U.16 boys showed huge support to the Mostyn family and Aodh today. The bravery of Sean and Liam Mostyn not only lining out today but playing their hearts out.
Before the match they also received the news that Aodhs father in law and Ruairi and Jacks Grandfather passed away this morning suddenly.
Our boys beat the league leaders a strong Man O War team by 2-16 to 1-9. If the Dublin Senior team showed up today they would have beaten them too. Before the match there was a minutes silence for Kieron. The win was dedicated to Kieron.
Also our opposition team Man O War’s posted this message on their Facebook page this evening :
This weekend we remember that there are more important things than results and that football can bring us together. Our U16 boys lost out to a dignified Robert Emmets team who were mourning the loss of their mentor Kieron Mostyn this week. Two of Kieron’s sons played in the match. This was compounded by a death in the family of their mentor Aodh this morning. Our U16 team and management know only too well the heartache of losing a beloved mentor. We send our support to everyone in the Robert Emmets GAA family. #yourclubyourcommunity
