There was great ac­tiv­ity last Satur­day week when we had two un­der-8 foot­ball teams from Crum­lin at the Cas­tle and great com­pet­i­tive matches.

The un­der-9 boys foot­ball team trav­eled to West­manstown Gaels and in a tight match saw great de­vel­op­ment in skills all over the pitch.

On Sun­day week last it was a case of rain drops fall­ing on our heads as the un­der-8 camo­gie girls braved the el­e­ments to play in a blitz hosted by St Brid­get’s which also in­cluded the St Jude’s and O’Toole’s clubs. Also out in the rain was the un­der-10 girl’s foot­ball team play­ing in the Le­in­ster Club Blitz in Bray. They played four matches against very strong teams and did Shankill proud.
