Training times change this week until the summer break. Monday training at 18:30 to 19:30 on Pitch 21 next to Sybil Hill Friday training at 18:30 to 19:30 on Pitch 30 next to Rose Garden.
As you will know we have three fabulous new sets of Clontarf jerseys for each of our squads kindly sponsored by Sherry Fitzgerald - anyone that saw them last Sunday will agree that they look great on the boys. When the weather is good we will arrange for a team photo before one of the matches that we can then provide to everyone.
Each of these sets are numbered team jerseys that will be provided on each match day for the boys - as we need to have these washed after each match we would ask parents if they could co operate and please assist us by taking a set of jerseys to wash - a mentor will arrange for this after every match - we will keep a record of this so that all parents have the opportunity to help out.
Thanks for your help on this.
See details below...
Thanks to everybody for turning up on a freezing cold Sunday for the photo shoot
Just come down to one of our training sessions
Training days are still Monday to Friday but training times are now 18:40 to 19:30
A juvenile member had their bicycle stolen from training at the clubhouse recently. Please pass onto parents and players that bicycles should be locked while attending training or matches.
Please ensure your child has adequate lights - it may be bright when they start training but it is pitch dark when they are finished.
As we have moved to 3 teams from two sets of two teams we have made changes to our Teamer setup. If you are no longer getting teamer messages please let us know.
You should be able to modify your account details if necessary at teamer.net
For hurling please remember hurley, helmet and shin pads. Knuckle protective gloves are also recommended for the non hurley hand (i.e. if you are right handed you need a left handed glove)
We are renting a bus and driver from Finnegans Coaches from 9 am up to 7-8pm on Sunday 28th May. This will carry the 31 boys now confirmed and allow for c15 mentors plus interested parents to travel together. We will be collecting 20 euro per boy and 30 euro per accompanying parent on Sat 10th March. (Based on our expected match ticket prices for the boys and adults to go to the game). Accordingly, can please ensure that you have the ticket money for 10th March?
Many thanks' Seán

Accordingly, can you please respond to the Teamer invite that has been circulated so that we can plan for numbers etc.
This was a fantastic game of football played with skill and passion by the Bulls. The Bulls started with the wind and took some time to find their groove sending a number of balls wide. Nevertheless in midfield Sukpreet Singh and Mark MacCauley got to grips. Singh in particular playing heads up football and passing well. Conor Carolan, Daniel McGovern and Donncha Gallagher were rock solid in defence and aggressively snuffed out attacks. Donal Curran did brilliantly in goals as evidenced by BBSE only getting one point in the first half. Goals had to come and they did with scores from Jamie O'Keeffe, Sukpreet and Donal Óg taking. McCauley also did well with a wonderful sideline kick that beat the 'keeper for another goal. Oisín Devery also took some nice points. While Tarf had built up a solid lead at this stage, we knew the second half would be tougher especially as we had no subs to rest. This was indeed the case. Gallagher went in to midfield and worked really hard. Curran went to the forward line. As we tired BBSE started to take scores and Donal Óg Geraghty was very busy in goals. At one point BBSE coming within two goals of the boys... However the boys were determined not to give up this game and they re asserted themselves with a goal and two points to put it beyond the reach of BBSE. Well done boys on a great game!

Coaching is done on a volunteer basis and the mentors do so as a way to contribute to the community of Clontarf and surrounding areas.
We need more help for the 2016 season. So if you are bored standing on the side line or if you feel that you can make a positive contribution please volunteer to get involved. It is a great way to spend time with your child and be part of the community.
We can do with all the help we can get and don’t worry it only looks like hardwork!
