Girls Football – Our first U10’s Blitz a huge success

What a huge success for girls football today, Saturday 13th April in Kill GAA Club with their first ever U10’s Blitz.

There were over 85 girls playing 9 matches this morning in the Club Ground.  31 of these girls were from our own Club.  Girls football are packing in the numbers.  The way it is looking now it bodes very well for the future of Girls Gaelic football in our club.

Our visitors Raheens, Sarsfield and Eadestown played excellent football and it was a pleasure to have them take part.  The games were played in great spirit and plenty of fun was had by everyone. 

Big thank you to Alan Jordan for the goodie bags and the parents for all the sambos, cakes and goodies and not to mention the help with serving out teas and coffees to all the away teams.  The three away teams were very impressed and very complimentary to us.

A final big thank you to Derek, Ronan, Conor, Yvonne, Jackie & Sinead. Fantastic coaching and super encouragement to our girls.   May it long continue into the future.

Alan Brogan shares his wealth of knowledge to the U11 and U12 Boys in Kill GAA Club

On Tuesday evening, 40 young boys braved the cold elements in what was described as one of the most talked about event of their session. 

They had heard whispers of who was coming with an atmosphere that can only be described like Christmas Eve and the boys couldn’t sleep with excitement.

Alan Brogan, one of Dublin’s top players, kindly gave his time to come the and share his wealth of knowledge to the under 11&12 Boys on the greatest amateur sport in the world (OK I’m being biased here).

He spoke about this experience and training, having mastered “All Ireland Titles” with the Dublin team.  The pride he had in his club is evident through his passion for the sport.

He gave his free time to the boys, sharing his experiences within the sport and how he developed into the player and coach he became.  Each boy proudly showed him what they were made of. Coaches beamed with delight as the Kids performed for him.

Alan brought the kids through some drills on passing and catching and all in all the team focused on team work and working with each other

To have someone as experienced as Alan join in a training session for the kids was remarkable. I’m sure some people would question why have a Dublin player come to a Kildare club.  Experience and coaching come from all levels and all counties. To raise awareness within children that the GAA holds no bounds.  That talent must be recognised with players from other counties while hold pride in the Jersey you wear.  That respect comes in all forms and you can gain knowledge and experience from everyone (not just people in your county).

Alan was once a child with dreams and ambitions but though dedication, focus and hard work his dreams became a reality.  This is what we are hoping for.  Kids aspire to become their idols. They dream to be on the same playing pitch as them. Tuesday evening their dream was reality.

Parents stood proud on the side-lines (frozen to the bone) but the kids put on a great performance with Alan commenting on how great the bunch of lads they are.  To be honest, I think he is right.  Each child turns up for training come hail, rain or shine.  The commitment they put into their club is truly outstanding and not to be questioned.  Our club are proud of all our outstanding talented young players (not just on our team).  

The GAA is about bringing people together. I guarantee one day we will see the same bunch of lads lining out in Croke Park, representing the Lilly Whites (and taking on the Dubs 😂)

Kill GAA is looking for your support this year with the 2019 Kildare Club Draw.

At present, our lights are not up to the National Playing Standards to play certain league matches.  As a result, in the darker evening, we are faced with having to find pitches away to play these matches. 

The Executive Committee present and past have been fundraising and saving to upgrade these floodlights for a couple of years now. The dream would be to have the work completed before our evenings get short again.

Match Report – Intermediate Camogie League Div 2 Rd1

Donard Glen 4-06 to 3-04 Kill

Venue: Donard Glen GAA @ 8pm

Kill played Donard Glen on Monday last, in Donard Glen GAA pitches.  Kill suffered a narrow 5-point defeat.

The weather conditions were appalling, just before the match started hailstones fell, and it was followed by what can only be described as torrential rain for the full match.

The girls braved the elements and went out fighting.  Our ladies had possession a lot of the time in the first half, but it wasn’t meant to be.  The goals were only going in for Donard Glen. At the end of the first half the Score was Donard Glen 3-03 to 0-04 Kill.

This did not dampen their spirits; our ladies went back out and played as if the sun was shining.  Each and every one of the Kill team pulled it together, which enabled Michaela Kavanagh to score three goals in the second half.  Great game girls. Your passion for Camogie is fantastic.

Match Report – Men’s SFL Div 4 Rd2

Kill 3-09 Suncroft 3-14

Kill senior footballers played host to Suncroft on Sunday last and both sides served up an excellent game of football. Kill opened the brightly and a fine team goal finished by Matthew Ryan put the home side in the lead after 5 minutes.

Kill failed to build on that early lead and Suncroft through county player Fionn Dowling equalised after 15 minutes to the Kill net.

Suncroft with the wind on their backs lead by 4 points with 5 minutes remaining in the opening half but three quick-fire Alan Wren scores brought the gap back to 1-05 to 1-06 at the break.

The opening quarter of the second half produced end to end football, and early scores from Suncroft were cancelled out with a goal from Dara Challaneer after good work by Stephen Skelton.

Moments later Kevin Crowe put Kill back into the lead with a well-taken point. However, from that point onwards the visitors took the game by the scruff of the neck and rattled off 2-04 to lead by 9 points with time almost up, but another Wren point from a free followed by a goal from Matthew Ryan reduced the gap to 5 points.

Scorers for Kill

  • M Ryan 2-02
  • D Challaneer 1-1
  • A Wren 0-5
  • K Crowe 0-1

Best for Kill were

  • M Cocoman
  • S Skelton
