Rising Talent - Kilmacud Crokes


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

Guess who's having a Birthday?!!

If you have been around the club, either as a new or seasoned member, you will know that there are a number of great people who have over the years developed Kilmacud Crokes into the fantastic club it is today.

One of these stalwart members is our own Larry Ryan. Maybe you have just gotten tickets from him through the selfless work he puts in for the big matches, or maybe you have known and worked with him on club committees and activities over the years. Whatever the case, we want to let you know that Larry is 80 years young this Saturday 23rd of August and having a celebration in the club. Please drop in and wish him well. All are welcome from 9:45pm onwards.

Crokes among clubs benefitting from SEAI scheme

Sports clubs across the country among projects benefitting from €28 million funding from SEAI

Minister highlights sports clubs’ enthusiasm for energy efficiency

alexwhite31 July 2014:  Mr Alex White TD, Minister for Communications Energy and Natural Resources highlighted the enthusiasm and ambition of sports clubs when it comes to energy efficiency. 70 sports clubs are among the 83 community projects receiving €28m funding under the Better Energy scheme towards insulation, heating and lighting upgrades. GAA, soccer, rugby, golf, tennis, swimming, athletics, squash and horse racing clubs will all benefit from the funding.

The Minister was speaking at Kilmacud Crokes GAA club, one of the beneficiaries of a flagship partnership which began last year between Musgrave / Supervalu and the GAA. Through the partnership, Musgrave / Supervalu is making a significant contribution towards the cost of energy retrofit projects in a number of GAA clubs nationwide. Kilmacud Crokes are already benefitting from the insulation, heating and lighting upgrades installed as part of last year’s scheme and this year the collaboration will result in upgrades to a further 37 Supervalu stores and 34 GAA clubs across the country

The Minister said: “In 2014, the Better Energy programme will provide almost €60m for retrofitting.  Sporting organisations around the country like Kilmacud Crokes are alert to the high cost of energy in their facilities whether it is the floodlights that are in use during the winter or the showers after matches and training; every euro saved through energy efficiency can be invested back into valuable services for their members and patrons. This Government continues to be committed to energy retrofitting in homes, and community and public facilities.”

Kilmacud Crokes were delighted to welcome the Minister to the club and we appreciate his support for our efforts to develop the facilities available to the members. He was instrumental in the provision of this support in previous meetings with the Club Executive. We look forward to welcoming the Minister back to the Club in the future to celebrate what we hope will be a successful playing future supported by our development activity.

Kilmacud Crokes Sports Grant Application Update

As referenced in the recent Club Facilities Development EGM meeting, the club had submitted an application for a sports capital grant relating to an upgrade of Parc De Burca.  We are delighted to inform members that this application has been successful and the club has been granted 200k towards this project.  We will keep members informed of further updates as this evolves and will be coming to you for decisions as and when we get to that stage. We would like to record a note of thanks to everyone involved with the application which has resulted in this successful outcome.

Gym Redevelopment

In a very good news story for the Club the Gym has now re-opened for business following an extensive redevelopment and refurbishment. The work that has been carried out by members themselves has produced a first class facility designed for the needs of the Club membership. The project has been funded by members through their lotto contributions.

A few key points to note :

Access to the Gym is by computer linked fob only. Fobs are available from the Gym management team and a one-off charge of €25 applies (fee covers cost of fob and a contribution to the Gym's maintenance and future development).

All users of the Gym must be members of the Club and have a fob - transfer of fob is absolutely not permitted.

All rules regarding access and use of the gym derive from the need to ensure the Health and Safety of Gym users. The Club will strictly enforce all Gym rules, set down by the Gym management team, which are focussed on Health and Safety as well as protecting the Gym facility itself.

The Gym management team is Gerry McGrath, Michael Durcan, Billy Noctor and John Costelloe.

Enjoy the use of your Club Gym.
