Congrats to our Junior A footballers who progressed to the AFL5 promotion play off final after a great win over Templeogue Synge Street by 2-12 to 2-09. Report by Noel Madden here. Elsewhere it was heartbreak for our Minor A footballers as they exited the Championship after a defeat to Clontarf by 0-10 to 1-06. Hard luck lads.

Ballyboden St Enda’s Major Fundraising Event

Ballyboden St Enda’s Major Fundraising Event

Shelbourne Park Dog Race Night

Friday 4th November 2016

As you are all aware, the club has made in recent months a substantial investment with the development of Pairc Ui Murchu and a new gymnasium facility in Sancta Maria. The overall cost for both of these projects will be in excess of €300,000. It is important to understand that these investments were not made just for the benefit of the current adult teams, but more importantly for the betterment & development of future generations of Ballyboden St Enda’s players both boys and girls.

The Club’s Executive sanctioned these developments, for the reasons stated above, but also knowing that it will be necessary to recover the costs incurred through fundraising activities for years to come.

With this objective in mind, the Club is holding it’s major fundraising event for 2016 in Shelbourne Park on Friday 4th November . The details of this event will be published on the website and also through posters and leaflets that will be distributed to all teams and parents of juvenile teams.

Quite apart from the fundraising event itself, a night out in Shelbourne Park is always an enjoyable and exciting occasion and well worth the asking price.

So I would ask every member and supporter of our Club to take note of this date in your diary and to give your support for our worthy cause.

Brendan Moran

PUM Update

All, I'm delighted to report that the reconstruction of PUM is now complete (see attached pic) Certainly all those Novenas' paid off as the weather was very kind to us especially over the last two weeks. I'd like to pay a special thanks to all who worked extremely hard to make this happen within a tight time frame. Our principle contractor DarGolf together with consultant Richard Hayden worked many a long evening with Frank Moran and myself to ensure all aspects of project was professionally delivered. The attention to detail by both was exemplary. Also two other key contractors, ACE Fencing and Connacht Sportsnets worked within very specific deadlines to deliver a very high standard of finish on both boundary fence and netting.

  However I cannot let this opportunity pass without mentioning the excellent goodwill and support from our neighbors both in Westbourne and Cremorne. Without their full support this project could not have happened and the club will be forever grateful. On behalf of all Ballyboden St Enda;s and the wider community can I say a big 'Thank You'.

  Finally its now up to all our members to respect this very valuable resource. With seeding now complete we would hope to re-open pitch early summer. However its critical to allow growth to fully develop over next few months undisturbed. Please be vigilant and prevent anyone from accessing the pitch even to collect a ball. It will be to all our benefit in the long term.

Again thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding during the development.
John Ryan, Chairman, Development Committee
