Press Release: Kildare Senior Football Championship Squad

April 8th, 2018 | News, Teams

Kildare Senior Football Manager, Cian O’ Neill, and his Management Team of Ronan Sweeney and Enda Murphy, have released the Senior Football Championship Squad for the upcoming Leinster Championship.

With the recent additions of Moorefield players, Mark Dempsey, James Murray and Éanna O’ Connor, the Squad also sees Ben McCormack and Eoin Powderly leave the set-up.

McCormack has recently commenced his final block release for his electrician’s apprenticeship in Sligo and his 9-6pm college schedule prevents him from travelling back for training during the week. With the county players released back to their clubs for the 6 consecutive weekends from March 30th to May 6th, this also prevents him from training with the squad at the weekend.

Eoin Powderly has also stepped away from the Senior Squad citing work commitments as the reason. Having recently qualified as a solicitor, Powderly has struggled to combine the challenging workload of his new job with his training commitments.

The Squad in full is:

  1. Mark Donnellan, Maynooth
