County League Round Two:  Kilcummin travelled to Glenflesk on Sunday last and came away with a point after a competitive and entertaining encounter. Trailing by five points after 20 minutes and with Glenflesk playing very well it looked a daunting task. However a goal by Damien O’Leary after an incisive run by William Maher brought us back into contention.


With less urgency we exerted more control and lead by two points at half time. The second-half Glenflesk levelled quickly and from there to the final whistle it was tit for tat with Glenflesk levelling with a free-kick at the death. Best for Kilcummin were Brendan Kealy, Philip Casey, Kevin Gorman, Sean O’Leary and Padraig Nagle on a day when all 20 players contributed hugely.


Team: Brendan Kealy, Sean Brosnan (inj), Dan Moynihan, Sean O’Leary, William Maher, Philip Casey, Donal Maher, Kevin Gorman, Kieran Murphy, John McCarthy, Gary O’Leary, Padraig Nagle, Mikey O’Shea, Damien O’Leary, Noel Duggan Subs used: Jamie O’Donoghue, Shane McSweeney, Matt Keane, Ian Devane and Oscar O’Connor.


Next outing is next Saturday at 5.30 in Beaufort against Glenbeigh Glencar in the Castleisland Mart Intermediate Championship


OSKARS: in INEC this Thursday. Doors open at 7pm. Casual Dress, Limited number of tickets still available in Post Office

Calling all club members and their family and friends.

Next Thursday night 29th sees the culmination of months of hard work by a committee from Kilcummin and Glenflesk parishes in aid of both GAA clubs. They will present for the first time in Munster an OSKARS night, which will have local people only, acting in 7 eight minute long films. They are Michael Collins, The Field, The Snapper, Forest Gump, A Few Good Women, Sister Act and Fr. Ted.

This is the only chance we will get to see these locals perform and it is a once off opportunity to raise considerable funds for the club. The doors will be open at 7pm and the shows commence at 8pm. Dress is SMART CASUAL and it presents an opportunity to get those “glad rags”on as there will also be a prize for the best dressed male and female.

Up to 80 people have been rehearsing for the last two months and have produced very professional and entertaining scenes from the movies, with some exceptional performances, so a great night is guaranteed. You will also get an opportunity to vote for the best movie and to walk the RED CARPET.

Get groups together or come alone and be part of a special night. Don’t be sorry afterwards! Tickets are €25 and are available from Kilcummin Post Office or INEC box office.

Senior Football

Dr Crokes 0-12 Kilcummin 0-11

Our Senior team completed their season on Saturday last when they bowed out of the O’Donoghue Cup to Dr Crokes in Lewis Road by a single point. This was a very creditable performance and we even lead by six points early in the second-half.


However Dr Crokes introduced some influential substitutes and this combined with a number of spurned opportunities by ourselves saw the home team go forward to face Legion in the Semi-Final.


What has been at times a difficult season for players and management with injuries and absences their recent performances have given the supporters much hope for the year ahead and with dedication and a little bit of luck who knows where it might take us. Well done to players, management and supporters for your commitment to your club.


Team: Brendan Kealy (0-2) Mikey O Shea, Donal Maher, Damien O’Leary, Sean O’Leary, Chris O Leary, Dan Moynihan, Kevin Gorman, Shane McSweeney (0-1) Kevin McCarthy ( 0-3, 2F), Noel Duggan (0-2), Matt Keane, Daniel O’Leary (0-1), Philip Casey (0-2) Kelvin Teahan. Subs used Jamie O’Donoghue and Ian Devane.

Minor Football Kilcummin 3-11 Spa 0-18


Our Minors captured the East Kerry C Championship on Saturday last with a win over Spa in Spa.


Two goals from Conor McCarthy helped us to a six points lead at half-time before he retired injured before the break. We opened up an eight point lead after James Nagle scored our third halfway through the second-half but then had to endure a tremendous fight back from Spa. Indeed only for a resolute defence well marshalled by Sean O’Leary and a number of fine saves from Keith O’Leary we could have been overtaken.


As it was Spa came to within one point of us in injury time but Paul O Shea who was very influential scored a magnificent long range point to seal the victory. This was a great team effort from players and substitutes under the direction of Seanie, Alan and Mike and when Captain Sean O’Leary lifted the trophy it was a fitting reward for their efforts throughout the year.


Team: Keith O’Leary, James Nagle, Cathal Healy, Chris Moynihan, Sean O’Leary, Sean Moynihan, Cormac O’Connor, Niall Daly, Eoin Daly, Tomas O’Connor, Lorcan O’Connor, Paul O’Shea, Conor McCarthy.

Subs Used: Philip O’Leary, Darragh Cronin, Danny Cronin, Mike Brosnan Panel: Conor O’Leary, John C O’Shea, Dan Keane, Darragh Lehane, Nathan McCarthy, Darragh Brosnan, Conn Fleming, Dave Gleeson and Ivor Moynihan

Senior Football Club Championship Playoff

Kilcummin 1-10 Kerins O’Rahillys 2-12


We left Austin Stack Park on Sunday last with a mixture of emotions, disappointed at losing our senior status, mystified and frustrated at some decisions. However the overriding feeling was one of great pride. Our players and mentors gave it everything and despite a number of injuries we left with our heads held high after a very competitive and entertaining game. It brings to an end a 20 year journey as a senior club that saw us reach a Senior County Championship final in 2002, a Semi-Final and Replay in 2007 along with a Munster Senior Club Semi-Final the same year and a Minor County Championship title in 2010.


Sunday’s game saw us play some of our best football of the year and at half-time both sides had scored 1-4 apiece. Kevin McCarthy finished sublimely to the net after an outstanding catch and pass from Kevin Gorman who had a fine game throughout. Brendan Kealy had opened the scoring with a long range free, Matt Keane and Noel Duggan accounting for the other scores. A quick start to the second-half saw Matt Keane and Brendan Kealy add further points but O’Rahillys matched us score for score. Despite some powerful defending and further scores courtesy of Noel Duggan and Kevin McCarthy we found ourselves trailing by two points with two minutes left.


However following a free awarded to O’Rahillys that left most spectators scratching their heads to put it mildly, the ball ended up in the net to put a five point margin between the teams and a flattering scoreline for the winners. Our next game is against Dr Crokes in the O’Donoghue Cup scheduled for Saturday week November 4th in Lewis Road.


Team: Brendan Kealy (0-2, 1 ‘45’, 1f), Damien O’Leary, Donal Maher, Daniel Moynihan, Sean O’Leary, Chris O’Leary, Mikey O’Shea, Kelvin Teahan, Kevin Gorman, Matt Keane (0-3), Kevin McCarthy (1-3), Noel Duggan (0-2), Oscar O’Connor, Shane McSweeney, Philip Casey. Subs used Ian Devane and Daniel O’Leary


Development Project & Fundraiser Launch: We are delighted to announce Mr. Brendan Griffin, Minister of State for the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport will officially launch Kilcummin GAA’s Development Project and Development Fundraiser on Friday October 27th at 9pm in Kilcummin GAA clubhouse. This is an open invitation to everyone in the community members and non-members alike. It presents the ideal opportunity to get an update on progress so far and to inspect the future plans for the clubs facilities which will enhance the lives of the entire community.
