Kerins O’Rahilly’s GAA Club News

Posted by


In Kerins O’ Rahillys we introduce our girls and boys to the world of Gaelic football in a fun environment. The action takes place every Sunday morning in Healy Park, Ballyrickard.
We divide the children into small groups and the emphasis is always on fun and involvement and also skills . We are blessed with terrific coaches in our club, most of them parents and many who have themselves played club or club and county football.
We welcome new players to each age group always so if interested please contact Adrian (085) 1500199.


Great fun and a beautiful morning at our Academy last Sunday!  Well done to each girl and boy for the huge effort each and everyone of you put in as always. It’s great to see such support from parents and families, it means so much to the children to have you watch them train and play games. And we mustn’t forget our dedicated coaches for all their time and commitment every week- you do a great job!

Kerins O’ Rahilly’s U8 and U10 Girls who were hosted by Na Gaeil last Sunday morning.

Well done to everyone last Sunday who played Na Gaeil in the sunshine in Killeen.  Many thanks to Na Gaeil for hosting us. Great determination and skill on display from the girls from both clubs. Thanks also to all of the parents for their support with the girls .

We had a busy weekend which started on Friday evening when we hosted Camp / Annascaul in Páirc Uí Éalaithe. Both teams were just awesome on the night!

Thank you to Na Gaeil who also hosted our U10 Girls last Sunday. Great skills and determination also from both clubs.
