Kilkenny GAA's 4th Annual Race Day takes place this Saturday March 19th at Gowran Park. This is one of our major fund-raisers for the Senior Players Training and Holiday Fund. A feature of this year's event will be the presence of Kilkenny All Ireland winning captains going back to 1963. Members of the current squad and the Liam Mc Carthy Cup will also be present. Last year an under 12 and under 14 Long Puck competition proved to be a tremendous success and will be repeated again this year. Weather forecast is excellent for the week so why not come out and enjoy a great Kilkenny GAA day out.
Thomastown GAA Club suffered severe flood damage in the recent winter storms. With a view to financing the repairs, which were not covered by insurance, the Club has organised the " Grianán Festival Weekend" from 10th to 12th June. Highlight of the event will be a Concert featuring Nathan Carter on the Saturday night. On Friday night Bennettsbridge GAA will provide the opposition in the "Battle of the Castle" boxing match. Then on Sunday the Club's highly popular Family Fun Day with Vintage Show will be held.
