MKL Gaels

Well done to the players and coaching team of the MKL Senior Ladies Team who created history in the past few weeks making their way to the Junior A Munster Championship Final. A fantastic feat which the whole club can be proud of.

It was not to be on the day as Mullinahone Ladies (Tipperary) ran out winners on a windy day in Mallow but that is not to take from the fantastic effort and wonderful journey the team went on to make it to the final.

Just a couple of weeks ago we at Milltown/Castlemaine GAA had the pleasure of hosting the MKL Senior Teams, Munster Semi Final on a fantastic occasion for MKL Gaels and for all of us at Paddy Burke Memorial Park.

We hope the players and coaches from MKL Gaels enjoy a well deserved rest over the Christmas and are ready to go again in 2022.

Mid Kerry Championship Final

Everyone at Milltown/Castlemaine GAA Club was very proud to host the Mid Kerry Final this past weekend as Beaufort took on Laune Rangers in the decider.

A big congratulations to Beaufort in claiming the Michael O’Connor Memorial Cup and commiserations to Laune Rangers who played their part in a good game despite the strong winds.

In the post match speeches that took place in the brand new 276 seater stand it was wonderful to hear the kind comments from the Mid Kerry Board and Beaufort Captains about the fantastic facilities at Paddy Burke Memorial Park. We thank them for their kind words and thank all our club members for continuing to support our development project.

A huge thank you to the incredible group of volunteers who helped out in so many ways for todays final. With the work starting early in the week to get ready for the big occasion and the outstanding stewardship of today’s event, we thank you all sincerely for your hard work.
