Clare 3-09 Dublin 0-11
Very National Camogie League Division 3B

Dublin Intermediate Camogie Manager Jimmy Greville may feel disappointed this weekend as his panel suffered defeat to Clare on the road. However in the grand scheme of things that’s only 1 loss from three games. Dublin have been impressive to date in this competition so they’ll take this loss on the chin and regroup agad of their final round trip to Antrim in 2 weeks time.

Clare are three for three and this was always going to be an opportunity for Greville to see where is side are ahead of what will be a busy championship series. But a win in the final round will keep Dublin on course for promotion to Division 3A.

Dublin 4-18 Offaly 0-19
Electric Ireland Leinster Minor Hurling Championship

A strong start and an even stronger finish proved massive as Dublin got their Leinster Minor Hurling Championship campaign off to a winning start Offaly by eleven points at Parnell Park on yesterday afternoon.

The Dubs went into the break with twelve point lead but Offaly showed their battling qualities to dominate possession in the second-half, reducing their arrears to just three points by the 53rd minute.

Crucially, Dublin didn’t concede a goal during Offaly’s supremacy and had enough in the tank to finish the game on a high, all thanks to two well taken goals in injury time from Darragh Kilduff and Conor Newton.

Clare 1-10 Dublin 1-10
Very National Camogie League Division 1A

Despite today’s result, Dublin will be relegated to Division 1B next year. But their progress across the campaign resulted in a 1-10 to 1-10 draw against Clare at Cusack Park. They needed an eight point or more win to send the Banner down instead, but it wasn’t to be.

It was a first point on the board for Gerry McQuaid’s side, who led by 0-8 to 0-6 when Eimear Kelly struck for a goal for the home team. The Dubs battled back and while it wasn’t enough to secure top-tier status in the League, last year’s All-Ireland quarter-finalists showed enough to suggest they can be competitive again in the championship.

Dublin 3-05 Offaly 0-06
Leinster U16A Camogie Championship
Kilkenny 2-11 Dublin 1-06
Leinster U16B Camogie Championship

Mixed fortunes in the Leinster U16 Camogie Championship. But after 2 defeats in the A competition from Wexford and Laois, Rachel Rogers panel finally rose to the occasion, beating Offaly this afternoon by 3-05 to 0-06. Two goals from Niadh Mooney and one dropped in from a free by Orla Keighran were the difference in a tough battle at Grangegorman.

It puts Dublin in a better position and it was probably the result the group needed mentally as they target the All Ireland Series later this year. Their final game will be a tough one as they face Kilkenny, but it will now be one the girls will relish with their heads up after today’s win.

Elsewhere Conor Haugh’s Dublin U16B panel suffered an unlucky 2-11 to 1-06 defeat at the hands of Kilkenny at John Lockes GAA club in Callan. All isn’t lost though as they’ve recorded a huge win over Laois and as their game against Meath was postponed they’re still in with a chance of silverware.

Dublin 0-16 Louth 1-06
Allianz National Football League Division 2

Dublin’s short stay in Division 2 of the football league ended today as they beat Louth to secure promotion back to Division 1 in 2024. And more importantly they’ll now have a rematch with Derry for the Division honours before beginning preperations for the Championship.

On a day that saw Paul Mannion return, and the surprise of Stephen Cluxton being named on Dublin’s bench, the boys in blue put in a convincing second half performance to see off the challenge of Mickey Harte’s Louth who could very well have qualified for promotion had they been victorious today.

Only 1 point seperated the sides at the break but Dublin reeled off five without reply on the restart. A Liam Jackson goal for Louth kept the game competitive but a strong finish from Dublin saw them over the line on a very memorable day for Dublin football.

Dublin 5-08 Waterford 0-07
LIDL National Football League Division 1

Orlagh Nolan struck a magnificent hat-trick of goals at Parnell Park as Dublin rounded off their Lidl National Football Division One campaign with a victory over Waterford.

A TG4 All Star winner at left half-back in 2021, Nolan started at centre-forward and displayed a midas touch in attack to ensure Dublin recorded a third-place finish in the final standings. Kate Sullivan also helped herself to 1-4 for the Metropolitans and while Kellyann Hogan registered 0-6 for their opponents, Waterford had to be content with fifth spot in Division One for 2023.

Dublin led by 3-05 to 0-03 at the interval leaving Waterford an uphill struggle on the restart. To their credit they rose to the challenge. But Nolan’s goals, added to by Kate Sullivan and Ellen Gribben made their task nigh on impossible.

Dublin 0-11 Galway 1-14
Electric Ireland Minor Camogie Championship

A disappointing third loss for Dublin’s Minor Camogie panel this afternoon, but a very solid performance against a good Galway side. It must also be noted that Galway are top of the table in the Minor A competition with today being their third win on the bounce. But Dublin can be positive after putting in a very impressive shift against tough opposition.

Aoibheann Stokes, Zara Thorne, Anna Thornton and Eimear Kehoe kept the scoreboard lit for Dublin, and all spectating would agree that a goal for the home side would have made this a different game. Credit must go to the girls after only registering 2 points in the opening half. They certainly were the better side on the restart outscoring Galway by 0-09 to 0-06.
