Leading by only 1-06 to 1-04 at the break, Dublin had to dig deep against the hosts who reeled off 4 unanswered scores, and dig deep they did. They finished in determined fashion to run out comfortable winners.
Wednesday April 5th 2023
Longford 0-10 Dublin 0-08
Leinster Minor Ladies Football Championship
An unlucky start for the Dublin minors who came out on the wrong side of a mighty championship tussle in Pearse Park. Longford who fielded no less than ten of their winning Leinster minor squad from last season edged ahead in the dying minutes of the game to claim three valuable championship points.
A single score separated the two teams at half time as Dublin led 0-05 to 0-04. The game was level on four occasions with the home side holding out to seal the victory. Dublin will regroup quickly as they turn their attentions to this Wednesday’s clash with Meath which is provisionally penciled in for 7:30pm in Skyrne GAA club
Dublin 1-15 Louth 1-10
Electric Ireland Leinster Minor Football Championship Round 2
Dublin finished on the front foot before eventually seeing off a determined Louth by five points in their Leinster Minor Football Championship Group 2 Round 1 encounter at Parnell Park last Wednesday evening.
The Dubs looked well placed at half time as they enjoyed a six-point advantage but there had been promising signs for the visitors throughout the first-half and it was of scant surprise that they fought their way back after the break.
Louth managed to trim their deficit to a solitary point by the 47th minute but crucially, they never managed to draw level, allowing the Dubs sufficient breathing space to regroup and finish the game on a positive note.

Electric Ireland Minor Hurling Championship Round 3

Saturday April 8th 2023
Antrim 1-11 Dublin 1-06
Very National Camogie League Division 3B
Jimmy Greville’s Dublin Intermediate Camogie Panel will be disappointed after the weekend’s 1-11 to 1-06 defeat to Antrim. Had they come away from Glen Rovers with a win they’d be facing Clare this weekend in the Division 3B final. But sadly the girls will have to settle for 3rd place in the division table.
It was all to play for on Saturday but Antrim were the stronger side in the opening exchanges holding Dublin to a single point in the first half. Dublin were much improved on the restart but Antrim had built a 1-07 to 0-01 lead up that was going to be tough to claw back. In the end Dublin outscored Antrim by 1-05 to 0-04 in the secnd session falling 0-05 short.
Dublin 1-19 Galway 1-17
O’Neills.com Leinster U20 Hurling Championship Round 1
Dublin’s U20 Hurlers showed true grit in their opening Leinster Championship tie to beat Galway by a 2 point margin on Saturday.
Trailing by 1-11 to 0-08 at half time the Dubs came out fighting on the restart. Ultimately a Jamie Conroy goal half way through the second session was a huge turning point, narrowing the margin between the sides to 2 points. with 2 minutes of normal time to go Dublin had levelled thanks to a point from the goal scorer. A Diarmuid O’Dulaing point put the Dubs in front for the first time in the game. Conroy would get the final score of the game at the death to give Dublin the victory.
Sunday April 9th 2023
Waterford 3-09 Dublin 0-02
Electric Ireland Minor Camogie Championship Round 4
Dublin’s Minor Camogie Panel suffered another defeat in the All Ireland Championship, this time at the hands of Waterford. They only registered 2 points in the game with Waterford scoring 3-09.

Dublin 8-17 Wexford 0-07
Leinster U16 Ladies Football Championship Round 3
Dublin finished off the group stages of their Leinster Ladies Football championship with a convincing victory over Wexford. To their credit Wexford kept battling to the very end of this contest and are a more talented outfit than the scoreboard would indicate.
Dublin showed added confidence in their play than in their previous two outings and worked well as a unit, sticking to their game plan and taking the right option in front of the posts. Twelve different players got on the Dubs scoresheet an indication of their good team play and decision making up front.
Kildare defeated Meath by 2-13 to 4-5 to book their place alongside Dublin in the provincial A final on May 6th.

Kildare 6-08 Dublin 1-06
Leinster U16B Camogie Championship
Disappointment for the Dublin U16B Camogie panel as their Leinster journey came to an end today losing to Kildare by 6-08 to 1-06. They trailed by 3-03 to 1-04 at the half time break still in with a chance but Kildare hit another 3-05 in the second half with Dublin only recording an additional 2 points to their tally.
Dublin had picked up wins over Laois and Meath in the competition only losing one game to Kilkenny by 2-11 to 1-06. But they’ve performed well in this competition and can look towards the All Ireland championship now.
