Ruby's & Fingallians Partnership
Last Friday night the club was delighted to launch our Adult Hurlers' partnership with Rubys. We were joined at the club by a large contingent of our hurlers and were very happy to welcome Rob Keegan Managing Director of Rubys who also oversaw a coaching session conducted by some of our players with some of our younger future stars. On behalf of the club our captain Ian Kennedy and Vice Chairman Carl Jones were delighted to present Rob with a framed jersey and Rob also wished the lads the best of luck in the semi final this weekend. An enjoyable evening was had by all.

Unfortunately our Ladies team were not as successful, losing out to Thomas Davis which now sees them at Intermediate status for next season. We're in no doubt they will all regroup and get back to the top table next year.
It was also a big weekend for our Minor Hurlers who were both successful in their respective championship quarter finals. Our A team were at home to O'Tooles winning 2-18 to 0-10. While our B team had another comprehensive win in Balheary against Raheny with a scoreline of 5-11 to 0-13. Congratulations to all involved.
A big championship semi final weekend is coming up for our Hurlers as we lock horns in both games with Fingal rivals Naomh Mearnóg. First up are our 1st team in the Intermediate semi-final on Saturday at home on the main pitch with a 3pm throw in. There was a huge crowd there for the quarter final win so let's all get down there again this Saturday and fill the Fins Hill. Then on Sunday morning our 2nd team are out at 11am in the Junior Championship again on the main pitch.
Also on Sunday morning our 2nd Minor team are in Castleknock in their championship semi final.
Lets get out there in large numbers to support all our teams.

Community Enhancement Programme 2021
In recent months, we have successfully received a very generous grant from the Fingal Community Development Committee, Fingal County Council and Department of Rural and Community Development in relation to the Community Enhancement Programme 2021. This grant gave the club a much-needed boost as we fully re-open our facilities to all the community. The grant helped with everything from training equipment to the development of our facilities. Funding such as this is vital to maintaining the important role we play in the community of Swords and keeps our gates open to any new or existing members who wish to be part of our club. We would like to thank and acknowledge these organisations for accepting our application and their generous grant.
Open every Saturday & Sunday mornings from 10am
