In recent years the committee decided to take on the construction of a new 40x20 court. The new court will complement the existing 60x30 court to become a unique facility providing year round handball in County Kilkenny with a future add on wall ball court. This state of the art handball facility will serve GAA Handball proudly in the south east from the coming season and ensure the future of handball in Kilfane.
Funded by Kilkenny Leader Partnership, Kilkenny County Council and Sports Capital Programme, the Kilfane Handball Club Development Draw will help complete this exciting build. Launched last weekend the Development Draw has already had a very positive response from the handball community and beyond.
- 1st Prize is a Ride on Lawn mower valued at €3500 or €3000 in cash
- 2nd Prize €1000 cash
- 3rd Prize €500 cash
Tickets are €20 each and can be bought from club members or by DM via the Kilfane Handball Facebook Page. The draw will take place in the club rooms on Sunday 27th of October.

The Kilkenny GAA community was numbed with sadness on Tuesday on hearing the news that Br Damien Brennan had passed away. Br Damien has long been associated with Kilkenny GAA and Callan in particular. As Principal of Coláiste Éamann Ris, Callan and a former Kilkenny Minor Hurling Manager Br Damien has long established and deep roots in the Kilkenny Community. Br Damien reached out and helped so many in his time with us, something that was very evident from the large number of callers over the past few weeks.
Kilkenny GAA would like to extend its sympathies to Br Damien's family, sisters Bridie, Margaret, Catherine and Bernie, brothers Liam and Seán and his extended family and the CBS Callan community. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
