Club News 1 February 2021

Player profiles: With on the field activity a bit quiet at the moment, we’ve asked some of our players about how they become involved with the club as some of their experiences. First up is adult camogie player Bronagh Daly. Bronagh’s Kilkenny upbringing appears to have ingrained a love of the small ball. She also explains how following a nearly 24-year absence she decided to pick up her hurley again. Read her story

Sympathies: The club would like to extend its sympathies to Philip Smullen on the death of his sister Helen Nolan. Philip is a prominent member of the club serving as a player and mentor for many years. He is also responsible for keeping our grounds in excellent condition. His sons Craig, Scott and James are also club players. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam.…/helen-nolan-newtownmountkennedy…/448796

National club draw extended: The draw for all the great prizes in the GAA’s national draw has been extended from 10 March to 4 June. The decision was made to give clubs the opportunity (hopefully) to be able to sell tickets in person. So now you’ve got even more time to buy a €10 ticket to win prizes like a car or All-Ireland tickets. You can buy them here

Weekly lotto: The winning numbers in this week’s lotto were 4, 3, 15 & 20. The weekly cash winners were Dermot Blake and Gillian English. Next Monday’s jackpot is €12,000. Get your tickets HERE.

Yours in sport,
