Cumann na mBunscol Finals

Well done to both our hurling and camogie teams on reaching the finals this year. Both are undefeated so far this year and they deserve great praise for getting this far. The finals take place this Saturday, 14th June, in Trim GAA club.

Our girls are in action first against Baconstown. That match is at 1.15 and the girls are asked to be there for 12.30. 

Our boys are then in action against St. Michael's Trim. That match kicks off at 2.15 and the boys are asked to be there for 1.30. We would hope that the girls might stay in after their finals to cheer on the boys and that the boys might arrive early to cheer on the girls!

Afterwards, win, lose or draw, we are heading back to Kildalkey where the Parents' Association, along with some very kind and generous sponsors have organised food and treats for the two panels in the Village Inn. This will get going about 3.30 - thanks very much to all who have contributed to this.

The very best of luck to both teams - we are very proud of you!!

Hurling and Camogie Success

Well done to the boys' hurling team and to the girls' camogie teams who have made it to the Cumann na mBunscol finals.

The boys made it to the final by topping the Division 1 final. They beat Dunboyne, Athboy and then beat Trim after extra time in an absorbing encounter in Trim.

The girls made it through their division by beating Boyerstown, Gaelscoil Éanna, Kilmessan and Moylagh. They then won their semi final against Boardsmill, in a keenly fought encounter. 

Well done to both teams and many thanks to the parents who have offered lifts constantly. The finals will be played on Saturday, 14th June in Trim GAA pitch. The girls are playing at 1.15 against Baconstown and the boys are playing at 2.15 against St. Michael's Trim. More details will follow on the games.

Well done to both teams!

Girls' Mini 7s Champions!!

Well done to the girls' Mini 7s team who today won the Mini 7s Camogie championship.

Captained by Jessica and Amy, the girls were excellent throughout and managed to beat Kilmessan in an enthralling final that went to extra time.

To begin with, Kildalkey were drawn in a group with Rath Cairn, St. Mary's Trim and Gaelscoil Tulach na n-Og. Playing Rath Cairn first, the girls signalled their intent by posting 5-5 to no score with some terrific points from distance. They then played St. Mary's, Trim and though this was a tighter affair, they prevailed by 4-0 to 1-0. Finally, they played Gaelscoil Tulach na n-Óg for a place in the final. This was a very close match, played in horrible conditions, with Laura's first half goal proving to be the main difference between the sides.

And then there were two. The final was played and the girls faced off against Kilmessan. In what was a rip roaring encounter, Lauren got Kildalkey off to a great start when scoring a great goal. Kilmessan responded with a goal of their own, a great strike. Jessica then doubled on the ball in the air from Lauren's free to score the goal of the game (and probably the competition) and put Kildalkey a goal ahead at the break. Some resolute defending meant that Kildalkey held out for most of the second half (some of which was delayed due to an injury to a Kilmessan player - thankfully she is ok). However, with two minutes to go, Kilmessan struck for an equaliser to level the game. With no further scores, the final went to extra time. Kilmessan were first to register a score, pointing in the first minute. It was then that Kildalkey showed their mettle. Working the ball down to Jessica, she struck what proved to be the winning goal, the ball dipping under the bar. While Kilmessan battled on, it was to be Kildalkey's day.

All players contributed to the matches and played well over the course of the four matches. Jessica and Hollie shared the goalkeeping responsibilities and proved to be superb shotstoppers. Kayla, Sarah, Amy and Katie defended superbly throughout, conceding very little. Lauren and Hollie were tireless in the middle of the field and got some great score, while up front, Rachelle, Kate and Laura got some great scores and were aided and abetted by Hollie and Jessica also.

Afterwards, a trip to Supermacs was had and we then got the great news that Jessica had been selected to play in Croke Park at an All Ireland semi final in August.

Well done to all the team on this great achievement!!

Girls' Camogie Semi Final

Boys Mini 7s Champions!!!

Well done to the Boys Mini 7s team today, 8th April, who won the Mini 7s hurling competition in Meath.

Having beaten Gaelscoil na Bóinne and Rath Cairn yesterday in two closely fought games to get through to the finals, the boys were up against Dangan, Kilskyre and Dunboyne.

First up was Dangan. Playing against a stiff breeze, the boys did very well to counteract the breeze and went in at the break 1-1 to no score. They were then able to use the breeze to post long range points and finish out the game 1-6 to 0-1.

They then played Kilskyre. This time, Kildalkey had the breeze in the first half and utilsed it to their advantage to ensure a healthy half time lead. They closed out the game in the second half to leave the final score 4-2 to no score.

The final was then played against Dunboyne. Playing with the wind, Kildalkey put over some great scores in the first half. However, a fortuitous goal for Dunboyne, along with some great defending by Dunboyne and some unfortunate wides for Kildalkey meant that Kildalkey went in at the break leading only by a goal 1-3 to 1-0. It was then that we saw the real measure of this team. Facing into what seemed like a gale force breeze, they scored a goal straight away from the throw in. Though Dunboyne responded in kind, Kildalkey upped the workrate and won some fantastic ball at midfield and worked some glorious scores. In the end, Kildalkey prevailed on a scoreline of 4-5 to 3-2.

Well done to all the players from Lorcan and Kelvin in goal, to the defence of the two Conors and Gavin. Niall, captain for the day, was a colossus in midfield throughout and was assisted superbly by Lee. Up front, Adam had some great scores in all matches and was aided and abetted by the high fielding Aaron.

Afterwards, Niall was presented with the plaque and a trip to Supermacs was had. Niall was also selected to represent Meath in Croke Park at an All Ireland Hurling Semi Final this year.

Well done to the boys on today's great achievement!
