Our club defibrillator has now been relocated to outside the doors of the clubrooms and is available to the community.
As we are all aware, access to a defibrillator can save some one’s life.
Our club is compiling a list of qualified individuals who are competent in using a defibrillator. You never know that perhaps your own life or the life of your son/daughter/ mother / father/ brother/sister/granny or grandad may be saved some day by someone on this list.
Please contact Deirdre on 086/1703332, if you wish to place your name on the list or private message me on FB

Milltown/Castlemaine GAA – Lá Na gClub

As part of Lá na gClub 2016 celebrations, the club is organising a get together to celebrate the achievements of the 1988 to 1996 teams. In that eight year period they had phenomenal success, winning Division 3 & 2 of the county league, thus gaining promotion to Division 1 for the first time ever; they also won the County Junior Championship and contested four County Intermediate finals in six years-winning two and narrowly losing the other two.
That successful period in the club’s history certainly laid the foundations for where the club is today. To recognise that success the club has organised a Reunion Buffet with live music and late bar
on Saturday 7th May at the Faha Court Hotel at 8pm.
If you have any memorabilia such as: photographs, match reports, programmes from any year, we would be very grateful if you forwarded them to us. We hope to put a slideshow together for this momentous occasion. Please contact Mike Carroll on 087 22 56 548 or All memorabilia will be returned to you on the night.
