KHC is a vibrant club but only because it has the help of its members. Our committee needs to grow and requires some new faces. The AGM is the meeting at which these events happen. So, please: we ask you, the people of the parish, to consider coming on board.
    • If you wish to nominate any person for any position please contact before the 31st January.

Club fundraising for 2019

  • National GAA Club Draw: Tickets for the 2019 National Club Draw are now on sale. There are 20 great prizes to be won. Tickets cost €10 and can be purchased from the Kiltale Hurling Club committee. All money raised by the club STAYS with the club, so please be generous!
  • Walkathon – Lets Walk & Talk: Kiltale Hurling Club will again this year be holding the ‘Walk & Talk’ Walkathon over the May Bank Holiday weekend. As in 2018, it will begin on Saturday 4th May at 7pm and end on Sunday 5th May at 7pm, with a function for all in the Clubhouse. 
    • The Walk & Talk was a success in 2018 for all the right reasons, bringing the young and old of our community together. Members past and present met up, had a chat and a social outing, two charities were major beneficiaries, while great funds were put into the running of the club and to complete the redevelopment. We ask you to note the dates, and be part of an event which will hopefully be equally as good in 2019!

The clubhouse is a very important facility in our parish and always needs support. Like other clubs we don’t want to know what it is to be without it. Drop in for a drink or an ESSENCE Coffee or think about using the facility for a party or meeting.

We appreciate your support and value the custom you all give.
