Reports on all Ladies and Girls teams
Peter Hickey copied me with this lovely memory of the girls exploits in 2012. I thought I saw it in the clubhouse at one time but it disappeared again. Anyway, a great memory and a strong reminder that you can go and do it all again girls, maith sibh.
Congratulations to the Dublin Ladies on a determined display in Croke Park today but unfortunately it was just not enough to dethrone the all conquering Cork. Niamh McEvoy led my example up front, must have been her best ever display for Dublin, Nicole Owens foraged hard for the decisive opening after her introduction, it would have been great to see Nicole get more ball in space to create a greater threat. It was a great honour for St Sylvesters that our players again contributed to the biggest event in Ladies Sport in Europe. Hard luck girls, I felt the transition from defence to attack was just a little too ponderous to threaten the Cork girls.

On a day dominated by an epic Dublin Mayo semi final at Croke Park, Dublin Ladies qualified to play Cork in the All Ireland Final. Niamh McEvoy had a very lively first half and Nicole Owens came in late. Congratulations to all and lets look forward to a big Dublin crowd at the final
The ladies match is now switched to starting time of 2.00 p.m. Just perfect , start in Parnell Park where our club girls are playing, and then saunter up to Croke Park for the Dublin v Mayo replay. The Jackies take on Armagh in the All Ireland semi-final in Parnell Park at 2.00pm. What an achievement for a medium size club to have two players on the county squad. Both started and had fine games in the quarter final victory against Monaghan. Lets support the girls in numbers. No long treck to Birr involved, just a short hop to Donnycarney. Let's make it an evenIng out for Syls and show our true club spirit. U16s free . Students and senior citizens €5 and adults €10.
Congrats to Niamh McEvoy and Nicole Owens both of whom featured in the starting line up for Dublin against Ulster rivals Monaghan in Saturday's quarter final in Clones. Dublin had a strong lead by half time having notched up 1.07 to Monaghan's 0.4.
Congrats to Cliodhna Hamill from our Ladies Minor team who was chosen to represent Dublin in the recent U-17 Inter County blitz. Cliodhna also had the honour of co-captaining the Dublin team. Her team won all of their group games and were narrowly pipped by Carlow in the semi-final
Dublin Ladies take on Monaghan in Clones tomorrow Saturday at 14.15 in the All Ireland Quarter Final. Our best wishes go to Nicole Owens and Niamh McEvoy and the Dublin girls hoping to repeat the success of 2009 in the same venue.
Syls Junior Girls put in a great performance last night in the Championship V Ballyboden Wanders in Ballyboden. While the Malahide girls were very short on numbers and did not win this game it was probably the best game they ever played. Syls playing with the wind ended up 3-7 to 0-5 behind at half time. Ironically despite the scoreline Syls had actually played some good football in the first half.
Congrats to the Dublin Ladies winning their fourth consecutive Leinster over a competitive Westmeath yesterday at Carlow. Niamh McEvoy contributed a goal and many assists and Nicole came off the bench to sore a point.
All Ireland U16 Semi Final Wed 15th of July 2015 McDonagh Park, Nenagh Although the Dublin girls lost, Danielle Lawless scored 1-1 and was awarded a penalty when taken down en-route to goals.
Ladies Senior Division 1 Our ladies put in a great second half against a stronger Na Fianna in Broomfield last evening. Fair play to the junior players for stepping up, especially Jackie Costelloe for her brave goal keeping, Carol Hickey showing the energy of girls half her age, Orla who took a nasty knock, hope you are ok. Niamh Harney worked tirelessly in the middle, Cliodhna Hamill and Lea Harold defended well and everyone on the field worked really hard. Missing our county players to county action and other senior players due to vacation and injury is a heavy load to carry but great credit to the girls for their very spirited display. It's a very young team with a great future and it was great to see support on the line.
Niamh McEvoy gave an exhibition of providing the "link" between the Dublin defense and attack yesterday. Niamh operating from the Number 14 position was the key target for kicked balls into the full forward line, with her quick hands Niamh transferred the ball to her colleagues who made intelligent runs to support.
