In Croke Park on Sunday the GAA commemorated the centerary of the Easter Rising with "Laochra" which was presented to a full house of over 80,000 after the Allianz League Football Final. Kilkenny was represented by Danesfort GAA Club, Graigue Ballycallan GAA Club and Kilfane Handball Club. Danesfort members have described it as a once in a lifetime experience and they were hugely priviliged and proud to wave the Kilkenny flag as part of the ceremony.
14 year old J J Ryan from Graigue Ballycallan was one of the children selected to read the proclamation.
