Kiltale HC AGM 2018 – change of date

This will be held on Thursday 18th Jan at 8pm in Kiltale Clubhouse.

Kiltale Hurling Club invite all members/players/mentors/parents and new members to the AGM. The club needs more members on its committee to allow the club develop.  It needs people to come on board to assist the club in fundraising, ground development/maintenance, teams, etc – all that is involved in keeping a club going.

If members wish to nominate people for any position in the club, you can send your nominations to the club secretary: text or phone 086 1205552, or email

Please take this opportunity and help the club out in a positive and productive way as it stand the committee needs to grow and the club can only move forward by people coming on board to help. The opportunity for all is at the AGM.

We hope to see new faces at the AGM and NEW members on the committee for 2018.

Update on development of new grounds: The process involving Teagasc and the Chief State Solicitor’s Office, with regard to the change of ownership of the new lads, is nearly complete. All correspondence has been signed by both parties, and the club’s solicitors are completing the final part of the paperwork to get the issue with the Land Folio numbers completed.  This will then allow the club to start the work on the dressing rooms and new pitch. It has been a long process getting all resolved – all of which has been totally out of the control of Kiltale Hurling Club – but thankfully we are near completion and the benefits of having the planned work done will benefit all.
