Who would have thought back in February when it was decided to set up a ladies football club in Kilmeena that we would end up playing in Croke Park representing our club and County.
Well, on Monday July 15th, 2013 was a very proud and historic day for all involved with Kilmeena Ladies GAA Club. 30 girls with their management, mentors and some parents departed from Kilmeena GAA grounds for a trip of a life time to Croke Park to participate in the Gaelic 4 Girls National Blitz day.
Over 1000 girls from all over Ireland took part in this blitz. Our Ladies Club fielded two teams of ten with five subs on each. The girls got a chance to show case their talents and were quick to find the cross bar while others were not so shy in lobbing the ball in the back of the net. All the girls put in a huge performance on the day and represented their club so well. They also got a chance to meet and greet some of the stars associated with ladies football and the county stars presented the girls with a specially designed medal to mark this great occasion.
It was a most memorable day and a great honour for our Club and Huge tribute must be paid to the Managers and all involved with the ladies club for all their hard work and commitment.
Thank you to Club Chairman Willie Keaveney, for all his help and assistance to date and to all the officers in Kilmeena GAA Club.
