Dermot McNulty Blitz

Our U11 hurlers travelled to Na Fianna GAA Club in Dublin on Bank Holiday Monday last to take part in the Dermot McNulty Memorial Blitz. Thank you to Na Fianna GAA for having us. They took part along with six other clubs: Na Fianna, O’Loughlin Gaels, Borris-Ileigh, St Finian’s, Castleknock and Ballyboden St Enda’s. After a great day’s hurling it was K/K who came out on top. Well done to all involved.

Sympathy

Kilcormac/Killoughey GAA Club were saddened to learn on Friday last of the passing of our Club President Charlie Daly, Ridgemount Park, Kilcormac. Charlie has been involved in GAA in the parish and the county for many years whether it be playing, involved in the management of teams or in latter years supporting. Charlie was a selector with the Offaly Senior Hurling team from 1976 until 1985 during which time they won their first and second All-Ireland Hurling titles in 1981 and 1985. He was also a selector with both Na Piarsaigh Minor Hurling double winning teams of 1970-1971 and 1983-1984. Charlie was an ever-present on the bench inside the gate of the Kilcormac GAA pitch for many years casting his eye over all training sessions and matches until ill health in recent years. We would like to express our sincere sympathy to Charlie’s brother Paddy, extended family and friends. Kilcormac/Killoughey GAA Club would also like to express our sincere sympathy to the Leonard Family on the passing of Kathleen Leoanrd, Pallas Hill, Blueball and to the Tynan Family on the death of Betty Tynan, Kinnitty and formerly Coolfin, Kilcormac.