The Junior Ladies Team had their first win in the League after a great game in Broomfield. 3-9 to 3-8 was final score with a one point win V Ballyboden Wanderers. This was a great time to get the first official win as they are home V Clan Na Gael in the Championship next Wednesday 8 July 2015. We want to thank Des Rainey and some of his U16 Team for helping us out. Eddie Ann & Declan Syls Abu
Never an elasy assignment to play division 1 football at any age and congratulations to Ian McComish and Donal McCarthy and their team. They got promoted to Div 1 this year, big step up but girls improved with each match peaking with a narrow defeat to Na Fianna in last match of season. Also congratulations to Caitlin Guiden who represented Dublin at U14 in the recent Leinster Final against Meath.
Best wishes to Caitlin and the Dublin U14 girls in the Leinster Final this Saturday in Clane 3.15pm.
Congrats to Syls' Danielle Lawless and the Dublin U-16 team who defeated near neighbours Meath in the Leinster final last weekend. Danielle has had a fine campaign with the U -16s this year. Dublin have now secured a sixth successive Leinster title at this level, no mean feat for this young squad and their management team.
Congratulations to Niamh McEvoy for being included at Number 8 in the Leinster selection to play Dublin in a game to mark the official openeing of Skerries Harps new clubhouse at 2 pm this Sunday. Nicole Owens starts at Number 15 for Dublin. Ray Boyne is part of the Leinster management. Congratulations to Skerries Harps on achieving this development and we wish yu every success
Calling all Syls supporters. Next Saturday Dublin and Cork ladies meet in the Division 1 League final in Parnell Park at 3.45. This is the first occasion that Dublin has reached the Division 1 final.
Timmy, Nuala & I had the pleasure of managing the Girls u16 squad this season. We didn’t participate in the League and only came together during the summer for a ‘crack’ at the Division 2 u16 Championship. As soon as the Leagues finished we got a group of 21 players together and started our preparation. All through the summer the numbers attending each training session were really encouraging. A number of practice matches (including a memorable trip to St Laurences of Kildare) and we were ready for Championship.
Minor Championship Shield Division 1 Final Venue Chanel/Parnell’s Ground Sunday 17th November 2013. St Sylvester’s 2-12 Ballyboden St. Enda’s 2-13 Mary O’Connor of the Dublin Ladies Board said that this was the best game she had seen all year and anyone who was there would have to agree. I saw Mick Stuart out at the game, always a great supporter of the Ladies game and I’m sure he would agree
After 9 years together the Syls. Minor Girls team will play their last match together as a team in the Division 1 Championship Shield Final V Ballyboden St Endas (date & venue yet to be decided) It is appropriate that their last match should be against this Ballyboden Team who won the Championship almost every year between 2005-2013. Ballyboden also won the Division 1 All Ireland Féile title in 2009. During this period Syls also won a title each year including 1 Championship, 3 Championship Shield titles, and 2 League titles, as well as runners up in the League twice.
Result Scoil Iosa Malahide 0-9 Gorey Community School 1-5 Today Tuesday 11 March 2014 Scoil Iosa Senior Ladies won the Leinster Gaelic Football School Championship against Gorey Community School in Bray Emmet's Ground in Wicklow. Scoil Iosa 0-9 Gorey CS 1-5. This was a very tough game right up to the final whistle. In this Leinster Championship because of the high number of teams in Dublin, winning Dublin gave Scoil Iosa a passage straight into the Leinster Final. Scoil Iosa won five games in Dublin before winning the Dublin Title last week. Gorey CS on the other hand had to travel around the Provence with one game against Offaly opposition actually played over the Provincial border in Tipperary
Congratulations from all in Syls to the Scoil Iosa Girls on winning the Dublin Senior Ladies Schools Final against St MacDaras Community College, Templeogue. After a very tense first half and the teams level at the break the girls had to work hard in the second half to secure victory and a Leinster Final clash against Gorey CS on Tuesday 11th March at 1pm in Emmets GAA Grounds in Bray.
The Syls Minor Girls Championship Shield Final V Ballyboden St. Endas is listed for 2.30p.m. on Sunday 17th November 2013 at Chanel (Parnells Ground in Coolock). This is our last game as a team after 9 seasons together (half a lifetime for the girls). Please come out and give them a bit of support.
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.
Our Senior Ladies footballers got off to a good start with a Cup win over Clontarf in their first match of the season on a score line of 0-9 to 1-4. With a mixture of experience, recent graduates from Minor ranks and a sprinkling of under age players, this team played an attractive brand of football tutored by new manager Dave McEvoy who took over only last week. There were impressive performances from some of the older players like Jackie Costello playing in goal, unbelievably for the first time,
