Dear members,
See below latest club news and developments.

Winning Weekend For Railway HC

Last weekend Railway HC went unbeaten in 9 matches across various competitions, drawing 2 matches, winning 7 and scoring a massive 52 goals in total, (the first goal in the Men’s Indoor Semi Final scored by Kenny Carroll crossing the line 55 seconds after the match began), a fantastic weekend for the club. These results also led to Railway Men’s Indoor team gaining a place in the Leinster Indoor Final. Railway Indoor Ladies’ team succeeded in winning a place in the Leinster Indoor Semi Final. Railway Ladies 1s have gained a place in the Quarter Finals of the Jacqui Potter Cup, a title which they are defending this year. Railway Ladies’ 2s beat Pembroke 1s, an EYHL team in their Jacqui Potter Cup match in a thrilling game that ended in a sudden death penalty shoot out which sees the 2s also go through to the Jacqui Potter Quarter Finals. All of the above finals will take place this weekend, see below for details. Best of luck to all involved and all support is welcome.
