Trespass in field. We would ask that  those who  are trespassing in the field  and car park when the gates are locked to please stop this practise, climbing high walls / fences etc is not a safe activity and last Sunday a young child who somehow climbed or was lifted in, was locked inside the field and could not get out. Parents are asked to keep an eye on what their children are up to as Kickhams GAA Club cannot take any responsibility for any possible injuries received from climbing an 8 foot boundary wall into private property. Not many responsible people would want someone clambering over their backwall, especially if they had not got permission. There has also been some vandalism within the property in recent times and the appropriate authorities have been notified.
Please note that when the field is open all are welcome.



Please remember with intercounty championship up & running, only paid up members will be eligible for club tickets for All ticket matches.
