At the beginning of the year we had a team meeting and we set goals for ourselves and as a team to aim to achieve throughout the season. One of our mail goals was to make it to cup weekend in Cork. Now we find ourselves in second place heading to Cork to play DCU this weekend. The funny thing is I will be playing DC 4 times in five games in a row. We played DCU right before the Christmas break and Maynooth played against them the week before. As much as I like former scholar Sarah Fairbanks I’m sure we will be sick of playing each other by that fourth game. Last time Liffey Celtics played against DCU we lost to them in their home gym so I know my team is mentally ready for this game!
Another thing I am looking forward to is the being able to see the scholars down in Cork and possibly have a night out with some of them. I always get excited seeing them. I know not all of the scholars are playing in the Cup weekend but I am hoping the some of the scholars will still make an appearance!
