Annual Underage Boys & Girls Fundraiser – The Golf Classic – See Poster Attached above for all the details


DATE:- Friday 25th May. Don’t forget to keep it free :-)!!!  


Calling all Golfers…………….Ladies Teams, Mens Teams, Family Teams, Mixed Teams – prizes for all sections .


Enter a team now and enjoy a fabulous days golf out in the fantastic Kinsale Golf Club, with a 3 course meal included in your entry fee. And of course lots of great prizes to be won also. 


It will be a great day out – plus of course all the bragging rights for the winners, so important :-)! This is a significant fundraiser for the Underage Section of the club – so please set those reminders in phones, mark the calendar and make sure you are free to take part. 


And for those non-golfers out there – you can also help out by sponsoring a Tee-Box sign for €50 (why not go halves with a family member or friend)!!!


Crucially all funds raised will go directly back into the club and will be ring-fenced for the Underage Section of the club both Boys and Girls – so the more money thats raised the more money we can use towards improving equipment, getting extra new training gear etc for our future stars!.


The club will also be looking for a number of volunteers to help organise this event – so please if you can help out let us know by replying to this email or text Laurence on 087-9056737 or Gearoid Condon 086-8325202.  This event has been very successful over the past few years  but the club is always looking for new ideas/suggestions to build on which may lead to more money being raised for our Boys & Girls Underage Section of the club.



Huge Congrats to our very own local legends Geogia Gould and Jenny Murphy – Munster Champs with Cork Minor Team!

Congrats to the Cork Minors who are Munster Champs after a dramatic victory over Kerry!

With 12 minutes to go, Kerry were 8 points up but Cork’s never say die attitude encouraged them to fight back and win by a single point, 1-12 to 2-8!

Jenny and Georgia played a crucial role in an epic final and Courceys Fiona Keating our near neighbours, who is also on the team, played a huge part in the end result!!

Summer Cúl Camp – 13th to 17thAugust 2018 – Half Full already!!:

The date for Kinsale GAAs Summer Cúl Camp this year is the  13th to 17h August 2018 – 10am to 2pm (Monday to Friday).

IMPORTANT NOTE:   Cúl Camp is for children from Age 6 (attending Primary School Junior Infants)  to Age 13. 

Children who have not yet started in Primary School Junior Infants are unfortunately too young to attend Cúl Camp.



Our Cúl Camp is proving very popular again this year. Since our last  post on 2nd May (74 places booked) there are now 109 places booked for the Camp in August.  So we are now half full already (maximum numbers for our Cúl Camp is 200 children)

The only way to secure your child/children’s places and avoid disappointment is to book on-line asap possible and guarantee your child/childrens places. While the club would dearly love to facilitate every single child that would like to do the Kinsale Cúl Camp – unfortunately once the camp is full…. its full! So please please please don’t leave it till the last minute.
