★ Gary Kenny All Ireland U10 Football Blitz ★

 

As the summer ends and we all resume our busy routines the U10 coaches would like to take a moment to say a big hearth felt Thank You to every parent in our club for their help and tremendous effort in organising and running this year’s Gary Kenny All Ireland U10 Football Blitz.

We have got messages from every team that attended to compliment every aspect of the day, from the spread of food to the BBQ to the car parking to the professional referees/umpires/ pitch coordinators, to how professional our facilities are and the most repeated compliment was the friendly and community atmosphere we showed on the day to all the visiting Teams and spectators, that is really something we can all be proud of.

We started organising and fundraising for the Blitz in February and the generosity of the people and businesses of Celbridge has been outstanding.

We would like to take a moment to thank the sponsors, who provided much needed funds helping us with so much free give-away’s during the day.

Please take a moment to look & like all the business’s whose generosity contributed so much to the success of the day. If you are looking for a service or product, please start by considering these local businesses.

Kind Regards
Celbridge GAA U10 Coaching Team

Kildare’s Under-16 hurlers

Kildare’s Under-16 hurlers beat Offaly by 4-13 (25) to 2-7 (23) in the final of the Sean O’Connor perpetual cup in Limerick today (7th July).

Adding to the magnitude of this victory, the Kildare team beat the hosts Limerick in the qualifying game while Offaly defeated Kerry.

All of the games were played in Stakerwallace GAA Club in Limerick and the cup was presented to the Kildare captain, Colmán O’Donovan from the Celbridge club.

The Kildare team was managed by Eoin Stapleton and Paul Qualter. And the Kildare panel consisted of the following:

1- Keith O’Callaghan (Leixlip)
2- Rossa O Brian (Kilcock)
3- Matthew Eustace (Maynooth)
4- Peter O'Donoghue (Naas)
5- Eoin Walsh (Maynooth)
6- Sean Conway (Naas)
7- Colmán O’Donovan (Celbridge)
8- Conan Boran (Naas)

15- David Qualter (Maynooth)
17- Tadhg Halpin ( Celbridge)
18- Johnny Owens (Celbridge)

22- Paul Dolan (Eire Og)
23-Luke Kosinski (Maynooth)

We think the cup is named after a noted figure in Limerick GAA who was the referee for the 1969 and 1975 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship finals.
