St Vincent’s defeat Trinity in a pre-Christmas cracker

By sa | Jan 7, 2019 | 0 Comments

St Vincent’s came out on top in a thrilling cup encounter with Trinity Donaghmede on a blustery night at St Benildus College. The team put a disappointing first half behind them to produce an outstanding come-from-behind win over strong opposition. Goals came courtesy of Aidan McGrath, Mark Dwyer, John Cosgrove and a brace from Fionn Nally. The win means Vincent’s progress to the last 16 of the Tom Carroll Cup, representing the best chance of silverware this season.

The multifaceted history of a hospital

By sa | Dec 19, 2018 | 0 Comments

Hospitals are complex, convoluted things. They reflect many different and diverse influences, including the philanthropic impulses and perceived duties of those who build them, changes in clinical practice over time, and – perhaps most of all – the social contexts in which they emerge and grow. So, while it is tempting to see the history of hospitals in general (and of any hospital in particular) as a linear, progressive story, leading from darkness to light, from ignorance to knowledge, the truth is invariably more complex and more interesting than that.

Comeback too little, too late for St Vincent’s

A spirited comeback effort was not enough to get a result in a hard-fought encounter with Dundrum FC. St Vincent’s went two goals behind and pulled a late goal back when Coilin Smyth scored direct from a corner. Despite their best efforts, the equalising goal never materialised and the game finished 1-2.

St Vincent’s suffered an away defeat at the hands of Lucan United. Lucan opened and closed the scoring. Rory Durand smashed in a leveller that ultimately proved to be in vain. A tight affair, Vincent’s were left to rue a number of squandered chances that should have changed the outcome.

An afternoon to forget for the visitors

Vincent’s were quickly given the opportunity to exert revenge on a Kilnamanagh outfit who had come back from two goals down to win 4-2 at Benildus the previous week but the contest never truly caught fire — in cold, windy conditions, the home side were too strong and never looked in danger of dropping points, easing into a two-goal lead in a one-sided game. It was an afternoon to forget for the visitors, as Kilnamanagh continued to soar towards the upper reaches of the league table.
