Recent Local Schools Indoor Camogie Blitz:
There was Great Camogie on display recently in Saile from our local primary schools.
It’s fantastic to see all four schools playing in this competition.
There was nothing between each school as any one of them could have won this year.
It was great to see each school giving every girl an equal chance to play for their school today.
Summercove and Dunderrow contested the final with Summercove winning it by a couple of goals.
A big thank you to all the schools for their help with these blitzes and to Saile for the use of the hall.
Thank you also to Micheal O Connor for coordinating the blitz

Recent Indoor Carrigdhoun Camogie Blitz:
Well done to our local Carrigdhoun schools who took part in the Allianz Sciath na Scol 3rd Class Indoor Camogie Blitz in Riverstick recently.
Every girl played with super skill and showed great teamwork! 👏🏻👏🏻
There were teams from Balinspittle NS, Scoil Mhuire na nGrást Belgooly, Scoil Eoin Innishannon and Gaelscoil Chionn tSáile!
Great Photos on Kinsale GAA Facebook page.
Are you someone who always wanted to volunteer and help out Kinsale GAA Club…………..but Coaching/Training or becoming involved in the Admin side of things namely committees/attending meetings is just not your ‘cup of tea’ or time constraints don’t allow it …………well the following might just be for you!
The club is looking for volunteers to help out with the up-keep/maintenance of the pitches on a regular basis. This would involve cutting the grass, lining the pitches for matches and in general keeping the grounds at Bandon Road and Dunderrow in good condition (all machinery etc provided by club). This job can be shared between as many people as possible and people could arrange their own times for helping out when it suits them.
If this sounds like the ‘type of help’ you would enjoy doing for Kinsale GAA – please contact Laurence Murphy on 087-9056737. With the Season already underway it would be great to get more people involved in helping out. Thank you.
Kinsale 10 Mile Road Race
Don’t forget to support this fantastic event on Sunday 24th February – This great event is being organised by our Local Clubs Kinsale/Riverstick AC and Kinsale Tri-Club and its all to raise money for the new Running Track at Kinsale Community School – a huge benefit to our community and all local clubs.
