Kildimo/Pallaskenry GAA Club Notes
KYLE HAYES- YOUNG HURLER OF THE YEAR: Congratulations to Kyle Hayes on being declared Young Hurler of the Year at the All-Stars, capping off what has been a memorable year for the youngster from the old road! I think that Kyle and all his teammates would say that winning Liam McCarthy and getting the Celtic Cross is all that matters to them, but it’s still nice to have individual achievements recognised also and there is no doubt that Kyle really made his mark on this Championship season! Well done to Kyle, a proud moment for him, his family and for the club too.
MUNSTER CLUB FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP: Our Munster adventure is set to start on Saturday, November 10 and after the weekend, we now know our opponents: Dromtarriffe of Cork. Dromtarriffe would have been considered outsiders at the start of the year, and produced upsets against more-fancied teams in the semi-final and final. A substitute, Darren O’Connor, came on and hit two second-half goals in the county final as they came from 5 points down at half-time and kicked the winning point heading into injury time.
Dromtarriffe are a small club in North Cork, and one of the oldest clubs in the country, winning a Cork Senior Football Championship in 1893. They are sure to be very tough opponents, but it’s a test that we are really looking forward to! It is set to be an away game, most likely in Mallow, so keep your diaries free!
U-21 FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP: We received a walkover from Claughaun in the U-21 Football Championship, which means that we have now booked our place in the City Final where we will play St. Patrick’s. Date, time and venue of the match is to be confirmed; keep an eye on the Team App and social media for details.
ELECTRO QUIZ: On Saturday November 10, the club will host an Electro Quiz fundraiser in the Seven Sisters, Kildimo. After a hugely successful evening last year, and after a great year to date on the field, we hope to see people come out and support the event. Save the date in your diary!

CLUB LIMERICK DRAW: Sadly, we had no winners in the October draw after some success in the first few draws of the year. However, there are still two draws to go for 2018, with a subscription costing €10 per month. The CLUB Limerick Draw is a vital factor in the success of our County teams, it raises much needed funds for all our clubs to the tune of €400,000.
Kildimo/Pallaskenry GAA are very fortunate to have a great number of young and senior players represent our club on the intercounty scene. The CLUB Limerick Draw will also help the development of the Gaelic Grounds and Mick Neville Park, to make it a centre of excellence with four full-size pitches including synthetic pitch, flood lighting & ball alley. Each month there will be 30 Guaranteed Cash Prizes with a top prize of €12,000 & a star car prize in December worth €25,000. You can play online or contact any club member below, or call/e-mail Siobhan in the Limerick GAA Office 061-335516 / email@example.com.
