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. The Final
was very intense with scores coming early from both sides. Our girls drove on to outscore the home side to win the first ‘Jim Lahart Trophy’.
Well Done Girls and a Big Thank You to the Boherlahan Club for a wonderful blitz .

Our U12 team played Boherlahan in their group matches last Friday evening in Dundrum. They performed with strength to emerge winners on the night.
Match next weekend against Cashel .

The Junior team played Eire Og Nenagh last Sunday morning in Dundrum and came out convincing winners 4-20 to 1-08
Well done Ladies keep it going

Badminton continues every Monday and Thursday night from 8pm in the Scout Centre Dundrum. New members very welcome.

Sincere thanks to all who supported the recent church gate collection for Haven Haiti which was held at all masses in Knockavilla and Donaskeigh.
The sum of 546 euro was raised and all will go to helping our volunteers rebuild a badly damaged orphanage in Haiti which is still trying to
recover after the powerful January 12, 2010 earthquake which laid waste to the capital Port-au-Prince as well as surrounding villages and rural
homesteads killing over two hundred thousand people and displacing many hundreds of thousands more.
