Thanks to everyone who supported, attended and organised last Friday’s Race Night in the Millmount House and apologies to those who thought it would have been tonight (Holy Thursday – its usual slot).
Honourable mention to our Juniors team who attended and still went out and beat Manortown 4-2 on the Saturday ... hangovers? No problem!
Also well done to our U12's for their great semi-final victory over Clonee last Sunday morning ... looking forward to the final

St. Aidan's CBS Tanzania Immersion Project 2013
I was part of a group of 11 students and 3 teachers that went on an Immersion Project to Arusha in Tanzania.
While we were there we visited schools, both primary and secondary, the food & water shelter, the Masaai villages and the local orphanage.
In the orphanage we left some toys, sweets and the Drumcondra kits for the young kids there, as you can see from the photos they were absolutely delighted with everything.
The children in the orphanage had very little and such small gifts meant the world to them.
Thanks so much to Drumcondra FC for providing the kits. Shaun Ryan
