Inter County Update:
Congratulations to the Dublin U16’s on their All Ireland semi-final win over Galway. Dublin will now play Cork in the All -Ireland final which will be a repeat of the 2013 final on Sunday August 31st. Venue and time will be confirmed by Croke Park in due course.

Dublin seniors play Kerry this Saturday August 23rd in the TG4 All Ireland quarter final. The exact venue is still to be confirmed. However Croke Park has named both Nenagh and Birr as possible venues. Throw in time is 12.30 and the game will be broadcast live on TG4.
A reminder that our Juvenile Autumn schedule of fixtures will be getting underway on the weekend of the 29th, 30th and 31st of August therefore we recommend that all clubs mentors liaise with their respective club registrars to verify and check that their panel of players are registered.
Lace up for a Cure Campaign:
Dublin LGFA is urging all Dublin clubs to play their part and get involved with the “Lace Up For A Cure” campaign by purchasing Breast Cancer Ireland’s – PINK LACES.
Laces are available through www.breastcancerireland.com they are priced at €5 each with a total of €4.70 going directly to fund Breast Cancer Ireland’s pioneering research programmes. Clubs can order their pink laces on a sale or return basis from BCI so there is no financial outlay on clubs.
The Dublin LGFA club that sells the greatest number of PINK LACES will WIN a coaching session for a Juvenile Club Team of their choice with members of the Dublin Senior Squad.
Competition ends at 5pm on the 5th of September 2014
