Yeah, It’s that time of the year again, the sun is out (well it was last week anyway!), the exams are on, THE CHAMPIONSHIP IS HERE!  Kingscourt open their campaign on Sunday 14th with a match against Lacken in Virginia at 2pm.


For the first time in a few years, Kingscourt approach the championship with some confidence and the hard work of the last few months has paid dividend as the Seniors are primed for league promotion.  However, everything boils down to the championship so there will be no letting up on the commitment of the players.  So come on, make the short trip to Virginia and cheer the side on and show your support


 The 14’s met Castlerahan in the League Shield last Saturday evening.  Unfortunately, missing some key players it was always going to be difficult and Castlerahan were just too strong on the day. 

Next up is the U-14 Regional seven a side Summer Blitzes.  Kingscourt have been drawn in the same group as Knockbride, Shercock & Bailieboro.  On Thursday 18th June, we will host these clubs in the first round of matches from 7pm – 9pm. 

The Girls U-12’s made it two wins from two with a great 1-7 to 0-3 victory away to Shercock last Sunday.  Another great team performance and the side is coming on very well.  Next Sunday they face Cuchullains at home at 6pm

The U-10’s headed North at the weekend to compete in the annual Newry Blitz.  On a miserable, wet day the side played four matches and having lost the first game, won the next two games without conceding a score.  That meant they had to beat host club, Newry Shamrocks, in their final game.  A super performance from the side saw the game go right to the wire before they were defeated by a solitary point. 

It was a great day for all, despite the poor weather and the performance of the whole team should see more good days for this side in the future. 

The U-8’s  continue training at 5.30pm on Wednesday evenings.
