DRIVE IN BINGO: SUNDAY OCTOBER 4TH AT 2 P.m. It’s getting nearer!

Our club, in conjunction with Nagle Rice Community Pitch, is hosting a Drive in Bingo on Sunday October 4th in the grounds of The Mart Car Park. Our bingo players have been particularly hard hit with the Covid restrictions placed on bingo.  Much work has been undertaken to organise this and we are delighted to be able to see all our efforts come to fruition. We will have fantastic prize money to give away.
We sincerely appreciate the management and committee of Mid Kerry Mart, Milltown for facilitating this. We are sure it will bring a smile to many in our community particularly the older people who have been isolated very much. Please spread the word!!

We have our 1st match arranged for our U6’s v Keel, on Sunday September 13th at 9.45. ONLY Children born in 2014 and 2015 will be permitted to play in the match. The 2016 boys and girls are too young yet and we don’t want to scare them away! We promise your turn will come!

On Tuesday, September 8th our 8’s have a game against LAUNE RANGERS at their main pitch.


The Under 10’s are away against Laune Rangers also on Tuesday evening@ 6.15PM (Away) On Sunday 13th, they have another game away against Kerins O Rahillys at 11.30 am. So lots happening for them. Please comply with all Covid regulations regarding attendance.

Well done to all on Sunday evening last in Ballyduff. The Green team played fantastic football and were a joy to watch- giving it 100% Even though the results are not going their way, your trainers and mentors are very proud of you all with the improvement that ye are making from game to game. The boys and girls may not realise it at the moment but things will all come together next year. It takes time and your trainers want you to know that ye have it in ye to go on and be very successful. So don’t give up!

Maith thú to the White team on a great performance and a superb win (5-06 to 0-08).Some brilliant teamwork displayed on the night. A special thanks to the 4 girls in particular who came along and performed excellently.  Milltown Castlemaine Abú!


Our under Green 14’s put up a huge battle out in Rathmore on Wednesday night last and despite putting some fantastic scores-(2/14) on the board lost out at the final whistle. Hard luck but most importantly very well played.

The White team were up against Legion on Wednesday last and equally served up some fantastic scores (4/07) to end up victorious after a very exciting finish- which had the supporters on the edge of their seats.  Well done to you all!  (Photo of  White team sent ahead)
