Check fixtures list in Nationalist for confirmation of date etc. See match report in the Nationalist.

Senior Hurling.
Our senior hurlers travelled  to NewInn on Sunday evening last to play Cashel King Cormac’s in the first round of the West championship. Unfortunately despite a bright start we did not manage to compete in key positions around the field with a very eager Cashel team and though we kept in touch up until the final stages of the game,  we were beaten on the score 0-19 to 0-14. Team : Patrick Ryan, Sean Keogh, Jason Loughman, Brian Horgan, Nigel Hayes, Eoin Carew, Michael Shanahan(Capt), Tommy Comerford (0-6 all frees), Shane Morrissey, Patrick O’Brien, Damian Mc Grath, Peter Comerford (0-4,0-2 frees), Johnny Ryan, Dan Breen (0-1), Paul O’Dwyer(0-2), Subs used :David Butler(0-1) for Shane Morrissey, Cathal Morrissey for Tommy Comerford, Patrick Ryan for Patrick O’Brien.We have a big game coming up in the next round against Eire Og on Sunday next @3pm in Cappawhite and given our opponents display in their victory over Clonoulty in their first round game a major improvement from all our players will be needed if  we are to harbour ambitions of getting a victory from the game.But we are sure that our supporters will travel in large numbers and hopefully our players will respond. See match report in the Nationalist. 

Junior Co League.

Our junior’s kept the hurling flag flying with victory over Cashel King Cormac’s in the Co League  in Leahy Park Cashel on Saturday evening last. This was their second victory in as many games and are looking good for a play off place. Unfortunately I could not be there so I only know the result which was Kickhams 1-22 Cashel 3-12, a great game by all accounts and the lads did themselves proud on the night, well done to all concerned.

Minor (B) football.
Afterlo sing on the previous Wednesday night our Minors knew a win over neighbours Eire Og Annacarty would keep them in line for a semi final berth. Straight from the throw in they set about their task and led at the break on the score 1-8 to 0-0. The second half saw Kickhams take their scores  where, as in the first half, Eire Og missed scoreable chances  which would have made the game much closer. The  final whistle  saw Kickhams winners on the score 1-15 to 0-4. Team and subs used : Conor Moore, David Ryan, Oisin Slattery, Stephen Griffey, Killian Loughman, Eoin Carew, Thomas Hayes,  Patrick Ryan(0-3), Dean Thompson(0-3), Fionn Hogan, Sean Compton(0-4), Brendan Griffin(0-1), Evan Hickey, Walter O’Carroll(0-2), Conor Butler (1-2), Subs used Andre McCloud for Sean Compton(inj),  Paddy Tuohy for Fionn Hogan (inj) Alex Leibherr for Patrick Ryan.

Please contact Margaret Hayes, Michael Shanahan, Richard Moloney or any Club Officer ASAP. Thank you.


We have updated our website We will continue to include up to date results & fixtures for all clubs teams as well as all other club activities.
