Fixtures this week

  • Sunday 7th October – Meath SHC Final – Kiltale v Trim – venue Páirc Tailteann, throw-in time 3:30pm

This is it… the big one!

After a stuttering start, our seniors are on the cusp of a phenomenal FIVE-IN-A-ROW of Meath senior titles, a feat which has not been achieved in the county for over seventy years. But we cannot take the outcome for granted – we will need all the support we can muster, as Trim have been waiting 17 years to end their own famine. Bring the colour, bring the noise, and be the 16th man!

Club flags will be available to purchase in the Kings Gala in the coming days, and all Kiltale Hurling Club Gear is available to purchase from O’Neills Shop online:
