Congratulations to both the Reserve and Senior teams who both recorded excellent wins against the Parnells this weekend. The Reserve team edged a close Championship quarter final by a scoreline of 1-6 to 1-4.

A last kick of the game point from Paul O’Donoghue earned the seniors 20 minutes extra time in the Conway Cup quarter final clash with Parnells at Ruislip. The Towers were able to take control of the second period of extra time and ran out winners by a scoreline of 4-22 to 4-11.

The players now head over to Dublin to take part in the St Judes All Ireland sevens tournament this weekend.

St Dympnas

The Seniors continued their good recent form with another impressive performance in the Fr O’Hanlon Cup win over Glen Rovers in Oxhey Park on Sunday last. They ran out 0-11 to 0-09 winners and led for most of the game. Cormac Healy top scored for Dympnas with 8 points in Full Forward. This puts us into our second Final which is a great achievement after a difficult year and builds a platform for 2015.

Best of Luck to Senior Footballer Barry Flanagan who is returning to Fermanagh next week. Barry has been a great servant to the club and we wish him all the best.

Our u14s played in the Herts League Final on Saturday afternoon in Waltham Cross. A young team was well beaten on the day by an impressive St Josephs team but it was a great experience for the team and we hope they can go one better next year.

This coming Saturday our u8s & 12s are taking part in the St.Josephs Club Day in Waltham Cross. Training will take place as usual on Saturday at 3pm for all other age groups at St.Josephs, Gardenia Avenue, Luton.

Tara Camogie

Old rivals Tara and Croydon went head to head on Sunday in Greenford to battle it out for the junior league title. After a very tough 60 minutes Tara emerged victorious by the narrowest of margins.

The final score was 1-3 to 1-2. The low scoring was not a reflection of the intensity of this game as both teams gave the spectators and exciting 60 minutes of Camogie. This was the first time in four years that Tara won the Junior league final. Tara captain, Emer Kelly received the plaque form London Camogie president Ettie Kelly. Both teams meet again next Saturday in the Junior Championship semi-final in what will sure to be another excellent exhibition of Camgoie.
