Plough on: A great time was had by all at the Milltown/Castlemaine GAA Club Christmas Fundraising Night.

What a brilliant night was had at our Fundraising Race Night in The Plough Bar on Saturday night. A fantastic amount of money was raised for our ever growing GAA club.

A special thanks to our sponsors for their very generous support. Congratulations to Melissa O’Connor, Abbeylands, who won the best dressed lady and to Nigel Wrenn, Kilderry who won best dressed gent. Enjoy your winnings!

Mile buíochas to Denis and Bernie who were wonderful hosts on the night. We were treated to lots of delicious hot and cold finger food. Well done to the entire committee for all their hard work in ensuring the success of this fundraiser.

U-16s in Hard Luck Against Rangers

Hard luck to our U-16 boys who were defeated in the Mid Kerry Final on Sunday last by Laune Rangers.

These boys have reached a few finals this year and have been very unlucky to miss out on the silver ware. There are great things to come for you at minor and senior level!

Special thanks to David, Brian, John and Paud for all their work with these boys throughout the year.
