KILFLYNN CITY RUNNING GROUP
Couch to 5K is back!!!!
So if you are seeking to get out and about, meet new friends and gain a healthier body and mind in the process why not get involved.
This really is a relaxed and fun environment. Each person’s targets and goals are their own. Encouragement and companionship are what the group provides.
All abilities and ages are welcome so why not come along to the Kilflynn community walkway at Crotta Gaa, Dromakee, Kilflynn, on Sundays 10am – 11am and Wednesdays 7- 8pm. All we ask is a voluntary €2 contribution for each session with all funds raised being used for Crotta Field Development which provides playing facilities for all GAA teams from U5’s – Senior players within our fantastic community.

Cillard 2-5 Causeway 1-4
Cillard are the 2022 Junior County Camogie Champions, after a narrow four-point win over Causeway in Austin Stack Park on Sunday evening. The weather certainly put a damper on proceedings on such a big occasion for the girls , but we were still treated to an entertaining contest. It completed a two in a row for Cillard but this year they have the added bonus of a game in Munster. Well done to the Cillard players and their mentors, especially the Crotta girls Sarah Gleeson, Roisin Quinn and Niamh Quinn
