Many thanks to David Murphy who coordinated all the coaches and Kildare ambassador Jimmy Hyland & Paul Divilly who paid special visits to each of the camps offering advice and answering questions. The future is certainly looking good.
  • Kildare GAA in conjunction with the Mick Sammon Commemoration Committee have developed a Referee Award Scheme for referees at County and Club levels in the name of Michael Sammon, who refereed the tragic game that was ended by the Bloody Sunday shootings, 21 November 1920, when 14 people lost their lives and hundreds more were injured. As part of the programme all Clubs are encouraged to recruit new referees so that we can keep our fixtures programme going.
  • The GAA & the RNLI are asking everyone to #RespectTheWater. If you are heading to the coast, riverbank or lake this weekend please be mindful of the Water Safety Tips. If you see anyone in trouble to dial 112 or 999 and ask for the Coast Guard.
