Follow the South Africa Gaels tour in Ireland


The S.A. Gaels, South Africa’s national GAA team, touched down in Dublin on Sunday, 7th August for the GAA World Games 2016. The team performed a traditional African song before the semi-final clash between Kilkenny and Waterford, where they ignited the crowd with a splash of South African culture .

The only club dedicated to Gaelic games in South Africa, S.A. Gaels is sponsored by ESB International and players from both the men’s and women’s senior teams are currently preparing to play in Ireland this week.

According to David Devine, S.A. Gaels chairman, the male team is focused on making it all the way to the finals that will be played in Croke Park on Friday 12th August:

We have a strong, committed, athletic and experienced team, we are well prepared and we are confident that we will make ESB International, who have made it possible for us to compete at this level, proud of our performance at the games.

Commenting on the S.A. Gaels and the tournament, Ollie Brogan, Managing Director, ESB International said,

A huge part of developing our business abroad is looking at how we can integrate with the culture there and how we can contribute to the communities that we operate in. It’s been fantastic to see the game played in South Africa and the enthusiasm and respect that the players have for it. The S.A. Gaels are a strong and dedicated team and we’re looking forward to seeing them take to the pitch next week.

2016 marks the second World Games which first took place in 2015 in Abu Dhabi. S.A. Gaels have been in competition for two years, Keith O’Leary team coach, said,

This year will be our second year competing and we feel more prepared than ever to take the cup home. GAA is special to every member of this team and we hope to do the game justice throughout the tournament.

Head Office Lunchtime Runs

ESB Athletic Club is launching a new lunchtime run schedule from next week, 8 August, with three different paced groups as follows:

· Brian Gray will take the Blue group on Thursdays for beginners or people doing Couch to 5k programmes. The session will be a mixture of jogging and walking, with the aim of gradually building fitness.

· Sarah Stapleton will take the Purple group on Wednesdays. This group is for people who can run 5km continuously and will be at a relaxed jogging pace.

· Matt Reid will take the Yellow group on Mondays, for runners who are looking for a faster session, covering a distance of 5-10km.

There are lots of people running at lunchtime from Head Office, and while some people enjoy running by themselves, there are real benefits to running in a group and encouraging each other. If you are interested in joining one of the runs, just turn up at 12:30 on the day in question and give it a go.

mobile bicycle service and repair will have a display of bikes on the 4th floor of head office restaurant today between 10am and 2pm please come along & check this out.

Cricket – Willie Webster trophy finals day

Winning team

ESB finished the competitive season on a high with a solid win over the Theatrical Cavaliers (Gaiety Theatre team) in the 3rd/4th playoff for the Willie Webster trophy.

ESB fielded first. Constant pressure was applied by tight bowling and excellent fielding restricting the Cavalier’s score to 113. Wickets were shared between Damian Pacitto, Baajee Dabhade and Vikas Bhagaur.

The run chase was measured, and again solid contributions from Baajee, Rahmet Ullah, Vikas with a finishing effort from Killian Morgan resulted in an ultimately comfortable 5 wicket win.

For the final match it was great to have a lot of support with a number of family members present.

There are some more photos here.

There will be a few more friendly matches before the season ends – it’s never too late to start!
