar today. Congratulation to all the girls and best of luck in the final against (Cork I think ?) -
Ladies NFL Final The Dublin Ladies were just pipped by Cork by a single point in their first ever National League Final in a cracking game at Parnell Park on Saturday. Great credit is due to the girls and our own Sinead Aherne who had a great second half and Niamh McEvoy who covered every blade of grass. The girls should be very hopefull for the Summer based on this display.
A nice piece from Peter Hickey where Lord Mayor of Dublin Christy Burke honoured the Dublin Ladies Football team, including our own Sinead Aherne, Niamh McEvoy and Nicole Owens.
Dublin Ladies had an easy win over Westmeath in the Leinster semifinal at Portmarnock today on a scoreline of Dublin 7-18, Westmeath 1-7 Sinead Aherne put in another top scoring performance with 2-11, including a well taken penalty and four points from frees.

Caitlin Guiden played for the Dublin u14s in their win over Meath. Niall had a bit of banter with old foe Graham Geragthy but he will have to give us the skinny on that . . .
Every footballer dreams of playing on the hallowed turf of Croke Park getting the opportunity to play for your County in an All -Ireland final is truly a special occasion. On Sunday five of Dublin’s starting fifteen will run out onto the sacred ground for the first time while ten others will make a welcome return to the famous stadium.
