At Last The End Is In Sight
We are delighted with the news that from 26th April all underage training and games can recommence. It is the news that we have all dreamt about and wished for. We cannot wait to welcome all our young players back to Piltown and Seafield. Please keep an eye on our website www.cilles.com for full details of the return to play. We will see you all soon
With the return to play in sight membership is now due. Membership can be paid at www.cilles.com and our preference is that is paid online. Membership rates remain unchanged from 2020 and are excellent value for money. We need to get this in before the “return to play” date to allow us pay affiliation fees, equipment, School’s GAA costs and pitch maintenance charges. Please support
Anyone experiencing any challenges with respect to membership then please do not hesitate to contact your team manager in absolute confidence
There may be no games but the Cilles have claimed the first success of 2021 winning the Leinster Steps Challenge run by Irish Life and Leinster GAA. We successfully completed some 81,000 km/50 ,000 miles to celebrate the Club’s 50th Anniversary this year to top the league table of some 197 clubs from all over the province and the initiative is a credit to all involved. It has been a tough few months for everyone but the challenge has given everyone a great focus and a great seen of community. A huge thanks to all who have assisted in any way, to all our workers but a special word to club PRO, Ciara Lalor and Healthy Club Officer, Lisa McDonald whose brainchild the challenge was. However the biggest word goes to every single participant, irrespective of where you did 1km or 1,500 km (yes, some did”). You have all done us so proud.
Our club lotto funds day to day running costs and must be the one of most won lotto in the country. We need your support in these times with all other fund raising sources drying up. You can play online at www.cilles.com or subscribe for an annual ticket for €100. We need your support !

End of an Era
The Club wishes the ever popular groundsman Billy Mullaly the very best on his recent retirement. Covid 19 robbed us of the opportunity say Good Bye to our dear friend in the way we would have liked but we nonetheless showed our appreciation to Billy for his hard work with some socially distanced cake .
We wish Billy all the very best in his retirement and look forward to welcoming him back to Piltown when things finally return to normal. Don’t be a stranger Billy ! §
