Well done to our brilliantly talented u12 team who last Wednesday beat St Annes in the county final replay, played in Taghmon.

Once again this was another fantastic game of football from start to finish with both teams showing great skill and determination. Kilmore were deserving winners on a scoreline of 1-6 to 0-6. This is the third year in a row that the Kilmore girls have won this county title which is a major achievement and the future looks very bright for the club.

The panel was : Amy Mulligan, Saoirse Foley, Ellen Berry, Megan Doyle, Amy Cassidy, Derbhal Cassidy, Alex Brady, Regina Rochford, Emma Bates,Olivia McDonnell, Rebecce Burke, Lorraine Power, Grace Barry, Imogen Fanning, Orla Fortune, Amy Cousins, Sophie Boxwell, Anna Bates, Emily Bates, Abbie Troy, Abbie Jones, Kira Bates Crosbie and Grace Cousins.

Our u12 girls have been picked to play at half time during the all Ireland ladies football finals on 7th October in Croke Park. Unfortunately only 10 girls can play on the day but the 10 chosen are looking forward to representing our club with pride. The girls would like to thank Gayle Daly for putting together a video which helped them win this day out.

Hard luck to our u14 team who were beaten in their county final by a very strong Ballygarret team. The girls will play in a 7 a side competition in Dublin on 6th October and the following day will travel to Croke Park to enjoy the all Ireland ladies football finals.


From all at the club we would like to say a big well done to the Under 12 girls who won the county final against St. Annes in Taghmon last Wednesday night. Having previously drawn, this game was a replay and the Annes girls were formidable opponents. Our girls came out on top, as always showing tremendous skill and great heart. Well done girls.


There will be Pongo and refreshments in the meeting room beside the church after First Friday Mass on 5th October.
