  • A.R.O.K. (Alternative Rose of Kiltubrid)
    Drumcong experienced the Tralee feeling last Saturday night as Kiltubrid’s would be roses paraded their wares and talents before a packed Cardiff’s Lounge. Entertainment of this nature never before hit this community, and what a night we had as everyone there thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the show. A lot of work and preparation went into the event culminating in another successful night for Kiltubrid GAA. The roses stole the show with their attires and stage displays that had the audience on their feet, acknowledging the fun and entertainment throughout. Thanks to the Cardiff family for the use of their premises and their hospitality, to the organising group and the roses for their efforts, to the stage duo and the judges, to the sound crew from Dublin, and finally all of you who supported and attended. This fundraiser will help to bring the club’s costs for 2008 to a manageable position. Congrats to the Rantogue Rose who emerged as a very popular winner of the contest.

  • Under 21’s
    Our parish Under 21 Team failed to overcome the hunger and might of Carrigallen last Saturday in the Semi Final of the B Championship played in Gortletteragh. Short some players and being down to fourteen players midway in the first half didn’t help their cause, as the Carrigallen side were the hungrier side on the day. Hard luck lads, your day will come. Good wishes to Carrigallen in the final.

01 December 2008

  • Under 21’s
    Good result for our most senior underage squad last Sunday as they had a four point win over Annaduff. The game itself was tight enough all through even though our lads missed some very scoreable chances. Kiltubrid’s dominance for long periods of the game should have given them a more comfortable margin at the final whistle. They now must wait on the result from the other quarter final game between Carrigallen and Dromahair to see who their opponents are in the semifinal. All players are asked to please put in an effort to attend training for the remainder of this competition.

  • Junior B Champions
    A great weekend for our club Junior Men as they had great victory over Glencar Manor in the Junior B Final. This result was no more than this bunch of players deserve as they have trained hard over a long drawn out season. No need to mention any players individually as the panel as a whole earned this title with great performances in the games leading up to the final, and what a game this turned out to be as both teams served up an excellent game of football last Sunday in Pairc Sean. The credit for this result goes to the team management of Adrian McKeown and Prionsias Reynolds who have put in a lot of time and effort throughout the season to achieve this title. We thank all associated especially the Cardiff family who put up a full meal for the entire panel and team mentors after the game on Sunday. To all supporters we say thanks once again for your continued support. At this stage we wish to acknowledge the graciousness of the Manorhamilton team, officials and supporters who wished all our players and mentors well after the game in a very sporting manner.

  • Senior League
    When backs are to the wall, it brings the best out of any team as proved last Sunday in Kiltubrid as our Seniors reversed this year’s championship semi-final result defeating Bornacoola by 1-13 to 0-11. A good performance all round as the lads dug deep in this very entertaining game that saw Kiltubrid take the lead early on with a well worked goal finished off with precision by Kealan McKeon. Following this score Kiltubrid didn’t fall behind for the remainder of the game despite some very close shaves as the visitors who had an equal hunger tried hard to emulate their championship form. This result gets us a little bit further away from the cliff’s edge, and with Mohill our last game of the league its another result that will be very important as a number of teams are also in the danger zone. Training for Juniors, Seniors and Under 21’s continues this Wednesday as usual. More players should make an effort to attend from all grades. Check fixtures in sports pages to see date and time for next Senior league game.

Extra time was needed to separate the sides as visiting Sligo never let this game get out of their reach during normal time. It was in extra time that Leitrim’s Juniors took control when Karl Scollan broke loose from midfield to give a pin point pass for a Leitrim goal, their most important score of the evening. Kiltubrid were also represented by Aidan Bohan and Emmett Lee who both played during the course of the game. Leitrim now face neighbours Roscommon in the Connaught final.

  • Shannonside Result
    Leitrim travelled to Limerick last Sunday to save their status in Division 3 but had to settle for Division 4 status for 2009 as things didn’t go that well as they missed out by the narrowest of margins.

    Our third team were the first of our men’s teams in action for 2008. Visiting St Osnats were the more focused team on the day and despite some good individual performances by the Kiltubrid lads it wasn’t enough to stop the visitors from collecting their first brace of league points.
