Breaking News: Purchase of Carmelite Land on Firhouse Road

Update on Purchase of Carmelite Land on Firhouse Road

We are delighted to announce that the club has now closed on the purchase of the above land. This is truthfully a historic day for the club and we are very fortunate to have secured such valuable facilities.  It will hopefully provide further playing facilities in the years ahead for the Club, Parish and wider community.

As many members are aware the purchase of this land has been a slow process and would not have succeeded without the support of many. We would like to particularly thank the Carmelite Nuns and their representatives for their continuous support throughout the process. Our club cannot thank them enough for the legacy they have left behind and they have left their mark in the community for future generations. We would also like to thank our local representatives for their support, but particularly, Mr John Lahart TD who was forever available to act on our behalf. Finally, we must not forget our own long term club member, Tomás O Reachtabhra, who initially identified the location and brought it to our attention. Without Tomás’ in depth knowledge and contacts in the area, this project would never even have taken its first steps. The support of these people, and indeed many more, has given the club a very valuable resource and would never have been achieved otherwise. A “Big Thank You” to all.

Hopefully many club members will have an opportunity to “walk the land” soon. It’s important, we believe, for as many as possible to have an appreciation of what has been achieved but equally the challenges that lay ahead to develop the facility.

Thanking You

John Ryan - Club Development Chairman - Executive Member

Update: Between 20-30 club members turned up to the "Field Of Dreams" as it was renamed last night. John Ryan outlined the proposed pitch layouts while present Chairman Ciaran Maguire , past chairman Brendan Moran & Club Vice - Chairman Denis Keliher christened the grounds by having a puck and a kick around.

Congrats to Amy Ryan

Well done to Ballyboden St Enda's Amy Ryan who is flying the Irish and Ballyboden St Enda's flag in Berlin..

Berlin GAA ladies reached the final of the main camogie tournament, losing a thrilling decider narrowly to the hosts Hamburg GAA. It is the first time a Berlin GAA camogie team have ever reached a Gaelic Games Europe Camogie final. Pictured enjoying some well-deserved pure cream after the final is (left) Pennsylvania's finest Lindsay Graham and Ballyboden St. Enda's GAA starlet Amy Ryan, the team captain who led by example all day!

Water Source Discovered!

Tobar Éanna – The Water Diviner Revisited

There has been a decided lack of water falling from above, so the ‘Boden crew went underground to find an alternative source.  After much research on the topic, much of it focused on sports clubs in South Dublin, Ballyboden took the decision to drill for water on the Firhouse Road and were very lucky to find a source at 21m.  It took just a few days to install a submersible pump and to pipe the water alongside the pitch in Páirc Uí Mhurchú right up to the clubhouse.  Currently the water is being used to water the pitch, but tests are ongoing with the intention of using this source for showers, toilets and hand-basins in the club house and dressing rooms.  This will have the benefit of reducing our water charges and providing us with an independent source of water into the future.

Well done to all involved in this initiative.  We still haven’t got a good answer to the question ‘how did they know where to drill’ but there are suspicions that the water-divining skills of Frank Brooks might have been behind that decision.

SDCC Pitches Closed for Summer Recess

South Dublin County Council wishes to advise all Clubs that pitches are now closed for summer. Pitches will re-open weekend of 11 / 12 August 2018.

 
SDCC have taken a decision to close all of their pitches due to the unprecedented spell of dry weather.  While the closure of the pitches will present difficulties in scheduling home matches and training, we are obliged to comply with this directive for the long-term preservation of the pitches.  Thankfully, this recess comes at a reasonably quiet time especially for juvenile games, and team mentors are asked to be flexible in arranging training and match times on club pitches.  Dublin County Board have also been informed of the pitch closure by SDCC, so hopefully CCC will take cognisance of the fact and allow flexibility in the scheduling of games.
