Merry Christmas from the Hook



The Hook would like to take this opportunity to wish all readers and those in the extended hockey family in Leinster and beyond a merry christmas and a peaceful New Year. 2009 has been a really enjoyable year for the blog, expanding the readerships by well over 300pc on 2008. So much of this is down to the contributions of many people who supply results, fixtures, news, advertisements and comments who make it such a rewarding experience.

By way of a small Christmas present to the readers, over the holidays, the Hook will be publishing an interview Graham Shaw on reaching his 150th cap along with a few words with Dutch Olympian Laurence Docherty on his link-up with Clontarf in last week's National Indoor Trophy.

Furthermore, a round-up of all men's, women's and schools leagues to date is currently being compiled. For these, if you have any interesting tit-bits of information about your team or league and how they are getting on to date, please drop an email to stevie_findlats@yahoo.com.

Merry Christmas and will hopefully see you around the grounds in the New Year.
