Why undergo a Cardiac Screening? 
Up to 100 young people die each year in Ireland from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) 
1 in 300 people may have a cardiac abnormality 
The national register recently reported that the incidents of SADS are higher in Ireland than many other European countries. 
In Italy cardiac screening is mandatory for anyone aged 12 to 35 years involved in competitive sport for the past 25 years. They have reduced the incidents of SADS by 89%. 
The GAA’s Medical Scientific and Welfare Committee and the International Rugby Board recommend cardiac screening for all players over the age of 14 years

St Brigids 6-11, Padraig Pearses 8-1

Our Pieta House sponsored u16’s were very unlucky to lose out to Pearses in the last game of the group stages of championship. Despite the 5 point difference in the final score, it was a much tighter game throughout with Brigid’s leading at half time 2-6 to 2-4. The second half saw a feast of goals for both sides with our three Curran’s finding the back of the net as well as Kate Nolan. As Brigid’s began to run out of steam, Pearses seemed to have another gear and pulled ahead in the last few minutes to go out five point winners.
Team: H. Martin, R. Dolan, S. Dolan, E. Carroll 0-1, A. O’Donovan, A. Coyle, K. Nolan 1-5, R. Callaghan 0-1, J. McGrane 0-1, E. Curran 1-0, R. Gallagher 0-1, L. Curran 3-1, A. Curran 1-1.
Subs: C. Dolan, N. Donnelly, A. Nestor, S. Downey, A. Downey, A. Lennon, S. Butler, E. Gleeson, K. Harmon.
