Leinster Senior League, Charlie Cahill Cup, First Round
Killester United 0 Bluebell United 1 (att 75)
The Charlie Cahill Cup is, I think, reserved for teams in the top two divisions of the Leinster Senior League. Killester and Bluebell are both in the top tier, the Senior Division, and it was a close encounter at Haddon Park.
Not quite close enough for me though, with a late flight home and the prospect of too much time to kill I was hoping for extra time.
Killester had chances to equalise, but were unable to do so and Bluebell's early goal proved enough to win the tie and move into the second round.
Killester is a suburb in north Dublin, and Haddon Park is so well-enclosed it's tricky to find, hemmed in by houses. The pitch is railed off down both sides, with car parking, changing rooms and a clubhouse behind one goal.
