Kilcoole GAA Club Notes
Our Intermediate footballers played their first championship match, last Friday in the county grounds in Aughrim. Ballinacor were our opponents and we knew the challenge that lay ahead. The game was played in desperate wet conditions which meant it would be probably be a low scoring game. This is how it turned out, with both teams level (3 points each) at half time. Ballinacor started the second half well and clocked up 2 quick points. The game was very evenly balanced and with a few minutes left, we were 1 point behind. Despite having a lot of possession and creating a few scoring chances at the end of the game, we were unable to score and eventually lost the game on a score line of 6 points to 5. Kilcoole welcomed back the services of Ronan Keddy, following the Christy Ring final and Ronan helped our cause by scoring 2 points from midfield. Our other midfielder Matt Gilbert continued his recent excellent form also scoring 2 points. Our other point came from a Stephen Coughlan free.
Primary School Hurling Blitz
Kilcoole primary school welcomed Newtown primary school to take part in a hurling blitz featuring the 3rd class boys and girls. County coaches Colm Gaskin, Garrett Doyle and our own Gerry Curry organised the event. We were blessed with good weather on the day and the blitz was a great success with about 60 kids in total taking part. The blitz mainly concentrated on ground hurling with a small bit of lifting and striking towards the end of the blitz. It is great to see so many children develop their hurling skills and having fun at the same time. It is welcoming to see Newtown establishing hurling at juvenile level. Our own clubman and county hurler Ronan Keddy has being influential in this hurling development with our neighbours. Thanks to Kilcoole primary school for the use of their facilities and thanks to the teachers from both schools in making this an enjoyable event and best wishes to Newtown in their efforts to develop hurling in the school and the club.
