Camogie AGM

Attention Club Members

Camogie Section AGM for 2018

Main Hall - Wednesday Dec 19 8PM

Declan Maguire Tournament

The Annual Declan Maguire Touranment will take place on St. Stephen's Day at 11.30am in PUM. 

Hurlers will be given an opportunity to burn off some calories on St. Stephen's Day in the Annual Declan Maguire Tournament.  This is the 16th Anniversary of the Tournament.

The report below appeared on the Boden website in  January 2005.

The Second Annual Declan Maguire Memorial Trophy held in the club on St. Stephen's morning was a huge success with a total of over 44 players involved from either Firhouse or Rathfarnham. All the Maguire family were present - Ollie, Olive, Peter, Dermot, Gary, Paula and little Laura. Gary presented the trophy for a 2nd year in a row to Rathfarnham.  Rathfarnham"s Captain this year Emmet Carroll expressed the views of the whole hurling section when he said how much Declan was missed by everyone and how he would have loved a day like today, for the hurling, the camaraderie and the craic. He also thanked all the players involved, the family for their attendance and all who helped in feeding everyone afterwards.

The above report alludes to the fact that Rathfarnham had just won a two in a row.  Rumour has it that Firhouse have had the better in recent years but this is disputed!! Just to clarify matters your legality to play with a particular team depends on where you had your Christmas dinner... if you turn right leaving the club, you play with Rathfarnham...if you turn left, you play with Firhouse.   Let's hope that the numbers turn up on the morning to dust off the cobwebs, have the "craic" and remember one of our great players.

The Minor Match on the day will invlove the Over 35s and a Junior Selection. This game will commence at 10.30am.

Games are currently planned for PUM.  Keep an eye on the website for updates.

Thanks to Richie Sweetnam and Camogie Mgmt. team

The Camogie section, the Club Executive and the Club in general would like to thank Richie Sweetnam for his years of dedication as Senior Camogie coach. Richie and his management team stepped down at the beginning of the week.

Under Richie's stewardship, the Ballyboden St Endas Senior Camogie team enjoyed a period of unprecedented success, winning 5 Dublin Championships in a row from 2010 to 2014.  They also won numerous Senior League and Cup titles. With a number of high profile players retiring soon after, the easy decision would have been for Richie to follow suit and bask in the glory of his success. Instead, he took on the rebuilding project with enthusiasm, successfully integrating many young players into  the Senior setup in the following years. As a result, he leaves behind a young and enthusiastic Senior panel for his successor; of the 30 players on the Senior panel in 2018, only a fistful are over 22 years of age.

Richie was actively involved throughout the Camogie section, not just with the Senior panel. He was to the forefront of all fundraising efforts, and I'm sure we'll see him collecting trees in the New Year!  He attended every Camogie meeting, where he was always generous with his advice to mentors of all teams at juvenile level and had a genuine interest in improving the level of Camogie within Boden at all ages.

We also thank Peter Lucey, who has been by Richie's side in recent years & Orla Smith who also joined the management team last year. We cannot forget the input of Bernard Curtis, who has been everpresent by Richie's side, along with the number 1 Boden supporter Rita

We would also like thank Richie's wife Triona and their young family for their patience over the years, the kids won't miss being dragged to the early training sessions on Saturday mornings!

We wish Richie many more years of success with the Club with whichever team which will be fortunate to inherit his talents.
