Weekly Notes!

It is fabulous that our beloved club is back on, but we remind you that the emergency is not over, it’s just in a lull and is very likely to come back to some degree, so we must remain vigilant and follow the public health and the GAA’s advise on hygiene.
Each team in the club has been appraised about what is required from the players and our mentors. Please follow the advice and do our best to keep us safe. Remember, if you feel unwell, remain at home and contact your GP…. DO NOT GO OUT WITH YOUR TEAM! Follow the guidelines and keep safe.
Best wishes to our under 16 team who take on Good Counsel tomorrow at 7pm in Pc. Ciceam in their opening 1st round of championship. Another of our great improvers, the 16’s are all well prepared for this game. Good luck to Eamonn and all his team.
Congratulations to our senior mens and ladies teams who both had convincing wins during the week in championship. Please keep an eye out on social media for their next fixtures.
Commiserations to our minor footballers, who bowed out of championship on Sunday morning following an unlucky defeat to St. Sylvesters. Congratulations to Syls, and the very best of luck in the rest of the championship. This could quite easily be considered the most improved team in the club over the last couple of years, so chin up lads. You’ve a lot to be proud of.

A huge thank you to a certain Mr. Paddy Small, who gave up his time to assist with our under 13’s/14’s boys and girls football camp in Poppintree park during the week. Paddy’s class and skill set made the camp even more enjoyable and a great learning experience for all the participants! Thanks Paddy!

Our under 10 boys had 3 great games against St. Finnians on Saturday morning and were ably assisted by 3 of our under 9’s who stepped up to help out. Thank you Tadgh, Devin and George! Flowing football in the sunshine was a joy for all to see.
Finally, we would like to offer our condolences to the Quinlans and all their extended family and friends on the passing of Phil Quinlan during the week. Phil was a lifelong supporter and an activist in the club back in his heyday, and his passing brings great sorrow to his many friends inside and out of the club. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

  1. What an achievement in the modern day to provide 6 wonderful and vital players to Dublin’s quest for 5-in -a row. Kickhams should be so proud of these gentlemen you helped nurture and who are part of GAA history. Well done to all their mentors and families for being a huge part of who they are .Ballymun stands out head and shoulders above all in their contribution to this amazing milestone.

    1. Overlooked again? When were you overlooked before? And I’m not a mind reader, I need to be told these things before I can report them. As a club we are all inclusive and have no preference for any gender, creed, colour or sexuality etc.
