Junior A
Our junior (A) hurlers were involved in a cracking must win game against Emly in the curtain raiser to the Senior West hurling final in Sean Treacy Park on Sunday last. Both sides served up some superb fare throughout the game with no quarter asked or given.There was not a puck of a ball between the sides over the 60 minutes so it was no surprise
therefore that the match finished in a draw which sadly resulted in our lads being knocked out of the competition. The final score was Kickhams 0-21 Emly 1-18. This was Emlys first team and our second , so the lads can be proud of their efforts on the day.
Golf Classic.
Thanks to all who supported our recent Golf Classic, it was a great success.

Kickhams Camogie


The Junior Championship has kicked off with 2 rounds completed. In the first game Kickhams travelled to the Ragg to play Drom. In a game that Kickhams were slow to take control of, it wasn’t until mid way in the second half that the girls upped their performance to emerge victorious on a scoreline of 3.04 to 0.06. Last weekend in Dundrum, Kildangan travelled to play the 2nd round, & in a better more cohesive performance, Kickhams claimed maximum points finishing 2.09 to 2.01.

Round 3 of the championship will see the girls play Clonoulty in Clonoulty. This game is fixed for Clonoulty next weekend but at time of writing no date has been confirmed.

The U16A championship also started last week with our team combined with New Inn playing Drom in the first round. Despite our girls starting brightly, Drom took control of the game & claimed full honours on a score line of 4.06 to 1.02.The next game for the combo is at home to Burgess next Tuesday 31st.
