Talking Points:
Our ladies 1st team togged out for their 3rd game in the Intermediate Championship on a lovely bright evening in Batterstown. Dunboyne played very well throughtout the games to maintain our unbeaten record and are now 3 wins from 3. From the outset Dunboyne were on the front foot with a good base being provided from our half-back line and midfield, with Annie Moffatt and Dee Blayned getting on a lot of ball and using it well. Upfront Fiona O\'Neill was showing well for the ball and got some early scores to settle the team. Niamh Farrell & Katie Bermingham were getting on top in their positions and curring out a lot of Gaels attacks. We raced into a 0-6 lead, and then Gaels had their best spell of the game hitting 3 excellent points, but Dunboyne responded well and finished the half strongly. Our full back line led by Emma O\'Byrne got on top and up front Aoife Boylan and Odhrnaith Mc kenna were winning a lot of ball and creating chances for Shelly & Sinead Hackett. Dunboyne started the 2nd half strongly and a well taken goal by Fiona O\'Neill ensured the win. Meabh O\'Doherty and Amy Bermingham grew in prominence in the 2nd half. With many players on holiday a number of girls made their Adult debut, Amy & Katie Bermingham and Aoife Boylan. All 3 performed really well on the night a slotted very well into the team.


Established in 1902 by Bob O’Keeffe, the hurling section of the club has been in existence for more than 100 years. It wasn’t until the late 1940s that the game of Gaelic Football was properly organised within the club and in 1952 it became known as St. Peter’s GAA Club. Today both football and hurling, along with the camogie and ladies football sections, are thriving.
