Dublin U13 Camogie Division 1 Camogie Shield champions

The U13 Kilmacud Crokes u13 Camogie team defeated St Finians (Swords) by 5-8 to 3-5 to win the  Dublin U13 Camogie Division 1 Camogie Shield on Sunday October 18th at St Finians.  This concluded a highly successful season for the girls who earlier in the year won the U13 Division 1 league with victory in all their 9 matches.

The Shield final was a highly competitive game with St Finians racing into a 1-1 lead within the first 5 minutes.  However, the Crokes girls fought back well and had a 1 point lead by half time.  Kilmacud Crokes hit a “purple” patch in the 3rd quarter to race into an 11 point lead.  St Finians to their great credit never gave up and would have closed the gap more if it were not for some stalwart defending by Crokes.  Overall the games was characterised by super skill levels, high work rate, teamwork and tenacity, on both sides, with Crokes just holding the edge in all-round ability.

This Kilmacud Crokes team represent a hugely promising future for Camogie in the club.  Combined with the U14 Kilmacud Crokes camogie team, who secured victory in their Division 1 Shield final the previous day against Raheny,

They are well capable of developing into team who will secure top honours for Kilmacud Crokes at more senior levels.  Currently, the team have 9 representatives on the Under 13 Dublin Camogie Development Squad

Book Launch Kilmacud Crokes this Thursday

Title:   Victory Loves Preparation

Author:   Emmet Ryan

Launch:   Kilmacud Crokes, Thursday Nov 28th at 8 pm

"There's a massive shift in Irish sport - and a welcome one - to forensic analysis of why and how things happened as opposed to a simple retelling of what happened. Emmet Ryan is undoubtedly part of that movement," - Ger Gilroy, Off the Ball.

How did Jim Gavin solve James Horan? Can a 600 year old battle really be relevant to the past summer's championship? What drove Ballymun Kickhams and St Brigid's of Kiltoom to new heights? Emmet Ryan's sequel to Tactics not Passion answers these questions with a look back at how strategy shaped a year in Gaelic Football. From junior finals to the chase for the Sam Maguire, Victory Loves Preparation examines the evolution of tactics in the modern game.

If anyone can't make the launch but wants the book they can either order it here http://www.originalwriting.ie/products/victory-loves-preparation  or they can email Emmet at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or call him  on 087 6206767.

 
New Lotto is Up and Running!

The Kilmacud Crokes Lotto is back up and running.

We had no winner this week – so the Jackpot rolls forward – increased by €200 to €5,200 for next week’s draw, Thursday 28th November.

This week’s spot prize winners were:

  • Fergal Flood  voucher for  John O' Reilly butchers
  • Colette Dowling voucher from Atlas Auto.
  • Mark Lohan voucher Dominic Smith Electrical.
  • Gerry Greene voucher Fitzcycles

The Lotto committee will contact the winners with details.  

We have had a great response to the re-launch of the Lotto.  More than three hundred members and friends of members have subscribed for an annual ticket.  As a result of the demand we have extended the period for purchase of the special once off annual ticket (€100 – two entries in the next 50 draws) until Wednesday 27th November.

As of tomorrow each of the sections will be selling weekly tickets (€2 for 1 of €5 for 3).  Remember Lotto sales will be a key method of fundraising for sections – with a commitment that 50% of the value of such tickets sold will be returned to the individual section.  You can also access the Lotto from each of the Club sites and purchase tickets online.

We would like to thank all our sponsors and all Club members who have given generously of their time to get the Lotto back up and running.

The Kilmacud Crokes Lotto will be a key fundraising activity for all the Club over the next number of years.  Please take every opportunity to support and promote the Lotto.

Thank you to everyone who has already participated.  We encourage everyone else to buy tickets and support your Club.  And best of luck to everyone in next week’s draw. The first draw of the new Kilmacud Crokes Lotto was held last night in the Club. There was no winner of the overall jackpot. The winning numbers were 34, 3, 33 and 17.

 
New Club Lotto launch and Celebrating our Heroes

Last Friday night, 1st Nov, was a great club night to remember from 2013.  We celebrated our club members who did us proud wearing the Dublin Jersey during the year and launched our new Club Lotto.  We had lots of silver ware on show as well as our celebrated players. Mick Garry did an excellent job as MC for the event.  Martin Byrne and his Lotto team did a super job in launching our new club lotto generating 8,500 euro in early sales sign-up. Off to a flying start but lots more to do to make this Lotto a success we can all benefit from.  Music, finger food and good company late into the night made for an evening to remember.  Check out the photo’s  http://www.kilmacudcrokes-hurling.com/news-reports/new-club-lotto-launched-0.
