Community Games results

A number of Community Games events took place over the last while, writes Papillon Rabbitte. Below is a summary of the results.

Gaelic Football
The U-12 girls (above) had another great win with a three point victory over a very talented Clontarf side (1:5 to 1:2). It was a fantastic game of football against the Dublin champions and our Kilcullen girls battled hard to the very end.

The girls, who already hold last year's Leinster title, will now play the Leinster semifinal in Hawkfield, Newbridge on the 4th July. All support is welcome and kickoff is at 11am

Cross Country
The Kildare cross county trials were held earlier this month. Our own Molly Aspell ran a terrific race and qualified for the U-14's Kildare relay team. Best of luck to the team in the National Finals this August.

Well done to all our talented gymnasts who competed at both local and county level.

Local/Area Results
U-9: 1st Anna Taylor
U-11: Joint 1st Kiera Legg & Saoirse O'Brien, 2nd Abbey MacNamara, 3rd Emily Larrigan
U-13: 1st Caoimhe Vickers

County Final Results
Kilcullen competed in the under 9 and under 11 competitions at county level.

In the U-9 category, Anna Taylor won a medal for 4th place.

Congratulations to the Kilcullen entrants who took part in the county final of the projects competition.
