Today was a momentus occasion for the club as it saw 3 Cumann na mBunscol finals take place in which Erin's Isle had representation in each of the 3 matches.

First it was the turn of the camogie girls from Gaelscoil Uí Earcain with players like Ruby Woods, Molly Holder, Aoibhionn Gorman and the likes in the one of the early camogie games. Sadly they came up against strong opposition and it wasn't to be their day but it certainly wasn't for the want of trying.

Then it was a very unique 60 mins or there about as at 2.20pm two matches happening simultaneously. They featured the boys from Gaelscoil Uí Earcain against their challengers from Castleknock whilst on the other pitch the boys from Sacred Heart Ballygall took on their near neighbours from Scoil Mobhi.

Thankfully it was good news for the Gaelscoil as the very strong Isles contingent made it look easy against a fancied Castleknock outfit while running out easy winners. They had outstanding performances right through the park from Goalkeeper to corner forward. The Gorman household were not to be without silverware today as the brothers Tadhgh and Darragh made up for their sister's team's defeat moments earlier helped ably by Molly Holder's brother Tadhgh and the rest of their team mates. It was hard to pick standout performances when so many played their parts in an exceptional victory. A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to all involved.

Alas at the same time on the other pitch in an absolute humdinger of a game, the likes the Moran's (Cian and Shane), Cian O'Hare and Olly Gaffney battled against Scoil Mobhi only to come up short by a single goal with the final score being 2-7 to 1-7.

It was a day that will be long remembered by those in attendance and a day the club can be immensely proud of our young players in each of the 3 teams. It is without doubt a wonderful day for the future stars of Erin's Isle. 

Below is our favourite picture from the day as Niall Carthy, one of our Juvenile mentors and also a teacher in Sacred Heart Ballygall school, took the opportunity to get a group shot of all the Isles boys who featured between the Gaelscoil and Sacred Heart. I'm sure you'll all agree that it would be wonderful to think that this could be a picture of the Erin's Isle Senior Hurling team in the years to come? WHAT THIS SPACE!!!!
