Great result in Community Games

Kilcullen had great success winning seven medals at the Kildare Community Games County Art competition, held in the Patrician Primary School, Newbridge, on Sunday 22 March, writes Papillon Rabitte.

The event was well attended with up to 300 talented children, from 14 different community games areas, competing to represent Kildare in the National Finals. The Kilcullen contingent consisted of 25 competitors across the different age groups (U8-U16).

The competition can be quite competitive at this level and all the participants have to be commended on getting to the County finals.

At the end of the day, Kilcullen brought home two gold, three silver and two fourth place medals.

Our two gold medallists, Ella Cullen (U10) and Leon Cullen (U14) now go forward to represent Kildare at the National Finals in August.

The medal winners are U8 Girls: 2nd Aoife Moran and 4th Leah Keogh; U8 Boys: 4th Sean Dunne; U10 Girls: 1st Ella Cullen; U10 Boys: 2nd Tom Aspell; U14 Boys: 1st Leon Cullen; U16 Girls: 2nd Stephanie Byrne.

Congratulations to all the participants and winners.
