- ACHL Div 5 – Davitts 2-9 O’Donnells 1-6
The senior hurlers took the spoils with a deserved victory over O’Donnells at the Falls Park. We were always in front and the highlights from the game were a kicked goal from Stephen McGivern and a good finish to the net from Stephen Toner as he doubled on a ball in the air to the back of the net.
This was good preparation for next Saturday’s championship final and everyone should ensure that they are at hurling training on Tuesday night.

- ACFL – Div 2B – Davitts 0-5 St Endas 3-15
The senior footballers suffered a heavy defeat to St Endas in their first outing since the league split into 2A and 2B. Despite missing numerous players due to holidays we still had enough players with quality and ability to have competed much better, however on the night we were over run by a team who were much more hungrier and wanted to win the game. We will need to pick ourselves up and the only way this can be done is to ensure that players get to training in preparation for the next the game.
Next up is St Pauls on 27 July at Shaws Road with an 8pm throw in.
Scorers: G Burns 0-1, D Wallace 0-1, A Rowntree 0-3.
- ACFL Div 2 – Tir Na nOg 2-7 Davitts 1-11
The senior footballers got back on the winning trail away to Tir Na nOg on Sunday evening with a single point to spare. While we had been guaranteed a top 6 finish after Gortnamona lost to Moneyglass that afternoon, we wanted to end the first round of games with a win. We played excellent football, taking some fine long range points with the highlight being a Danny Wallace goal (tap in). We led at half time 1-7 to 1-2 but Tir Na nOg put in a spirited second half performance as they too were pushing to finish in the top six, but we held firm coming out with a single point victory 1-11 to 2-7 and finishing in fifth position.
The league now splits into Division 2A and 2B and we have our first game in 2A this Saturday night at home to St Endas in the Falls Park at 6pm
Scorers: A Slane 0-5, D Wallace 1-0, S O’Neill 0-2, L McGivern 0-1, G Burns 0-1, C Gallagher 0-1, D Largey 0-1
- Lá Cultúrtha
Folks, one for the diary as we will be having a Culture Day on Sunday 17th July.
First up is the Overs v Under 35’s in both football and hurling from 11am at Grosvenor Recreation Centre. I think the overs have the bragging rights after winning this challenge a few years ago.
Then it’s up to the Club Lounge at 2pm for an afternoon of entertainment, to celebrate our culture with music, song and dance.

- ACFL Div 2 – Davitts 0-12 Gortnamona 1-17
The senior footballers put in a lack lustre performance at home to Gortnamona last night at the Falls Park. Despite this we only trailed by two points at half time and when we went a point in front in the second half in looked as if we had the momentum to go on and win the game. However, Gortnamona equalised and when we broke forward and squandered a great scoring opportunity it was Gortnamona who went up the pitch and knocked over another point. This revitalised Gortnamona and they finished the game strong to win 1-17 to 0-12.
Next up on Sunday night is an away trip to Tir Na nOg and hopefully we can confirm our top 6 status as the league splits into two section following this round of games.
- ACFL Div 2 – St Endas 1-10 Davitts 2-10
After a couple of weeks without a league game the senior footballers resumed their campaign with an away trip to Hightown to face St Endas. St Endas raced into an early lead as a lapse in concentration allowed them in for an early goal. However, after this we stepped up our play as we were dominant both in our defensive duties and attacking play. At half time St Endas held a one point advantage but we upped our intensity in the second running out winners by a goal.
Scorers: Sean McGovern 1-2, Daniel Largey 1-1, Aaron Slane 0-3, Liam McGivern 0-1, Ryan Park 0-1, Gerard Burns 0-1, Anthony McGrattan 0-1
