Trespass in field.
We would ask that  those who  are trespassing in the field  and car park when the gates are locked to please stop this practise, climbing high walls / fences etc is not a safe activity and last Sunday a young child who somehow climbed or was lifted in, was locked inside the field and could not get out.
Parents are asked to keep an eye on what their children are up to as Kickhams GAA Club cannot take any responsibility for any possible injuries received from climbing an 8 foot boundary wall into private property. Not many responsible people would want someone clambering over their backwall, especially if they had not got permission. There has also been some vandalism within the property in recent times and the appropriate authorities have been notified.
Please note that when the field is open all are welcome.


We have updated our website We will continue to include up to date results & fixtures for all clubs teams as well as all other club activities. Why don’t you take a look and let us know what you think. Tell family & friends that may be away and would like to keep up to date with club happenings.If you spot any errors let us know and we can correct them.

Dundrum Tidy Towns.
Well done to all who are giving of their time and effort  to have Dundrum village and its environs looking so well . The combination of Dundrum  Tidy towns, Station Road Residents Assoc and our local Fas workers can hold their heads high at the results of their labours. We hope that all those who live in  or visit the village will respect the works that have been carried out . The judging of the tidy towns is underway throughout
the country at the moment  so it is important that  the village looks its very best  in the coming weeks and months.



Jake Ryan of Knockavilla will travel with other Concern volunteers to Kenya in July. As you can imagine soccer is as big there as in other countries, especially the English Premier League, La Liga, etc, but the majority of those in need cannot afford any of their favourite clubs merchandise. Jake is hoping to make a collection of  new, old or unwanted jerseys,  preferably soccer ones (all sizes accepted) so that the children will have the same chances as our own to feel connected to their heros and perhaps dream a little. Jake is son of Christopher and Helen Ryan who are delighted that he has been selected travel. Please drop any jerseys into the Ryan home in Knockavilla. Your usual generous support would be greatly appreciated.
