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.


Our U10 panel travelled to Boherlahan on Saturday to a Co. Blitz. Sixteen teams took part from all around Tipperary . Much the same format as the Moira Cahill blitz with four groups of four and top team to qualify for the semi finals. Our girls topped their group after wins over Silvermines ,Fethard and NewInn to reach the semi-final against Brian Borus. They overcame this match to meet the host club Boherlahan in the Final.

Well Done Girls and a Big Thank You to the Boherlahan Club for a wonderful blitz .
