Keeping an eye on the ball
Kilglass Gaels are holding a seminar on Monday the 25th of February at 7.30pm in the Kilglass club rooms. This is a special seminar that aims to offer inspiration and information to young GAA players, and their coaches, mentors, and administrators, while tackling some of the challenges they all may face during their sporting careers on and off the field. Everybody involved in sport – budding future stars, those who are competing at club, county or national level now, parents, coaches and managers are invited to attend and join in the interactive Night. More details are on our website
Club Rooms
We would remind all managers and coaches that our main pitch is closed for all training for the foreseeable future. Lights have now been erected on our 2nd pitch so all teams should be training on that pitch. We would also remind all mangers to ensure that the club rooms are locked and secured after they have been used.
The Gathering
The club reminds everyone that the Gathering weekend takes place from the 14th to the 16th of June 2013 in our parish. We encourage you to invite all your family abroad but especially your family living within Ireland to come home to the parish for the weekend. The Gathering committee will hold a once off fundraising night with a cake sale in Earleys Hillstreet on Saturday the 2nd March at 9pm.
10km Memory Run and 4km walk
A special run in memory of the late Sandra Earley will take place on Sunday February 24th at 2pm. Sandra died suddenly at the age of just 26 and was a member of the Kiltubrid ladies GAA team. Sandra also had strong links with our parish and club as she was a niece of our great clubman John Anthony Burke of the Curries. All proceeds from the run goes to a heart screening clinic at the matter foundation. Entry costs just €10 or €15 for families. Registration takes place at the Sheemore Inn, Kilclare at 12.30pm on the day. Anyone who wants more details contact Brian Carroll 087-2420896.
