Great turnout for Dave McGrath Memorial

Ref Danny Harrington called a dubious draw in a lively junior hurling game to remember former Syls star Dave McGrath who died suddenly in 2012. There was a great crowd at Malahide Castle and thanks to Lusk Round Towers who provided the opposition. Danny O'Connor will tell the full story, well done to all, a nice turnout of lads who played with Dave. Nice note attached from the McGrath family and a few pictures from Bernard.

The extended Magrath family wish to thank sincerely all who participated in and attended yesterdays friendly in David's honour.
We are deeply humbled and appreciative of the great support from all concerned.
Particular thanks to Danny O'Connor who arranged the event; the Executive who approved it; Ronan Hayes and Round Towers Lusk who accepted the challenge; Danny Harrington who refereed in a very professional and fair way; team-mates/club members and others from Dublin Minor and Fingal panels of the era; mentors past and present and Jim Wardick who looked after the pitch, nets and ressing rooms.
A big thanks to family and friends who continued their much appreciated support. To Gwen O'Connor, Mary Wardick and all other contributors who supplied and served the catering in the club our heartfelt thanks. They provided a very welcoming conclusion to a very proud day in David's memory. Ar dheis De go raibh a Anam. As he would have said "Thanks for comin".
