Leinster Finals weekend -Apri 9th & 10th

This weekend we are hosting the Annual Leinster Senior Finals across the weekend. The Men’s 2s are in the Railway Cup Final, on Sunday at 14:45, against Monkstown. The weekend is always an extremely busy one for the Club, so if you can provide some assistance over the weekend contact the Club, all offers of help will be hugely appreciated!

A reminder that parking at Rovers on weekends like this will be extremely limited so if you can take public transport or park in Marley if Grange Road is full, please do.

It is illegal to park on the verge outside Grange Road and the Club does not condone this at all and would ask that all members and visitors to the Club find alternative parking if needed.

SUMMER BREAK

For junior members, summer camps are being arranged and details will be forwarded to all registered junior members as soon as possible. Can we remind all members that it isn’t possible for individuals or small groups to call into the club to knock a ball around on an ad hoc basis, as both Hockey Ireland player insurance and the club public liability insurance policy does not cover this, and it can also interfere with essential maintenance work and other events and bookings in the club.

A massive congratulations to the Ladies firsts team who have been promoted to Leinster Ladies Division One!

They secured a well earned 0-0 draw away to league leaders Kilkenny to secure 2nd spot in Leinster Division Challenge A. These are the only points that Kilkenny have dropped at home all season in the league, so it was a massive result in itself, let alone confirming their promotion at the same time!

This is a well deserved accolade by a squad, past and present, who have worked extremely hard to earn promotion. They have had many heartbreaks over the years, which makes today even better!


Congratulations to all the players, management and coaches, David and Stephen, on this magneficient achievement!
Enjoy the well deserved celebrations and we look forward to roaring you on next season in Division 1!
