Dungarvan Gaa Notes 04th Sept

INDOOR HURLING
Last Wednesday we had Mt Sion visit us in the latest round of the Minor Championship, after shipping a heavy defeat against Ballygunner 2 nights previous we feared the worst for our lads as Mt Sion came with a reputation of been a fine team, but with a changed emphasis we started very well and were ahead at half time by 2 points, however Mt Sion switched gear in the 2nd half and came away easy winners in the end as we seemed to run out of steam. However this was a much better performance  by our minors who have 1 more game away to De La Salle in the league section of the Championship
U13 HURLING (picture)
Last Thursday our under 13 team travelled to Bushey Park to play Cappoquin in the Western Semi Final of the Hurling Championship, this was a wonderful display by our lads and the fruits of all them training sessions during the long winter nights are beginning to pay off. We are awaiting confirmation of a date for the Western Final as well as the Opposition.
U16 HURLING
Our u16 team headed to Lismore last Friday to take on the local team in the latest round of their Championship and came away with a very poor defeat and to make matters worse 2 of our lads picked up some serious injuries and will be a big loss for the rest of the championship.Best wishes to Brendan Collins and Wayne O Donnell. It is looking like we might need favours from other teams if we are to qualify for the semi finals of this Championship.

About Dungarvan GAA Club

Dungarvan GAA Club was affiliated to the Gaelic Athletic Association on June the 1st 1885 - the first club in Waterford to do so. Through thick and thin, good times and bad, we have stayed the pace, and to-day we are the oldest - and I dare say the best - club in the county. We stand uniquely alone as the only club in the Decies to have won county championships in every grade from Under 12 up to senior in both codes.
