Christmas Party – Save the Date

Our Christmas party will be held on the green on Saturday 7th December this year, probably between 4pm and 6pm.

  • Santa
  • Awe and wonder when the Christmas lights are turned on
  • Mulled wine
  • Scintillating conversation
  • Mulled wine
  • Fancy new card machine to pay your €20 annual subscription (so excuses about carrying no cash will no longer be acceptable!)

  • Mulled wine

Bet you can’t wait. More details to follow…

Coffee Morning – Amount Collected

We are delighted to say that just under €1,000 was collected at last Saturday morning’s Coffee Morning in aid of the Harold’s Cross and Blackrock Hospices. Thanks to everyone who donated so generously and thanks too to all the volunteers who helped organise the event. A special thanks to Lynam’s who very kindly co-hosted this event.

If you weren’t able to attend on the morning, you can still donate. You can find the Hospice collection boxes on the counter in Lynam’s.

Update 1/10/19: A total of €1,352.00 was collected. Thanks to everyone who supported this very worthy cause.

The Céilí – The Aftermath

We had a great turn-out for our Summer Céilí on the 22nd. The weather was perfect and we had some very enthusiastic dancing from residents. The younger ones slightly more enthusiastic than the older ones!

Some people to thank… A huge thank you to Suzanne for organising, and Shane and friends for help on the day, and into the late summer solstice evening. Thanks too to Prop Me Up for the generous loan of all the kids games, and to Lynam’s for help with the food side of things. There are too many other people to thank personally, but you know who you are! Our events couldn’t happen without the generous time and support from so many volunteers.

Thanks too to the owners of The Colour Den Hairdressers and the new CureSpa for coming along and handing out tasty treats and vouchers.

Céilí – Saturday Afternoon

“One two three, one two three, shhpin her ’round, back ye go.” etc.

There’ll be plenty more of that sort of thing this Saturday afternoon (22nd) on the green in front of the shops from 4pm to 6pm. Yes, we’re holding our inaugural Roebuck Céilí. Ceol, craic agus rince go lóir!

We have our lovely new marquee, so rain won’t stop the rince. (No, it’ll be NOTHING like Fr. Noel Furlong in the caravan in that episode of Father Ted.) But maybe bring your umbrellas if the forecast says rain.

There will also be a few BBQs, manned by the rugged pit-masters of Roebuck (some local Dads will be helping out), cooking tasty hot dogs and burgers supplied by Lynam’s.

There should also be a few games and other things for the kids.

Bring your own beverages, and feel free to wear your county colours.

Community Games Update

Well done to all our competitors in the Dublin Community Games final, who togged out in our new kit. We had 20 participants in Santry and doubled our medal count from last year. Riona Ferriter claimed Silver in the Under 14’s Long Puck to do one better than her bronze medal last year. Trudy Mollins raced to gold in the Under 8’s 80m sprints, and will go on to represent Dublin in the All Ireland’s. Go Trudy!

We’ll look at expanding the boundary again next year and the possibility of participating in a broader range of events including art. Thanks to the parents for helping out on the day of our own event, and during the Dublin Games. Also a big thanks to Shane Cotter and coach John O’Carroll. Rumour has it that Lynam’s sponsored some ice creams for the Goatstown Gallopers! We hope to add some more events next year including Art. And of course we are always looking for more volunteers! Please get in touch if you’d like to help out.

Céilí, 22nd June

Get those ringlets ready, and start practising all those moves from your gaeltacht days! Yes, we’re having an outdoor Céilí right here in Roebuck on Saturday June 22nd, from 4pm to 6pm. For those who weren’t educated in the mysterious ways of the Siege of Ennis in their youth, or if you have forgotten the moves, no need to worry. We’ll have someone on hand to help “gently co-ordinate” our efforts.

We’ll also have other activities, games etc. More detail to follow…

Save the date – Saturday 22nd June.

Goatstown Community Games 2019

We had a great Goatstown Community Games afternoon on Rosemount pitches last month. Lots of young locals braved the drizzly weather that Sunday to come out and run ar nós na gaoithe.

Well done to all the competitors and organisers. We now have plenty of speedy Goatstownians to send on to Santry. Here’s hoping that our new Goatstown strip will give them that extra edge!

The Community Games organisers have been in touch with all those who qualified. We have 20 competitors confirmed to compete in the Dublin Community Games athletics finals.

The Dublin games will take place on Saturday 8th June in the Morton Stadium in Santry. The opening parade starts at 10:30am.

There is a training day organised for Saturday 25th, 3-4pm, on the sports track in Irishtown. This is being run by John O’Carroll (086 795 4371).
