Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickhams will hold their annual Sale of work/ Wheel of Fortune and Firewood auction on Sunday the 17th 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.
With this present dry spell fields are very drivable throughout the Parish and we are willing to cut any unwanted firewood if you cannot do so
yourself. Please contact Tommy Hayes @ 087-7934739 , Kevin Farrell @ 087-6857564 , Pat Mc Cormack @ 087-7986234 , or Sean Breen @ 087-2646441 .
The Kickhams firewood auction with its tractor and car trailer loads of quality hard wood as well as Spruce for stoves, 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.


Our annual fundraising tickets raffle will take place at the Sale of work on Sunday the 17th of November. There are great prizes including a 32”
television as first prize and a number of cash and spot prize as well. We would ask all members to please collect some tickets from the club
officers and help make this another success.


All roads led to Ragg Camogie Pirtch o Saturday as the Kickham Girls took on a much fancied NewInn team as they had previously beaten our girls.
the game was played in adverse weather conditions but that didn’t stop the intensely of both teams. The game started evenly with both teams scoring
a point until an Eimear Heffernan free landed into the NewInn net. Ellie Hadnett in goals had a solid game and pulled off a great save to keep
Kickhams in the match. The Kickham backs of Megan McCormack and SarahMae Crosse held the NewInn forwards at bay with Ciara Ryan and Sinead Furlong
dominating in the halfback line. Midfield kept winning possession with Eimear Heffernan outstanding and Rebecca Farrell winning ball all over the
field. The forwards kept the NewInn backs under pressure with Caoimhe McCarthy and Caoimhe McCormack foraging for possession and unlucky not to
score more. Keri-Ann Walshe was a constant threat to the NewInn defence ably assisted by Leonie Farrell. Halftime score Kickhams 1-01 to 0-01

The Kickham girls kept up the pressure assisted by the subs in the dugout ‘shouting and cheering’ them along in the 2nd half. The girls showed great
courage and determination in teribleconditions. The NewInn girls had no answer to our aggression and ran out winners 1-05 to 0-02. Jubilant
celebrations at the end showed Captain Keri-Ann lift the Trophy. Great credit to the panel of girls and their manager Mitchel Heffernan ably
assisted by John McCormack, Kevin McCarthy, Sheena Ryan,Lisa Gleeson and Margaret O Carroll. ‘UP THE KICKHAMS’
