Meet the Captains
Team captains are very important to the successful running of our hockey programme. They are the link between the coach and the players and wear their captain’s armbands with pride. Congratulations to all the captains who are doing an excellent job this year.

I was fortunate enough to represent Leinster hockey during the Easter break on a trip to the Netherlands. We participated in a tournament which consisted of qualified development squads from Germany, Belgium, England, the Netherlands, Ireland and Poland. The standard high and the competition was fierce but we managed to win three out of six matches and finish in the top half of the table. Leinster girls were able to bring back the fair play award to Ireland for our sportsmanship, enthusiasm and etiquette. It was a great experience, personal achievement and honour for me to be able to put on a Leinster jersey and represent my province in another country.
The following girls have been invited to a wall climbing session in Trinity Sports centre followed by pizzas in the board room as a thank you for acting as Ball Girls during the Trinity College Ladies EYHL games in Santry over the last year.
Well done girls.

Success for Senior 1s!
The first of 3 club matches against Weston Hockey Club for the team and turned out to be a raging success! The girls were fresh after a nice Christmas break and were ready to get back out on the field. With a score of 4-3, the team put up a very good fight. Playing 3x20 minutes, it was a very close call. Goals from Sophie Power and Molly Donegan secured the win for Sackville at 4-3! It was a very physical and tight game against an extremely strong side of Weston but the Sackville ladies played an absolute stormer and sealed the win! Well done girls and keep up the hard work!!

Hockey trip to Malaga!
Last November the senior hockey teams with girls from forth, fifth and sixth year of Mount Sackville embarked on the latest adventure to "Campo de Hockey El Retamar, La Estupa" Malaga, Spain for four intense days of training and matches. After an early start on Thursday morning and a long day of traveling we went straight into two matches against the local teams and despite our exhaustion we achieved stunning success in both! The trip consisted of a guided tour of beautiful Malaga city, team bonding, skills development, fun, swimming and lots of hockey! It was an unforgettable trip for everyone involved thanks to our coaches Simon Filgas (senior coach) Hilary Hurley (mountsackville hockey coordinator) and Sheila Carol (junior coach)
