Churchill GAA Club News

Congratulations to Eoghan O’Brien and Cillian Fitzgerald, who were part of the Kerry Junior squad that won the All Ireland Title last weekend beating Galway in the final. All the hard work and dedication has paid off and you have done your club proud.

Senior: Following on from our league semi final win and promotion to Division 4, Churchill will play the League Final this Sunday, 29th July. Our opposition in the final will be Valentia, who gave us our toughest game of the league campaign way back in Round 1.

The time and venue will be confirmed later this week, so keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates. After a season where we won promotion after going through the league unbeaten and narrowly missed out on the Junior Premier Championship Final, losing to eventual Champions Beaufort after extra time, it would be nice to take home some silverware. A big crowd would be welcome to cheer on the lads.

Junior: Hot on the heels of our Senior team, the Juniors have also qualified for their League Final following their 2-10 to 0-09 win over St Senans on Friday night. Goals either side of half time from Sean Donnellan and Oisin O’Brien secured the win, but victory was based on some fine defensive work from Ciaran Carmody, Jack Kelliher and Alan McElliggott. Jason Mortimer, Sean Hamilton and Sean Donnellan worked tirelessly around mid field while upfront, Johnny McCarthy, Oisin O’Brien and Ger McCarthy showed for every ball and kept the scoreboard ticking over. Churchill will play Ballymac, who defeated us earlier in the campaign, in the final on Friday 3rd August. Venue to be confirmed.

Academy: Churchill’s Academy continues every Sunday morning at 11am for boys and girls from 4-8 years old and also for U10 boys. Churchill currently boast one of the highest juvenile membership numbers in the County and is expertly run under the watchful eye of Chairman Aidan Harty and Secretary Terence Crean.

We are very fortunate to have an army of volunteers who are on hand week in week out to help develop the players in a fun and inclusive atmosphere. Training continues as usual this Sunday and all kids are to bring boots, water and €2 and it is vital that all children wear their gumshield.

Cul Camps: Churchill will host the Kelloggs GAA Cul Camps from Monday 30th July to Friday 3rd August, from 10am to 2:30pmeach day. Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps provide boys and girls – between the ages of 6 and 13 – with an action-packed and fun-filled week of activity during the summer holidays which revolves around maximising enjoyment and sustaining participant involvement in Gaelic Games.
