Inter- Dominican Cup 2008

After a slight delay on the morning of April 4th 2008, Dominican College’s Soccer and Basketball Teams set off for Taylor's Hill, Galway to participate in the annual Inter-Dominican Tournament. This competition allows different Dominican schools around the country to compete in a blitz of basketball, soccer and hockey. Our basketball team were going down to the tournament as defending champions so pressure was on!

We were drawn in group two against 2 strong Dublin teams Santa Sabina and Scoil Caitriona. The Santa Sabina game was difficult and came down to the last few minutes. We came out as victors of both of these games. These wins gave us passage through to the semi-finals.

In the semi-finals, we came up against Dominican College, Newbridge. This was another close contest which could have gone either way, but in the last quarter we clinched the win.

The highly coveted final was against the host’s Taylor’s Hill. There were a large number of home supporters, but luckily our soccer team arrived to cheer us on (after a tremendous performance themselves, in the soccer tournament). This helped our performance greatly.

The game was extremely close throughout. We were 5 points down in the dying minutes but with a free throw from Eve O’ Brien and a 3 pointer from Laura McGrath we were back to within 1 point. After a great offensive rebound and basket from Carol-Anne Canning we were 1 point up and the clock sounded. We were delighted to retain the cup!

It was a great performance by all members of the team. The tournament was great fun and very competitive. We hope to defend our title in next year’s tournament!

Senior Premier Basketball Final

The Senior A Basketball Team finished off their season with a tightly contested League Final in the National Basketball Arena on February 28th, 2008. Having previously been beaten by Manor House in the group stage, the Senior team had a tough assignment on their hands. Even more so on this occasion as two of its star players were away at the time, at the European Space Center in Belgium.

The Final itself was extremely close from start to finish. There were some excellent plays by both sides. Dominican College however, with a huge team effort pulled away in the last quarter to beat Manor House, Raheny by 4 points.

Congratulations to all the girls involved for their hard work and the great accomplishment they achieved in winning the SSA Dublin Senior Premier Basketball Final.

Players: Laura McDunphy, Carolanne Canning, Aoife Darling, Laura McGrath, Lisa Dalderup, Sophie Wilkins, Julie Donohue, Ciara Horan, Gemma O’Leary, and Paula Mahon.

Glory Days for Junior Gaelic Footballers

Dominican juniors produced a magnificent display of  football on Thursday, combining tremendous determination with some wonderful skill against a tough Hartstown team to win the Dublin championship. The first 15 minutes were very close with Dominican edging ahead thanks to an opportunist goal from Irene Dempsey after being set up by Niamh O Brien. That score spurred on the team and further scores followed from Dayna McDonald, Lucy Collins and another Dempsey goal. Hartstown had their chances but were kept scoreless in the first half thanks to the excellent defending of Jenny McGuire, Sinead Leonard and Aisling Frier in the full back line. Dominican went in at half time 2-2 to 0-0 in front.

Dominican started the second half as they ended the first with Hannah McInerney and Roisin Murphy taking control at midfield and points following from Jenny Nulty and Kate Mulvey. The tie was soon wrapped up with a smashing goal from Nuala O Donavon. Hartstown treid to come back late in the game but Katie O Shea was outstanding in goal and defenders Lorna Meleady and Grainne Field were giving nothing away in the half backline. Late in the game substitutes Grace Geoghan ,Laura Murphy and Orla McKinney came on to help seal the 3-4 to 1-0 victory. Scenes of wild celebration followed the final whistle with the D.C supporters invading the pitch to congratulate the new champions, for whom a Leinster final and the prospect of even greater glory now awaits.
