The annual O’Loughlin Gaels GAA Race Night will take place this year on Friday July 13th at Kilkenny Dog Track. Always a special occasion but a vital one to keep the club in working order. It’s a costly business providing all that enjoyment for our members but well worth it’s while. Your support is always greatly appreciated. Over the coming weeks sellers and players will be on the roads of St. John’s Parish in search of your support. Support your local club and community

Another big day was put in by Paddy Deegan in a kilkenny jersey.. Paddy played an heroic role in Sunday’s drawn Leinster Final watched on proudly by an army of young 'Gaels who seemed to take over all of the lower tier of the Davin Stand. We look forward now to Sunday and encourage all again to support the Kilkenny Team in the Replay at Semple Stadium.
Hard luck to Conor, Jamie and David whose Kilkenny Minor team came out the wrong side of a pulsating Minor Leinster Hurling Final at Portlaoise. The boys will be back with the young cats again shortly as they proceed in the all-Ireland series..and they’ll have a lot to contribute to that campaign. Well done boys.

A crowded goal line stifled numerous assaults at the Tullaroan goal in the final 15 mins of this game preventing the Gaels from coming away with a win in round 3 of this league. A great effort and great progress been made with this group. Well done to all involved.
Please support our Junior Team who are scheduled to play against Piltown on Thursday evening at Thomastown in the All County Junior League Final. It promises to be a cracker.
