Hurling Club History

The history of Kiltale Hurling Club dates back to the early 1920’s. The club disbanded in 1934 but was reformed in 1946. Kiltale won their first Junior Hurling Championship in 1954. The club reached the Senior Hurling Championship final twice in the late 50’s without success.

There was no club in the 1960’s but in the 1970’s, the late Tommy Kane got it back on it’s feet and the club came back to win the Junior Hurling Championship in 1971, Intermediate Hurling Championship in 1972 a Under 14’s Championship in 1975 and the Intermediate in 1978. In the 1970’s Kiltale proved to be one of the most successful teams in Meath Hurling. This is a credit to all that were behind the club in the early years to keep hurling alive in the parish.

The 1980’s were the most successful decade in the clubs history, winning the Senior Hurling Championship in 1982 and 1983 and the O’Growney Cup in 1985 and 1987. In 1992 they won the Junior Hurling Championship and in 1999 they had success with the minors.
