Echo Sport preview edition 17 September
By Simon Walsh
There’s only one place to start in this week’s Echo Sport, and that’s the All-Ireland Final on Sunday. Dublin welcome Kerry to the capital, and we speak to Round Towers man and Dubs manager Jim Gavin and Templeogue Synge Street’s Denis Bastick ahead of the big match.
Staying with GAA, and there are reports on the Minor B Football clash between Round Towers and Thomas Davis and the Minor D tie that saw St Pat’s of Palmerstown take on St Mary’s, while we also have news of a very successful weekend for two Ballyboden Junior Hurling teams.
In soccer, Echo Sport Editor Stephen Leonard chats to St Patricks Athletic’s Ian Bermingham about the EA Sports Cup Final this Saturday, and there is a whole host of reports from games, including Arthur Griffith Park Ladies, Belgard Athletic and Castle Park, Sacred Heart and Crumlin United, and Kilnamangh O35’s against Lazio FC.
Away from the round ball games, there is news of managerial changes for Three Rock Rovers men’s team and at Loreto Hockey, while we have all the action from the Templeogue Tennis Club Championship Finals.
Among the other bits of news, is the remarkable story of Kate Callaghan who is this week competing at the World Championship and Trial Des Nations in Spain, which is a competition that sees riders attempt to conquer mountainous terrain on a specialised motorcycle.
Finally, in martial arts there is news of yet more success for South Dublin Taekwondo’s Jack Woolley, and we also have the latest on Jenny Egan who was competing at the IFC Canoe Marathon World Championships.
As always, if we have missed anything then please let us know, and don’t forget you can subscribe to the Echo newspaper online to read all the latest local news and sport on your mobile, tablet or pc.
