Ball Wall unveiled - another good day for Syls

At a short ceremony in Broomfield last Sunday we unveiled our new Ball Wall training facility. It's been 6 years in the making but it looks like it was worth waiting for and will be a great addition to the club. Andy Kettle brought the Dublin Hurling silverware and gave a nice talk to dedicate the wall to Tim Stack, one of the men who brought hurling to Malahide and whose family gave a generous donation that got us started on this development. Andrew Stack was very impressive in the way he remembered many of the early hurling men. Syls Chairman Mel McIntyre thanked all those who supported the effort including our local politicians who worked hard for our cause, Fingal CoCo, The National Lotto and particularly Brendan Bannigan, Mick Stuart and Eddie Sullivan who learned a lot more than they bargained for about land leasing, planning laws and other aspects of development in post Tiger Ireland.
