All roads lead to Pairc Tailteann!

Congratulations to the Junior Hurling team and mentors on winning the Meath Junior Hurling Championship final against Boardsmill.

Congratulations also to the Intermediate Camogie team and mentors on defeating Ratoath to win the Meath Intermediate Camogie Championship.

Finally, the big one: after five years away, Kiltale are back in the senior county final. The big game against Killyon is on October 21st in Pairc Tailteann.

Big congratulations to all involved with all three sides. So – get behind your team! Tops, flags and car-flags can be purchased in the clubhouse.


Sending teams to county finals costs money – so we’re holding a fundraiser in the next few weeks.

In two weeks, October 19, we’ll hold a Trojan Horse Race Night. Anyone interested can purchase a spot as a jockey, horse or trainer from any committee member or from the clubhouse.

All funds from both events will go towards assisting the club with the teams for the senior and county junior finals – so any and all assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thanks also to those who attended the Table Quiz last Friday night.

Bingo resumes this Tuesday 2nd October at 8:30pm in the clubhouse.

Lord Mayor Competition

Kiltale Hurling Club launched its Lord Mayor Competition on Friday night. The competitors are Noel Regan, Mary McGann and Ronan Ryan. The three entrants will be planning different events to fundraise in the coming months. Notification of different events will be posted here on the website, on our Facebook and in the clubhouse. The Lord Mayor will be crowned during Christmas.  Good luck to the three competitors, for whom all support will be welcome.


Stephen O’Rourke & GAA Social Initiative are back with another one of Stephen’s plays: ‘For Club and County‘:

Arthur Polanski is the spit of Ritchie Brown, Tanaree’s dual football and hurling star. And just because Arthur Polanski played in goals for Poland and now Ritchie Brown is injured and Tanaree’s are in a final, all Tanaree need to do is turn Arthur into Richie.

Come and see the true story of how this final will unfold on Friday December 7 in Summerhill Community Centre at 8:30pm. Admission on the door is €10.
