Friday October 24th – U/18 Dublin “A” Hurling Final
St. Declans 2-09
The term ended in style for Ris as they romped home to win the Dublin Colleges Senior hurling title for the first time since 1999 against St. Declans in DCU today. A man of the match performance from Colin Currie should not overshadow a fantastic team performance, especially from the six U/16 players who were starting their second final in three days, but Currie was so brilliant he deserves special mention. His two goals, the first from a ridiculously tight angle that would surely be a contender for goal of the year at any level were matched by two outrageous reverse handpasses that led to goals for John Walshe and Ben McHugh as Ris led by 4-06 to 0-06 at half time. Declans goaled within thirty seconds of the restart but McHugh’s second goal just two minutes later broke Declans’ resistance and Ris ran out easy winners.
Team: Darragh Levins, Eoin O’Sullivan, Conor Ryan, Michael O’Driscoll, Jack Higgins, Aidan Nickerson, Barry Davis, Sean McCaw, Oisin Lannigan (Captain), Franklin O’Sullivan, Conor Burke, Mark O’Keefe, John Walsh, Colin Currie, Ben McHugh
Subs: Ruadhan Clerkin for McHugh, Conor Reynolds for O’Keefe, Mark Dunleavy for Davis, Ross Maher for Higgins, Lee Dumbrell, Cillian Stacey, Michael Gaffney, Sean Baxter, Conor Cummins, Cathal Kelly, Oisin Maher, Tom O’Flaherty, Sean Owens.
Wednesday October 22nd – U/16 Dublin “A” Hurling FINAL
St. Colmcille 0-07
Ris avenged their only defeat of the year and ensured that the five in a row was completed in a titanic struggle against St. Colmcilles. Despite the score suggesting otherwise it was anything but easy. Leading 0-10 to 0-04 in the second half Ris had to save two penalties before scoring a goal of their own to finally kill off the opposition. Congratulations to the team and to mentors Mr. Colgan and Mr. Mahony. A double is also on the cards with the U/18s in their final after mid term.
Friday October 17th – All Ireland U/19 Baskteball Cup
Ris had a home game against Summerhill, Sligo in the first round of the cup today but could not make that advantage count.

The focus now returns to the Dublin league where team is attempting to win its fifth successive Dublin title

Ardscoil qualified for just our second Senior A hurling final since 1999 with a commanding win over Scoil Aodhain in PNU today. Ris controlled the game from the start and led by a massive 3-13 to 0-00 at half time. With Ris facing the wind Aidans fared somewhat better in the second half but the result was never in doubt.

Best for Ris on the day were Franklin O’Sullivan, Barry Davis, Conor Burke, Jack Higgins and John Walsh.
