Club Update

November 14, 2020

Despite no games currently being played, the work at improving our club continues:

  • Phase one of pitch 2 upgrade done, to be completed next Spring
  • New stay wires put at back of far goal pitch 2, though this may seem something small, actually vital as nets were unstable and at risk if we got a bad storm
  • Hurling walls – both astro turf surfaces will be replaced soon
  • New subsidised Kiltale tops for all the younger juvenile section
  • We’re looking at putting new lights around the track – there’s a sample LED light at the start of the track, we hope to upgrade all to these energy-saving, brighter lights
  • Future projects:- Walking track extension around pitch 3 – connecting to current track
  • Seating areas around track
  • How can YOU help?
  • Social membership for 2021 will be open next week on our website – valid from now until 31 Dec 2021 – at a cost of €50, less than a euro a week-
  • We will shortly be distributing the annual GAA National Draw tickets. At €10 each these are a fantastic fundraiser for the club as Croke Park put up the prizes and the club retains all of the proceeds – so every €10 goes directly to the club.
  • When you but a National Draw ticket you’re automatically entered into the Club Christmas Draw

Sad passing of Paddy Kelly Snr

October 23, 2020

It’s with sadness we report the passing of Paddy Kelly senior, the Grand Old Man of Meath Hurling.

Paddy was 94 years of age and created  a family hurling legacy that would be hard to surpass in GAA circles.

He was the last surviving member of the Meath hurling team which gaine All Ireland junior honours in 1948, at a time when this grade was much more competitive than that on offer at the moment.

Paddy was the very heart and soul of his community and club and his hard work over the decades had a huge bearing on the successful unit that Kiltale H.C, now is. He also played football for Moynalvey.

Paddy represented Meath hurlers from 1948 until 1964 and was one of the key players as the combination side St Patricks gained Meath senior hurling championships during 1953 and 54. Later he won a junior medal with his native Kiltale in 1972  and followed this up with an intermediate trophy two years on.

It is no co incidence that when Kiltale reached the Holy Grail and brought home Meath senior chamionships in 1982 and 83 that Paddy was on the line acting as an active and astute selector.

He also fulfilled that same selectors role when Dessie Ferguson managed the Meath senior hurlers.There is no surprise to add that the Kiltale man was the recipient of the Meath Hall of Fame award.

So well known, Mr Hurling, Paddy departs our shores with that wonder GAA legacy amongst a list of wonderful memories.

His son Paddy hurled for Meath for over a decade, was good enough for Leinster Railway Cup activity, managed a number of county teams and has served Meath County Board in a number of capacities. At present he is County Board Vice Chairman. 

The Kelly family legacy continues on the playing fields as both Paddy’s grandsons James & Padraig are accomplished hurlers with Kiltale & Meath and footballers with Moynalvey, while sister Sarah also lines out with Moynalvey Ladies & Kiltale camogie.

Minor Final Report

October 3, 2020

MHC Div 2 FinalKiltale Boardsmill 1.08Clann na nGael 2.14

It wasn’t to be Kiltale’s day as just a couple of hours after the Junior Camogie side lost their final, the minor side which combined with Boardsmill this year couldn’t take advantage of a good first half display and eventually went down to an excellent Clann na nGael side by 9 points.Points from Eoghan Frayne (3, 2f), Conor Quinn (2, 1f) and Sean Lynch (1) matched the opposition’s six at the half time whistle, five of which were scored by Joe Ennis (3f) – the corner forward was to go on to dominate the scoring ending up with a very impressive 1.13 (9f) of his side’s total.

The team in green had a blistering start to the second half and by the seventh minute of the second period were ahead by six points thanks to goal and three points from Ennis. Kiltale Boardsmill’s scores dried up and a pointed free from Quinn was all they had to show in regular time of the second half.

The side in maroon were guilty of conceding too many scorable frees and the CnG no. 13 punished them with four more pointed frees and one from play.By the time we reached the 30th minute it was 1.13 to 0.07 and Kiltale Boardsmill went for broke, positioning Frayne in the full forward position – the Meath minor county football captain did get 1.01 from that position but it was too late as Cillian Heaney found the net late for the Athboy side late on to seal victory and ensure he was the one to lift the PJ Stenson trophy for 2020.

Kiltale Boardsmill:Liam Boyle; Tadgh Cotter, Sean McKenna, Charlie McCormack; Mark Flaherty, Craig Gilsenan, Senan Maher; Darragh McVann, Michael Brady; Conor Quinn (0.03), Eoghan Frayne (1.04), Sean Lynch (0.01); Vinny Walsh, Noah Lacey O’Dea, Liam Deegan. Subs: Tom Ryan, Luke Gallagher (for Deegan HT), Ryan Daly, Cathal Deitrichs.
