The Club’s latest trip to Etrepagny finally ended on last Tuesday afternoon when a tired group of players and officials returned to Dublin airport after a two day delay in France as a result of the airport at Beauvais being fogbound at the time of the scheduled return last Sunday.


The week in Normandy featured activities throughout including bowling, swimming, karting, sightseeing, shopping and of course much football. The highlight of the trip was the Test Match which was played on Saturday afternoon in the local stadium in Etrepagny and a storming performance by the Celtic team saw them win convincingly by a score of 5-0 thanks to strikes by Gavin Mullen (2), Joan Lehmann, Rian Wogan & Fergus Mulryan.

The Club would like to express its gratitude to the host Club in Etrepagny for their organisation & support from start to finish. Appreciatioin is due to the the supervising adults who looked after the boys especially when the flight home was delayed by the postponement of the flight. On Monday last the boys travelled to Paris to visit the Stade de France – a most enjoyable day for all concerned.
