LIP SYNC BATTLES – O’LOUGHLIN GAELS
We've had a huge response to LipSync Battles O'Loughlin Gaels with members from all around the community putting their hands up to take part in Dec 8th's event. It's going to be one crazy night and on Sturday evening some of our acts got together to find out more on what it's all about. The word is all positive...tell your friends and join us in a celebratory evening on December 8th of O'Loughlin Gaels’ standing in the St. John's Parish Community. With the club celebrating 50 years next year this is a great way to kick start the celebrations. The acts will look after themselves, but there is still lots to do. We need volunteers, sponsors, and services so if you can help please contact any of the below and they'll put you in action!. All funds raised by LipSync Battles O'Loughlin Gaels will be offset towards a Juvenile Training Facility, upgrade of dressings rooms, showers & patrons toilets- and a new lift to improve accessibility in the club.

IT was a disappointing couple of days for the adult teams that promised so much. On Saturdays the seniors were pipped by city rivals James Stephens by a single point after a tentative league final at Nowlan Park. A good start to the 2nd half saw the Gaels lead by 5 points 10 mins in but the Village reeled back in that lead to make it a cat & mouse game to the final whistle. The village took their final opportunity however and took spoils.
It was a much more clear cut story at Freshford on Sunday when the Juniors exited the championship after a second half clinical display by neighbours Dicksboro. The boro boys put away their opportunities as they came about and finished out deserving nine point winners advancing to the semi-finals. Hard luck to all involved who put in a superb effort all year showing great potential for the coming seasons. A big thanks to all involved in looking after all our teams
There was mixed fortunes for our camogie teams last weekend with two teams competing in County Finals. The Minor Girls gave a great account of themselves in a very competitive match at Callan against Kilmacow/Slieverue. In a very tight game the teams were inseparable at the end of normal time but Kilmacow benefited from a goal in the extra time period that gave them a lead they would not relinquish. It was a super effort by the girls and management who have been brilliant all year. Well done girls
It was better news on Saturday afternoon in Clara when the u12 girls triumphed in their County Final with a solid win over Ballyhale. These girls have been undefeated all year and their reward has been richly deserved. Well done to all involved.
Well done to O'Loughlin Gaels Handball John Morrissey and Willie Murphy from Kilfane who won the Masters 60.30 Leinster final last week in Wicklow against Wexford opposition representing Kilkenny GAA Handball.. They go on to play Ulster in the All-Ireland semi final in 2 weeks time. Best of luck gentlemen.
