The officers and membership of Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickham GAA Club offers their deepest sympathies to the family of

Paddy O’ Dwyer late of Tipperary Town and formerly Curraghpoor Donaskeigh who died on the 8th of May. Paddy was 93 years

of age and in his youth back in Curraghpoor he and his childhood friends had a great love and passion for Gaelic games and

in particular hurling with Donaskeigh and the Kickhams. Those that remembered him playing described him as a skilful but

strong defender that could always be depended on to give his all for his team. He was an integral part of the Donaskeigh

hurling team that won the West Junior hurling title in 1941.He was also selected on West senior divisional teams that

competed in the interdivisional Miller shield competition and he also won Crosco Cups in the early 40s. As a mark of

respect to Paddy and the extended O’Dwyer Family, The club provided a guard of honour as his coffin, draped with the Kickham

flag, was brought to St Michael’s church in Tipperary Town. Paddy was one of nature’s gentlemen and will be sadly missed by

his family and his friends and acquaintances in the Parish of Knockavilla Donaskeigh. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dilis.     




Kickhams Under 16's defeated Golden on Saturday last to qualify for the Under 16 B West football final, due to be played

earlier this week, after compilation of this note. A victory would be most welcome for a very dedicated bunch of players

and team management.



Kickhams Under/12(B) and (C) teams played west finals in football on Sunday evening last in Golden against Eire Og/Annacarty

and Rockwell Rovers respectively. Though both teams tried their very best they were defeated on the night. A great effort

was made by everyone and all those involved deserve great praise.



The Kickhams Juvenile Club sponsored cycle was held in Dundrum on Sunday last May 11th. The three-in-one event drew a large

and very enthusiastic group of cyclists from far and near and the conditions were near perfect for young and old who enjoyed

the event immensely. It was the second year of this event, which is now envisaged to run on an annual basis for the future.

The club would like to thank the local Raparee Cycling Club in the parish, for their time, effort and support for this event;

it was much appreciated.
