So proud of our 2 cup winners today. What a journey this season has been for all the girls and it's a wonderful way to end it. Our commiserations have to go to the girls of Shankill and Clonee who made the 2 finals so exciting - you will have your day. Many congratulations to all the players and coaches of othe teams - Go Greystones Girls!🥇🏆🎉
FOLKS, WE'VE ONLY GONE AND DONE THE DOUBLE!! In the second final of the day, our U14A have beaten Shankill 3-2 to complete a very proud day for our Greystones Girls. Many congrats to Stewart and the team - more to follow........
Rhys Gamble hit 6, or half a dozen depending on your view, as U13A had an 8-2 cup win against Esker Celtic. Finn Fogarty and Callum Smith were the other scorers. A year up, our U14 Major side beat Peamount 3-0 with Max Scully, Jamie Murray and James Nicholson getting on the scoresheet. Mark Fagan and Callum Jones hit the target for the U17M1 side as they beat Phoenix 2-0 and there was a fantastic performance from our U18's who beat league leaders Castleknock Celtic 4-1, despite playing 2/3's of the game with 10 men, and join them at the top. Alex Synott and Bryan Towo each scored 2 in a superb team effort.

Road Safety Alert – Greasy Road Surfaces following break in weather The Road Safety Authority (RSA) is advising all road users especially drivers to exercise caution on roads following a forecast by Met Éireann for heavy rain and a risk of thundery downpours throughout the country this weekend. The expected rainfall will bring to an end to the dry spell which poses added dangers to road users. According to Met Éireann, scattered heavy rain showers will become widespread in Connaught, Cork, Clare, Kerry and Limerick from this evening and Donegal, Leinster, Cavan and Monaghan on Saturday. Highlighting the particular dangers posed to drivers following a long dry spell Ms. Moyagh Murdock, CEO, Road Safety Authority said, “Roads are at their most slippery when the weather breaks after a dry spell. When the weather breaks, this deposit mixes with rainwater and the road becomes hazardous. The resulting greasy road surface increases stopping distances and the risk of a skid. The sudden change in driving conditions can also catch drivers off guard.” “The expected rainfall and the condition of roads will make driving particularly hazardous as road surfaces become slippery reducing skid resistance.” She said. Drivers are being advised to: • Slow down. Drive at an appropriate speed to the conditions. • Adjust your driving behaviour to suit the changing conditions • Don’t tailgate - Allow extra distance to the vehicle in front especially when driving behind heavy goods vehicles. • Use dipped headlights at all times of poor visibility • Check tyres to ensure minimum tread depth of 1.6mm and ensure correct tyre pressures. • Drive with care and caution – expect the unexpected ENDS For further information, please contact: Communications Office, Road Safety Authority – 096 25008 Communications Department| Road Safety Authority | Moy Valley Business Park, Primrose Hill, Dublin Road, Ballina, Co.
