Hi all,

Congratulations to the Mens 1sts who triumphed in horrible conditions last weekend in their all important IHL match against Cork Harlequins. The 4-1 win (with goals from David Robinson(2),Jamie Tobin and Phil Powderly) gained them an all important bonus point to keep them in the running in Pool B of the IHL. The next game see's the lads hosting Instonians on March 12th so keep the date free in your diaries as your support will be needed!

This weekend the 1sts are taking part in the National Indoor Finals with a chance for the winners to represent Ireland in Europe. Best of luck to Trevor and all the lads involved.

After a weekend off last weekend the Mens 2nds take on Three Rock 2s on Saturday and will be looking for revenge no doubt after their loss in the Irish Junior Cup. That match is on in Old Alex at 13.30.

This weekend is a big one for the Ladies 1sts with a league match on Saturday against Navan in Claremont Rd acting as a warm up for the trip to Tipp on Sunday for the quarter finals of the Irish Hockey Challange. The Ladies 2s have a weekend off following their 4-1 win on Tuesday eve against Botanics to move them into the semi finals of their leinster cup.

Following the ladies match in Claremont the 6ths
play Smithfield at 13:30 - yet to win a league match the 6ths will be hoping for a turn around in their fortunes!

The Mens 3rds suffered a close defeat last weekend going down 2-1 to James Gate, this sat they travel to play Weston away at 2pm.

The 4ths were unlucky last weekend in their top of the table clash losing 3-1 to Skerries who now take a 5 point lead in Division 6. The lads take on bottom of the table Navan in Claremont at 3pm this sat.
