Our U21's play cappa/Treacys in Annacarthy next sunday at 12 noon.



Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickhams will hold their annual Sale of work/ Wheel of Fortune and Firewood auction on Sunday the 30th November.


As with every other year we are asking landowners or anyone with access to firewood to please donate some trailer loads if at all possible.

We are willing to cut any unwanted firewood if you cannot do so yourself. Please contact Tony Farrell @ 087-9399836, Tommy Hayes @ 087-7934739, Kevin Farrell @ 087-6857564, Pat McCormack @ 087-7986234, Pat Ryan 087-0527989 or Mgt Hayes 087-2775971 

The Kickhams firewood auction with its tractor and car trailer loads of quality hard wood, all blocked and split is a great fundraiser for the club and along with the Sale of work and Wheel of Fortune has contributed greatly to reducing the outstanding balance of the financial debt owed by the club. A debt that was necessarily accrued during the development works that included the purchase of lands from Coillte Teo to develop a new field as well as the works that were carried out on the entire property, New spectator Stand, Dressing rooms, Perimeter fencing, hurling wall and much more all to ensure that the playing and meeting facilities at Kickham Park in Dundrum are of the highest quality and are being enjoyed and appreciated by all within the entire club, including Juvenile, Camogie as well as the Senior section of the

Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickham GAA Club. So in the coming weeks we will be holding meetings to organize the various events on the day and we would appeal to all involved in or with an interest in Gaelic games in our Parish to please come along, get involved with your club and help our native games to continue to proper in our Parish and community.



We would appreciate any donations for The wheel of fortune, biscuits, sweets, hampers, farm produce, drinks, shrubs, toys, tools any unwanted gifts in good condition which can be used as prizes on the wheel, All donations can be left into Scout Hall on Sat 29th Nov or Sun morning 30th

Also we would appreciate items of baking for the cake sale, cakes, breads, tarts, buns, flans, scones, swiss roll's, pavlova's cheesecakes or any other confectionery, Baking donations can be dropped to Scout hall Sunday morning or given to any committee member,

As with all fundraising it is the volunteers that make it a success, the club wishes to thank you for your help in previous years and hopes it will continue this year,
