Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickhams and Drom and Inch served up a cracking game of hurling in this Co. Quarterfinal played in Drombane on Sunday afternoon last. With the sides deadlocked at full time the game went to extra time and again as the Referee blew for the end of the game both teams had  lived to fight another day on the score Kickhams 4-17 to Drom 5-14. The replay has been fixed for Saturday afternoon in leahy park Cashel. Please come along and shout on the lads 

Congrats to our U/14 hurling team who were victorious in the Ballacolla 9 a side tournament in Co. Laois on Sunday last, They played Abbeyleix in the first round winning on the score 9-6 to 2-6, then Moyne Templetuohy were beaten 13-7 to 1-4 this win qualified them for the final where they carried on their impressive displays with an emphatic 8-6 to 1-5 win over Galmoy. Well done to all concerned.  

Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickhams will hold their annual Sale of work/ Wheel of Fortune and Firewood auction on Sunday the 17th November. As with every other year we are asking landowners or anyone with access to firewood to please donate some trailer loads if at all possible. With this present dry spell fields are very drivable throughout the Parish and we are willing to cut any unwanted firewood if you cannot do so yourself.
Please contact Tommy Hayes @  087-7934739 , Kevin Farrell @  087-6857564 , Pat Mc Cormack @ 087-7986234 , or Sean Breen @  087-2646441 .
The Kickhams firewood auction with its tractor and car trailer loads of quality hard wood as well as Spruce for stoves, all blocked and split is a great fundraiser for the club and along with the Sale of work and Wheel of Fortune has contributed greatly to reducing the outstanding balance of the financial debt owed by the club. A debt that was necessarily accrued during the development works that included the purchase of lands from Coillte Teo to develop a new field as well as the works that were carried out on the entire property, New spectator Stand, Dressing rooms, Perimeter fencing, hurling wall and much more all to ensure that the playing and meeting facilities at Kickham Park in Dundrum are of the highest
quality and are being enjoyed and appreciated by all within the entire club, including Juvenile, Camogie as well as the Senior section of the Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickham GAA Club. So in the coming weeks we will be holding meetings to organize the various events on the day and we would appeal to all involved in or with an interest in Gaelic games in our Parish to please come along, get involved with your club and help our native games to continue to proper in our Parish and community.


Our annual fundraising tickets raffle will take place at the Sale of work on Sunday the 17th of November. There are great prizes including a 32” television as first prize and a number of cash and spot prize as well. We would ask all members to please collect some tickets from the club officers and help make this another success.


The Butlers Centra 5K walk in aid of the Irish Cancer Society’s Action Breast Cancer will take place on Sunday next the 13th of October @ 2pm from outside DJ and Marie Butlers Centra shop in Dundrum Village. Sponsorship forms are available from the shop and your support would be greatly appreciated for this very worthy cause.
