Finals Heartbreak

The Cumann na mBunscol finals didn't go the way of Kildalkey today, 14th June. Despite two excellent performance, Kildalkey were unable to prevent Baconstown and Trim retaining their titles again.

First up was Baconstown at 1.15. Kildalkey started off extremely well scoring a smashing point through Andrea. However, two goals from Baconstown put them firmly in the driving seat. It was then that Kildalkey showed their mettle. Scoring some excellent points through Lauren, they pulled the deficit back to two points at half time. Shortly after half time, Lauren kicked home a goal to bring the sides level - however, a scrappy goal from Baconstown put them back in front and, try as they might, Kildalkey could not get another score. It ended 1-4 to 3-1, Kildalkey getting more scores than their opponents but just not enough goals. Brilliantly lead by captains Danielle and Andrea, both of whom were outstanding today in the humid conditions, the girls can be very proud of their efforts.

The boys then took on the team who defeated them last year in the corresponding fixture. Starting brightly, the Kildalkey boys then conceded two quick fire goals, leaving them eight points down after ten minutes. However, they boys like the girls before them, showed their determination and clawed the deficit back to five at half time (2-4 to 1-2), with some brilliant points from  Niall and a great goal from Ciaran. Conor was showing his strength at full back, catching and clearing some brilliant balls. Niall got a great point after half time to cut the deficit again but unfortunately, the next score was a Trim goal which left too big a mountain to climb for Kildalkey and, try as they might, they could not close the gap. The full time whistle sounded, leaving the final score 3-8 to 1-3 in Trim's favour.

Well done to both teams on reaching the finals and for doing so well today. Whilst not every final can't in victory, both teams can hold their heads high in the way they performed and battled in the humidity today.

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 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!!
