It’s Championship season in Dublin GAA, and there is news of Ballyboden’s Senior Football Championship clash with Kilmacud Crokes and Lucan Sarsfields’ tie with St Pat’s of Palmerstown.

Added to that we have all the latest from Thomas Davis’ encounter with Naomh Mearnog, and news of success for the St Jude’s Junior D footballers.

In soccer, we were busy covering games over the weekend, including Booth Road Ladies’ DWSL Junior Shield Final, while we have round-ups from several other matches.

Away from the ball games, there is news of great success for local motorsport racers, including Rathcoole’s Aaron MacHale, Firhouse’s Niall Murray, and Lucan’s Brendan Fitzgerald.

As always there are plenty more snippets of local sporting news across all codes, and if we have missed anything please do contact us and we will do our best to get them in for next week.
