Juvenile Club Notes.

Tommy Kelly Tournament.

Despite the inclement weather conditions the Tommy Kelly Memorial Tournament was played off in the field on Saturday last. This years U/10 and U/12 teams took part and all had a great day.
More details next week.


The weather last Saturday unfortunately forced the cancellation of the U/8 blitz in Littleton . However, our end of year presentation to the entire panel took place in Knockavilla hall. It was great to see all the players and their parents present. Speaking before the presentation, Chairman Seamus Furlong thanked Conor Carroll and Kieran Slattery for all their work with the panel throughout the year. Also, the huge support from all the parents was acknowledged and appreciated. Each of the 30 panelists received their own trophy to mark their involvement with Kickhams U/8 2011.


Craft Fair. 

Dundrum Craft Group will hold their annual craft and food fair in the Scout Hall Dundrum on Sunday the 30th of October. This event which has gone from strength to strength since its inception promises to live up to its reputation once again. This year we will have an even greater variety of fare on offer. The regulars will still be there like the Child Art competition which always turns up great talent. This year’s theme is “Autumn Fruits”. The Hospice Stall will once again take centre stage and we are again looking for donations of Cakes, buns and all sorts of confectionary, all which will be sold to help raise funds for this very necessary service in our community.
 As far as the exhibitor stalls go there are still a few places left. The qualifying criteria for anyone wishing to exhibit are, the stalls must only contain Irish products, food or services produced or provided by the exhibitor themselves. Details and application forms can be obtained from Michael Carew on 062-71187.
