Meath are Leinster Minor Champions.
Congratulations to all the Meath lads and especially all involved from our own club. Captained by Mathew Costello (who also was on the Leinster Champions Under 17 team last year) and Luke Mitchell who was Meath’s top scorer and was awarded the Electric Ireland Man of the Match.
We also had two Dunshaughlin Mentors Paul Nestor and Paul Murphy.
A great day for Meath football and proud day for Dunshaughlin GAA. Best of luck from all in Dunshaughlin GAA in the All-Ireland Quarter Final next Saturday against Derry in Armagh at 3pm.

Under 19 Final

Posted on: July 17th, 2018 by admin

Our under 19’s meet Simonstown in the Group B final Wednesday evening in Dunganny at 7pm
Best of luck to all the lads and can as many as possible get down to Dunganny to support the team.
The teams met earlier in the league with Simonstown winning an exciting and high scoring match by 2 pts on a scoreline of 5-10 to 1-20. The final should provide the supporters with another good game of football as both teams play attacking football. Dunshaughlin’s strength of panel will be fully examined with holidays and county minor players accounting for seven of the panel not available to line out. As with all the games that have gone before it, it will be the strength of character and strong attitude of this group of players that will give them a fighting chance of bringing the title home to Dunshaughlin. All support welcome.

Death of Patsy McLoughlin

Posted on: June 11th, 2018 by admin

Dunshaughlin GAA is sad to announce the death of club legend Patsy McLoughlin and sends its sincerest sympathy, thoughts and prayers to his daughter Anne, son in law Mark and his grandchildren Lorna, Dane, Gary and Matthew and his great grandchildren Evelyn and Daisy May. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dilís.

Few people in any club could hope to equal Patsy’s contribution to the GAA. His career with the club began over seventy years ago and during his playing career he was a regular in the number two jersey where he was the essence of reliability. He was a member of the team that won the club’s first ever football championship in 1951, beating Carnaross in the Junior Final. He captained the club in 1954 and served as Chairman or Vice Chairman in each of the four decades from the 1950s. He also served the GAA at county level, as Chairman of the Meath Juvenile Board for four years, 1969-72 and Deputy Vice Chairman of the County Board in 1979. He was one of the foremost referees in the county in the 1950s and 1960s when he refereed a number of Leinster championship games. Patsy was the club’s delegate to the county board for a couple of decades and he was Club President for many years. Patsy and his late wife, Daisy, were great supporters of the Meath team and rarely missed a championship game together.

Along with Jim Gilligan, he compiled a history of the club, Black and Amber, in centenary year 1984 and contributed to the updated version published in 2015. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of the GAA in Dunshaughlin and of all who ever donned the black and amber. He could recall details of matches long past and recount the seed and breed of players of yore. Patsy was the winner of the club’s Hall of Fame in 1999, the Meath County Board Hall of Fame in 2003 and had the honour of throwing in the ball for the county final in 2000, when Dunshaughlin captured its first ever senior football title. He had a great interest in juvenile football and was present at the meeting that revived the St. Martins Juvenile club in 1985. In his younger days he was also a capable cross country runner with the St Martin’s Athletic Club.

Patsy was a welcoming presence to all in Dunshaughlin GAA club, a presence that will be sorely missed by all who follow and support the Black and Amber.
Reposing at his daughter Anne’s home(Grange End) from 2pm until 8pm on Tuesday. Funeral Mass on Wednesday at 12 o’ clock in St. Patrick and Seachnaill’s Church, Dunshaughlin followed by burial in the adjoining cemetery.
