End of Season Chairman’s Message

Now that the 2023/2024 season has concluded, I wish to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support of Dalkey United. It has been a very busy season, with 35 teams and 700 children and young adults training and playing matches every week. None of this would have been possible without the commitment and hard work of all our team managers, coaches, and age group coordinators. Thanks to each of you for giving so much time and effort to your teams.

There has been plenty of on-field success this season, but special mentions must go to our U21s on winning the Leinster Football League U21 Section B and reaching the U21 Cup Final, and to our U17s and U18s who also made Cup Finals. Congratulations to the players and coaches of all three teams.

The highlight of the season was undoubtedly our two-day Champions League tournament which saw over 400 children play in more than 100 matches over the May Bank Holiday weekend. A great deal of work went into preparing this and the club owes a huge thanks to the group of volunteers who organised it and to everyone who helped out over the course of the two days and contributed to the tournament’s success.

Finally, thank you to my fellow committee members for the significant amount of work that you do behind the scenes.

We hope everyone enjoys the summer and look forward to welcoming you all back next season.

Dara Marnell
