The Kilmeena GAA club annual Paddy Golden memorial blitz took place in St Brendan's Sports Park on Saturday 18 June.
A total of 25 teams comprising of over 300 boys and girls competed in the different sections of the blitz.
Again this year the weather looked kindly on us with all but the finals completed before the Atlantic mist rolled in. This did not take from the atmosphere and great day for the Kilmeena club and parish. It was wonderful to see so many excited children and their coaches cheered on by enthusiastic parents, grandparents and friends compete and display their footballing skills in a fun environment.
Winners on the day were -
Boys Section A: Castlebar Mitchells
Boys Section B: Kilmeena
Boys Section C: Westport
Girls Section: Burrishoole
Thanks to all those who gave so generously of their time in helping out in any way with the many jobs and behind the scene activities that go into making the day such a success. Without the help of club members events such as this would not run as smoothly as they do.
Thanks also to the Golden family for their continued support and representation at the blitz.
On behalf of Kilmeena GAA, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to all those clubs who took part in the blitz and hope to see you all compete again next year.
