Third and Fourth Class match versus Dunboyne
Well done to our third and fourth class hurling team who took on Dunboyne in a Cumann na mBunscol match lately.
In what was a great competitive match, Kildalkey were losing at half time on a scoreline of 1-3 to 0-1.But in a terrific second half performance, Kildalkey upped the ante and were able to post 1-5 without reply.
Well done to the third and fourth class hurlers who have been training every Friday since the summer. The future is bright!
All Ireland Final Excitement
The pupils in School Two have been showing their colours ahead of the All Ireland final on September 18th.
In particular, fourth class have been singing songs all week in preparation for the big day and wore in their colours on Friday, 16th September.
Even the notice board was decorated!!
Funnily enough, most of the students wore in the green and red of Mayo! We're not sure quite why this was but hopefully, it is a good sign for the upcoming match on Sunday 18th September!
Positive Start to Camogie Campaign
Well done to the camogie players who started the defence of their title with a great win against Boardsmill.
Captained by Robyn and Sarah, the girls got off to a whirlwind start with goals from Chloe, Caoimhe and Leah. Further scores left the half time score 4-1 to 0-1.
Boardsmill got an early goal in the second half but the girls rallied again to get further goals with Clodagh, Robyn and Róisín among the scorers.
The full time score was 8-2 to 2-2. Well done to the girls on such a good opening to the championship!
Positive Start to Hurling Campaign
Well done to our hurling team who have had a very positive beginning to the Cumann na mBunscol hurling.
This year, the hurling is being played in September and October, as opposed to May and June.
On Monday, 12th September, a depleted Kildalkey travelled to Navan where they took on Cannistown. With just fourth and fifth class players, they edged the first half 1-1 to no score. Once four sixth class players joined them for the second half, Kildalkey never looked back and won on a scoreline of 3-7 to 1-0.
The following day, Kildalkey travelled to Dunboyne. Here, a powerful first half performance put them in a strong position. The introduction of fourth and fifth class subs did not hinder the team in any way and they won well for a finish. Well done to Kildalkey on a very positive start to the Cumann na mBunscol competitions in Autumn 2016!
Well done Evan!
Well done to Evan Geoghegan from our Hurling team last Spring.
As a result of the boys winning the Mini 7s last year, Evan was picked to play in Croker Park. By the luck of the draw, he was selected to at the All Ireland final!
Wearing the Kilkenny jersey, Evan played in front of 80,000 people and looked very comfortable in Croke Park!
Well done to Evan on a great performance and hopefully it won't be his last time playing in Croke Park!
