St Colmcille’s G.A.A. – August

With things back to somewhat of normality these are busy times at the Cilles and what a busy but exciting month August is going to be !

Kellogg’s Cul Camp

This year we are only hosting one camp and unfortunately it booked out very quickly.  Those lucky enough to attend had a great time. A big well done to all involved. Here’s hoping that things improve and next year we will return to the multiple camp model.  Thanks to all who took part and helped out including all our volunteers who assisted with car parking and documentation

Championship Season

A short sharp championship season ahead and hopefully an exciting one for all our teams. We have 5 days in a row of championship fare for 7 teams commencing on Saturday 1st of August with the Senior Men v Gaeil Colmcille from Kells. Our Premier 3 team play Dunderry away on Sunday 2nd August and the Premier 5 team at home c Simonstown on Bank Holiday Monday. The Intermediate Ladies are at home to Rataoth on Tuesday 4th August while the Junior ladies play Seneschaltown on Wednesday 5th August with our minor boys playing Ratoath and the Nobber St Michaels combination that evening as well

Good luck to all our teams! You can follow us on social media
